Memories Remain

Making Memories

Memories remain

Within my heart and mind

of things so long ago

of things I’ve left behind.

Of people I have loved

and lost along the way….

the spirit still lives on,

the love is here to stay.

It only takes a moment,

 

to restore what used to be,…

like footprints in the sand

they’ve left their mark on me.

Memories remain

forever they will be….

ingrained upon my heart,

where love resides in me.

I devote these words to special people who have touched my life and moved on,who have grown up and made a new life for themselves, who have died but still live in my memory.

Century Celebrations

Not an everyday occurrence

Last week as I passed by Coolabunia School I spied this Gigantic Koala taking pride of place near the  front entrance to this cute education facility It caught my eye and I hopped out of my car with my trusty phone and snapped his picture. I thought some enterprising farmer was using this unusual idea to sell his hay. I shared the picture with not a thought of any other reason for having this giant on display.

Then we had lunch at our favourite eatery and— lo and behold we came across the same picture in the local newspaper.

 

Some enterprising parents and past students had  constructed this eye catching fellow to draw attention to the up- and- coming celebrations in May 2016 for the school’s 125th anniversary.

it’s to be a community event with activities throughout the day which will include a hay maze, a maypole (I remember doing this as a little girl), a working machinery display, old fashioned activities such as egg and spoon race(which was fun if you didn’t drop the egg- they didn’t cook them in those days),a recorder band (horrible tinny old noise, but everyone could play one).

Education has changed but community spirit is still alive.

 It looks like an event not to miss out on.

And what a great way to inform everyone that a great Australian icon EDUCATION is still alive and kicking- don’t you think?

See you there on Saturday May 25th 2016 

Where Coolabunia State School, D’Aguilar Highway Coolabunia.

 

Congratulations to the creators. I’m sure everybody has seen it!

Beauty in the eye of the beholder

1 Peter 3:3

 

It is not fancy hair, gold jewellery, or fine

clothes that should make you beautiful.

” No, your beauty should come from

within you – the beauty of a gentle and

quiet spirit. This beauty will never disappear

and is worth MUCH MORE to GOD.

 

 

 Nothing can buy inner beauty.It is there naturally.

 Think of the time and money we have to expend to achieve outer beauty.
