Some photos just taken from my window … beautiful colours of sunset – Sunday evening, 28 August 2011.  The radar pictures show us on the ‘edge’ of Irene, but we really didn’t get any rain here, just winds today.

Now in the fading light of day, Maker of all, to You we pray, that with Your ever-watchful love, You guard and keep us from above …

Help and defend us through the night, danger and terror put to flight, never let evil have it’s way, preserve us for another day …

Father Almighty, this be done through Jesus Christ, our Lord Your Son, Whom in the Spirit we adore, Who reigns with You for evermore.   Amen!
