While holidaying in the Western Cape I saw this moody scene and just had to stop and take a picture. A storm was brewing and it was almost as if God was watching us through a gap in the storm clouds, eerie indeed.

Hi Peter

Although this is a rather aged posting I want to use it to say the same to you as I've just said to some other members, "I am trying my best to catch the last bit of Christmas 2008 and with time running out at a drastic rate I have to push to get this one in before the final bell tolls".

The dark moody (eerie) shot was rather appropriate to get your message across. The bright rays of the sun (SON) breaching the darkness is representative of how the Light overcome the darkness. This made me think of some of the words to a song by Chuck Girrard called Set The Trumpet To Your Mouth which goes like this:

"I see the sun arisin' and it's light comes into view.
I see the day beginning and it looks like the day is new.
I see a people in the distance just talkin'.
I see a shadow in the distance just watchin'.

There's a man sitting down over there and as I watch, He begins to rise.
I'm impressed as he stands to his feet by his grace, and by his size.
He lifts his hands and he beckons to the people who are talkin'.
He starts to move and all at once all the people start a walkin'.

There's a crack in the back of the black and a Light shines upon the plain.
All the voices of the people are ascending and soon it begins to rain.
Thunder strikes as the Lord cries out.
All the people give a mighty shout.
Lord, set the trumpet to your mouth and blow...
" etc.

Well done MF and TFS.

PS. More importantly, I want to thank you for the wonderful friendship you extended to me during 2008. Also, I want to wish you and your loved ones a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. May this Christ-fest and the imminent 2009 bring you everything that is beautiful and admirable, provide all your needs with blissful abundance, present you with that which is edifying and inspiring, grant you blessed peace and harmony, and bestow upon you a myriad of worthwhile pleasures and breathtaking moments with close friends and dear family.
