Just out of picture we had an ELC garage as the city with tall temple, and a homemade cuckoo clock perched atop the Wii box as a high mountain. Jojo impressively said that the mountain must have been Mount Evrest- his pronunciation; we do know a lot about Everest and other big mountains in this house, don't we, dear?!
Interstingly our lives formed a perfect parallel to the Temptation story yesterday. From the great triumph of this creatively spiritual moment we descended into the hell of a day at home with two small boys that included a broken (favourite) vase and much lamentation on everyone's part. PC points out as I type that this is just like my own enlightened thought of the weekend- the Temptation comes immediately after the triumph of the Baptism. There you go...
I will not be giving up chocolate for Lent. I will be giving up the inordinate amount of time I use escaping to the Internet, ie facebook! And instead I will be going back to my usual Lenten read- Delia, but not with her chef's hat on. And generally trying to get back on top of my life here in Strawberry Land!
I have all your addresses saved into Favourites and will be reading you as special treats- but less from me for a while. Thank you for all your kind comments, and may Lent for you be a time of calm reflection- with more angels than wild beasts!
