Good Friday

Today is Good Friday, a day in the course of human history that changed the world forever. On this day Jesus Christ died for our sins. Below is a clip from the musical Jesus Christ Superstar that, I believe, portrays Jesus in a very human light as he comes to terms with the fate that he has really signed up for; hours of pain and suffering in order to save mankind.


How ever you celebrate Good Friday spare a moment to think of what happened on this day years ago.

Breakfast

It's that time of year again when I need to be writing my essays and revising for my exams, but as usual for this time I have managed to catch a cold. Based on past experience, and as any medical professional will tell you, I have learned that there really isn't a cure for the common cold you can only ease the symptoms. In the past I have found that drinking lots of fluids, eating lots of fruit and not manically exerting myself are the best ways to speed recovery. Oh and taking cold relief drugs so that I can breathe. So with this in mind I headed to Morrisons to buy as many cold drugs and as much fruit as I could carry. As a result of this, this is what my breakfast looked like this morning:
(L->R) Two Tangerines, Paracetamol, OJ, Fruit Smoothie, Raspberry and Echinacea Tea, Branflakes with Soya Milk and Strawberries. As you can see I decided to stay away from the garlic this time.
My plan until I am well enough to sit in the library and not incurr the wrath of my fellow students by my sniffing and overwhelming smell of Olbas oil is to hit my immune system with as many vitamins as possible. So far so good.

Happy Mother's Day!

This is just a short message to all mothers wishing them a Happy Mother's Day and to say a big 'Thank you!' for all that you do. Sometimes it may not seem like we appreciate it but we do! Here's a poem for all mothers called 'Mother's Eyes' by Mary Hull;

What are the songs the mother sings?
Of birds and flowers and pretty things;
Baby lies in her arms and spies
All his world in the mother's eyes.


What are the tales the mother tells?
Of gems and jewels and silver bells;
Baby lies in her arms and spies
All his wealth in the mother's eyes.


What are the thoughts in the mother's mind?
Of the gentle Saviour, loving and kind;
Baby lies in her arms and spies
All his heaven in the mother's eyes.
