This

was going to be yet another forray into sadness, bitter-sweet times past. Then I ventured into Facebook to find one of my OU and click of the mouse friends had put up some photos.
Thanks to Susan England for giving me permission to borrow from her set of photos. 


A long, long time ago before colour photography became commonplace, let alone the marvels of digital imagery, I visited Coventry cathedral as part of a youth group. I remember the awe in the truest sense of the word when I first set eyes upon the tapestry.


Graham Sutherland tapestry

The city of Coventry was blitzed in WWII. Amongst the devastation was the ancient cathedral. As with other blitzed cities a decision was made to incorporate the old with the new. 


This year marks the cathedral's Golden Jubilee.

How lovely! So sorry you are feeling sad. 2011 was a tough year for me too. Too many people I know died too young. Too many became seriously ill but are fighting on. I truly pray that 2012 will be a much better year for all my family and friends - including you!

Last year was tough for so many people. Thank you for your good wishes. Amen to your prayers for us all.
