The Sydney Opera House. - Australian 2013 Bush Fires.

The Sydney Opera House is celebrating its fortieth Anniversary, so I am posting photos of it as shown in the Festival of Lights.
Since I grew up in New South Wales where Sydney is the capital city, I used to enjoy a nice Ferry boat ride on the harbour. The views are spectacular and just looking at these photos makes me want to go and see it again.
 




I am still working hard at Bible College. 
My memory is not as good as it could be so I am not finding the exams easy.
I guess I need to realise my age.

 And, the Bush Fires are still flourishing in New South Wales. They are not close to Sydney but hundreds of acres have perished and many homes with a few lives.

Our kangaroos are fast enough to escape danger.

But the koala's don't fare as well.

In case you don't know? Koala's get their fluid supply from the gum leaves, they have
to be extremely thirsty to drink like this little fellow.

To all of our brave Firies (fire fighters)....may God protect you.


Some overseas News reports say that the whole of Australia is on fire..
Not True.....  We are a big country and bigger than many people realise.

  1. The colors are a bit much for an old curmudgeon like me, but I like the design. My heart goes out to the firies, the wildlife affected and those who are losing what they've worked their lives to gain. My prayers are with them and you.

  8. Hi Crystal, dear friend,
    The Sydney Opera House looks spectacular. I did not know that you lived closed to the capital city of Australia. It must have been an exciting childhood over there. About the forest fires, it is very sad to hear what is going on about that. Poor Koalas, who suffer a great deal of consequences of nature damages!
    Thank you so much for visiting my sites, and writing your heartfelt comments, sweetheart!
    God may always bless you, your dear family and beloved ones!
    Blessings,
    Poet Starry Dawn.

This is on the ocassion of Opera House Fortieth Annerversary Celebration. Beautiful posing of pictures. Well I am more impressed by your life in the Lord Jesus and this has made me to share about the ministry we have in the slums of Mumbai to the poorest of poor giving hope, future and new life to the broken hearted people. I am in the Pastoral ministry for last 34yrs in the great city of Mumbai, India a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live.We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young people as well as adults from the developed countries to come on a short / long term missions trip to work with us in the slums of Mumbai amongs poorest of poor. We would love to have you come and encourage our women in the church as well as help us in reaching out the poorest of poor with the love of Christ.

    1. Hello Diwakar, Lovely to meet you also. I am no longer a young woman and am feeling my age. I am in Bible College in the town where Iive, and it has been a struggle to keep up with the work load. I will no longer travel oversea's due to my health and the expense. My husband and I are commited to help four children in different countries, so we cannot take on any more commitments. There are so many needs and we have allways helped the best we can. I will pray for you though, and there is nothing beyond what God can do. Blessings to you and your people.
