ANZAC-Day-2022

ANZAC-Day-2022

 

Today, ANZAC Day 2022, in small towns

throughout Australia, New Zealand

and at many sites overseas…

…people of all ages will gather before sunrise

to attend Dawn Services and remember


Wreaths will be laid at local monuments

 

…to acknowledge the sacrifices made by those

who did, and did not, return from

the Great War and all subsequent conflicts

in which the Australian Military

has participated.

In the afternoon

Collingwood and Essendon football teams

will do battle in what has become one of

the highlights of the

Australian Football League calendar.

With COVID restrictions now lifted a maximum

of 100,024 fans will be allowed into the

Melbourne Cricket Ground

to watch the match which will commence

after ANZAC Day ceremonies

are completed with all in attendance

observing a minute’s silence.

Since Christmas 2016,

our Christmas tree…

…has been decorated…

…with mementos from…

 

…places we have visited…

 

..during our travels…

…although travelling has been on

the back burner these past two years,

we are hopeful that we may

get away in 2022.

fantastic

 
We decided that we would not…

 

…not ride London’s famous Eye…

 

…and remained steadfast with our decision

until we were shown some after dark

images taken from the Eye.

 

 

…I think this is…

 

…a fantastic display of…

…Christmas lights.

***

In July 2021 we visited,

with all family members,

a Winter Wonderland

light display.

 

The display was aimed…

 

…to entertain young children.

However, it did a good job of keeping

children of all ages entertained

on a cold winter night.

No matter where in the world we travel…

…a place of prayer and worship…

…is not that far away.

 

 Mostly we pray for peace and health…

 

…and yet there are still wars and insurrections

around the globe…

…and we see some places of worship

put to other uses.
