This is the story I heard on a grey Sunday morning.
"When I was a little girl I had a lovely doll pram, which I used to play with outside, pushing it up and down on the street all day long. I was so proud of my pram that I wanted everybody to see it. Suddenly, one of its wheels came off. How sad it was, crying and very upset I went to see my mum hoping for some help. Calmly she said that dad would fix it for me in the end of the day after finishing his work. Patiently I waited and waited for him, when finally dad got home. He smiled and assured me he would fix my pram wheel after his dinner. He took his tool box and started to select some screwdrivers to fix my pram. I hardly could hold the screwdriver in my small hands, but I decided to do it myself. I tried very hard while my dad was watching me for a while. Gently with care and love my dad put his hands over mine, precisely screwing the wheel back to the pram, firm and steady.
Many years have passed since then. I grew up, but I have not forgotten the hands that have guided me all the way through.

Ephesus was located near the mouth of the Cayster River only three miles from the coast. It became the capitol of Asia Minor. The emperor had made Ephesus a free city and it was given the title “Supreme Metropolis of Asia.” It also contained one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the temple of Diana, and was a center of mystical cult worship. “The temple was 425 feet long, 220 feet wide, and 60 feet high, with great folding doors and 127 marble pillars, some of them covered with gold. The worship of Diana was ‘religious immorality’ at its worst.
This picture was taken in July 2012 when we met for a Sunday lunch. As always, we laughed with each other. The distance links our heart and our love. One in South Africa, one in USA, one in Scotland and two in Brazil.
When Lord says: "Stay in peace, I will look after yours." You must trust.
