Roden Court

This is my R for Alphabe-Thursday, and also my explanation for a lack of strawberries over the next few days. It's half-term tomorrow- big cheer! Many tired and emotional small things here, myself included!


We're heading back to Roden Court- a little development of lovely houses opposite this gate to Tollymore Forset Park and the Mournes. It will be a No Entry Zone for work, worry and bickering. Well. Work and worry!

I blogged about it here and here when we ran away at Hallowe'en and Valentine's last year. There's a place below the Hermitage where many have left their mark along the lush, green riverside.

We'll trace our fingers over the grooves and wonder did they too lift up their eyes to the hills. When He keeps you from all harm-, watches over your life, watches over your coming and going both now and forever more- does that include watching over any damage you might do? Thought for the day from Psalm 21.

love travel pics... or is it that you're just someplace different than me? Like your banner too! Reminds me of embroidery...

Enjoy yourself.

And yes, I'm sure He sees the damage, too. I'm glad He's perfectly forgiving. (I need that.)

It sounds like a wonderful time will be had by all. Isn't it amazing to think that all the historic figures and even all the plain old ordinary folks over the years have read the Psalms?

What a charming place.

I am enchanted by the history of the grooves and the serenity of the space.

What a lovely stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "R".

I really enjoyed this link immensely.
