1 I received a beautiful message from Ammar this morning that has set me up for the day. He was saying thank you for the lovely time we all spent together last week
2 I made the simplest and one of the most tasty lunches today – Puy Lentils with Tomatoes, Basil and Mozzarella and we ate it with a selection of leaves from our garden.
3 I had an email from my brother today about our reunion in July and asking if he could take The Family Bible back to Munich with him as it should be with him as he is the oldest of the four of us. That prompted me to go to it to have another look. A Family Bible has pages between the Old and New Testaments for the family to record Births, Marriages and Deaths so this is an invaluable family document. It was a present to my Great Grandmother on her marriage in 1885. There is a red marker between Luke IX and X but unfortunately I don’t know its significance.
I am a Humanist, not a Christian, nevertheless I find this a most beautiful book. It contains some amazing historical coloured maps of biblical regions, which have changed dramatically over the last 128 years.
Have a look through the gallery below for lots of fascinating photos.
