Really Awful Bad Friday

Easter is upon us, and today the time has come

For Christian introspection, and for feeling rather glum,

Then, Saturday becomes an in-between-ish sort of day –

Activities resume, but in a wishy-washy way;

But Sunday is when Christian spirits should arise to be

Far more, yet, than for Christmas, in a state of ecstasy.

Egyptian Geese waiting for start of gala

 On a less serious note, when young R was collected from school on breakup day, the resident geese were again in evidence at the school pool awaiting a (Seniors) gala which was about to start.  Staunch supporters, obviously!

    So cute! The Geese look like they are ready to jump into the water for a swimming competition. Ready, steady, go!

  2. Lovely geese!
    I sat there early this morning, and remembered one of my favourite stories of all time, when Mary thinks the gardner has made of with the remains of Jesus. And when she asks him what he has done with this remains, the gardener say: “Mary”
    One of the most magical moments of all time: it beats a baby in swaddling, for sure.

    Do you think that R would be able to beat them in a race to the other end?

    That is such a special photograph – definitely worth submitting.

    Oh No, for me Good Friday is not glum
    For me the whole year adds up to one sum
    That Jesus died for my sins and to save me
    Makes me very very hap-py.
    That One should love me so much so
    That He would to The Cross go
    He is alive , there is no doubt of that
    Not walking earth but on Throne sat
    High up in Heaven He waits for me
    To join Him there and be forever free..


  6. Love the geese all lined up, waiting for a gander at the swimming contestants. 🙂

    Just to be different, Good Friday is a normal working day in Northern Ireland and our holidays are Easter Monday and Tuesday. I bet those geese swim better than I can!
