Thanksgiving – Going Home

There is something really special about Unity

A crowd of unknown people gathering with a common cause

We find ourselves going in the same direction

With one heart

In one accord

Bringing Harmony to often discordant lives

And I am thankful

  • A funeral service becoming a heartfelt celebration of life,
  • Remembering  that says so much about the young man, gone home
  • His vigilant and loving family
  • That we could call him friend
  • Crush hour all homeward bound
  • Football fun and fervour – all codes
  • Essential Pursuits = Trivial Pursuits raising funds for an Indonesian Library
  • Grey Power to the fore
  • Fading light of evening
  • City lights spectacular

  • Long road trip safely completed
  • Clean and well-kept wayside stop, serving edible fresh food, salads and sandwiches.
  • 3rd generation dairy farmer, strange combination of Italian and Bush Aussie accent
  • Hardworking men  and women of the land
  • Dormant orchards and vineyards – a pregnant pause before spring
  • The timely words of Much Encouragement, bringing forth fruit – thank you

  • Borrowed pressure cooker returned full of soup – wow
  • Visiting friends
  • Sharing feasts and favours
  • Lovely long wheelie-walk in brisk winter sunshine
  • Lakeside detour
  • Songs, Colour and Rhythm of Africa
  • Spirit, Love and Life of God
  • Hope and Faith against all the odds
  • Opportunity to entertain Angels – such a Blessing
  • Calm Comfort in which they rest and play
  • Discovery of Other-Culture
  • Our lives Our hearts – expanded
  • Earthmother reawakened
