The following is from a memorial poem that I found via Molskinerie, I’m not entirely sure for what specific memorial but I really liked it.

Something resonated.

Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep,
peaceful sleep.
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.

Memorial Day 2007


indelible.jpgLast night a mosquito gave me a fat lip and (it at least feels like it) mauled my face. I always use the word ‘needless’ – but needless to say, I didn’t sleep very well. I know I had a war with what I thought was a fly throughout that time – fly – mosquito, perhaps one and the same – annoying.

I have one assignment out of the way, one close to done and two more to finalise after that. A whopper headache due to the above paragraph, people coming for dinner and have spent too much money on buying supplies to submit uni assignments.

I have spent the past few days, catching up with some old Gush crew to think things , meeting Matt Glover (He’s a nice guy) and hanging out with Burkie and Beth. James (Burkie) is going to be doing our wedding photos – this is not why we went and hung out with them, we went because he is a ripper cook and we like them… Definitely the latter. The food was good. The house was intriguing and the months of meaning to catch up have finally eventuated – it turns out he lives only about 10mins from me. They’re fun.

We had a Slum Survivor night for youth group and had a fantastic evening. Youth is now all ‘blogged up’ so you can go and have a look.

One of my year seven girls leant me a Pink CD so I can listen to the song about homelessness – I am delighted and bemused, I haven’t listened to it yet.

I had a brainwave to do with something wedding related.

A long put off chat that needed to be had was had.

Dad came back from a month away in the Solomons.

And reading over my last blog. I apologise.
