A nice mild sunny day here. Have watched several
football matches on TV. Peter’s team won, mine lost
though not playing each other. Now my son John’s team is
playing. Oh well, I like some background noise, as I live
alone. Mostly have Country Music on, but Footy is a change.
I hope everyone has had or is having a great weekend.

A Nice Little Poem……
If I have brought a gleam of light
To cheer a darkened day,
If I held out a friendly hand
To help along the way.
Then in these acts of kindness done
It is not me you see,
But glimpses of that Loving One
Who chose to dwell in me.
