Germany, Belgium, France.

Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith , love, perseverance, and gentleness . 1 Timothy 6:11. We travelled through Germany followed by the relatively flat green of Belgium with a stop in Namur and then the port in France. It is then a quick peek into the Baroque Cathedral dedicated to Saint Auban. Inside are the paintings of Jaques Nicolai who died in Namur in 1678. I found out from Google that the copyrights on his works have expired and that not much is known about him except that…

Don’t be worried/anxious. Believe in God. Believe in me . ( Jesus) My Father’s house has many exceptional homes.

John 14 : 1-3 Arriving in Como , on the southern tip of lake Como in northern Italy, we knew we couldn’t do it justice in a few hours. It deserves a visit with more time. From our park up… Como has “The…

Acquaterme Italy

Because God loved the world, He gave someone He loved very much just so that those who believed He existed would not die forever but would be raised to everlasting life when He came at the last day. John 3:16 and John 6:40 (Sandy’s understanding) Acquaterme is a city in Alessandria Piedmont, northern Italy. A city whose streets were lined with market stalls and food cooked before your eyes, a type of street theatre. Look at this: A German couple informed me that those flecks meant a good variety. We all…

Chiavari Italy

Jesus is talking about himself and God and this is my understanding about what Jesus is saying. All the people who the Father (God) has given to me (Jesus) will come to me and I (Jesus) will not throw (cast) them out. (There is no force only a daily choice to be governed by the Holy Spirit and His words from The Bible.) John 6 : 37 Here are a few things he said: “Riches don’t make a man rich, they only make him busier. “ Christopher Columbus “By prevailing over…

Monteriggioni Tuscany Italy

God said: ” Look I have given you every herb bearing seed, and every tree with its seed in its fruit on the earth. This is so you will have food.” Genesis 1:29 Sandy’s understanding. We should see a tree full of fruit as a gift from God just as if He put it into our hands. EGWhite. “Actually the true gourmet, like the artist, is one of the unhappiest creatures existent. His trouble comes from seldom finding what he constantly seeks. Perfection.” Ludwig Bermelmans (1898-1962 Austrian-American writer and illustrator of…

Saturnia and two towns on the way .

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Romans 12:18 After leaving L’Aquila we spent Sabbath in Rieti, a city in the centre of Italy surrounded by mountains. It was 10’C . We worshiped with a small group all in our coats. We decided to see Rieti another time and traveled approx 100km l, which included three long tunnels. This left the cold behind and our new allocated parking area was outside the walls of Tuscania opposite the very tidy graveyard. Early in…

Navelli, Capestrano,L’Aquila

For in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare. On that day there shall be a great earthquake… Ezekial 38: 19 – 20 (some strong language left unchanged by me Acts 17: 30-31 also continues with this theme.)

Here are some facts: 1500 people were injured 202 seriously 308 lost their…

Sulmona Italy

Sulmona is a city in the province of L’Aquila in Abruzzo. It is surrounded by mountains but is in a plane which was once a lake long before civilization was part of this scenery. No one who believes in Jesus Christ is under bondage to the law of God; for His law is a law of life, not of death, to those who obey its precepts. All who comprehend the spirituality of the law, all who realise its power as a detector of sin, are in just as helpless a condition…
