The name of the post is actually a song that i was listening to while talking to Nicole on video chat. And it came to me: the melody described exactly how my angel is. It reflects her love for me, her endless charm and beauty that I treasure so much. She is gentle yet vivid and powerful, she reaches every inch of me, my breath is following her rhythm.
P.S. The song is played by Yanni and is called In the Mirror
Wheather in UK is very different than what I was used to back home. But I can’t say that I don’t like it. I was prepared to face many rany days, but it wasn’t the case. It does rain often, but the sun makes it’s way several days per week. Autumn instaled itself here in the middle of October ( I think that’s late enough ) when leaves started to go yellow and the temperatures went as far as 12 degrees Celsius. But fall is so quiet and it takes you by surprise every day. All the colours, all the beautiful sunsets, the smell in the air.
I took a small visit in the Dane John’s Park, which is just across the road. The day was sunny and nice and I had to try my camera :). Here are some shots that I like very much.
A little robin. I didn’t know at first what bird is it but I googled it and found out that is an early Christmas robin. Christmas is just a month away! It’s songs are just beautiful…
This is a solar clock. I had to jump and take this photo cause the fence was too high for me and I couldn’t see the pane. I got some odd looks from the people passing by 😀
Three wild piglets with their pig mum 😛 are guarding the maze playing ground for kids.
Throughout the maze are little wooden rats/raccoons/weasels :D, so cute, I haven’t noticed them before. And there’s more …
AHA!! So that’s how it got up! This one was hidden in the leaves.
Biggest web I have ever seen. The tree was also very big and old. Couldn’t find the spider though.
I’m felling a little sad tonight. I’ve been studying for some hours and now I am so tired. Thinking of home… but one song cheered me up.
…and strength did rise at the thought of the Everlasting God who is now holding my hand. Praise the Lord!
Another month has gone by, this means that I’m in Canterbury for 2 months. Again, seems short, but not for me… I am feeling like home for some time now and I am coping very well with all the changes. Or at least I was until one or two weeks ago. I haven’t got home sick yet. But I am love sick. And it drives me crazy. I don’t know why I feel this way, cause all was going very smooth, seeing Chris every day on Skype, almost all the time I spend home I am online, live with him. But since I got my plane ticket to go home, I can’t find peace any more. I’m gonna be home on the 12th of December. 23 days for normal people, 234 days for me!!! I miss him so so much, and all my thoughts from before I had to leave Romania are coming back to me: whether is it right for me to leave his side, whether is ok to wait 3 more years or not… And this shouldn’t cross my mind, cause God already showed me multiple reasons for coming to Canterbury, and I trust Him with all my heart. It’s just that I have this constant pain in my soul and it is hard not to have my other half comforting me. And it is hard to be able to see but not to touch. I just pray for strenght and power every day and I am confident I am going to receive it. This is the test of our lives, so just hold on baby!
I do have some good news. I finally found a job, for the week-ends, and is something that I really like. And of course, I received my camera and I just love the feeling of having it around. I take photos everyday so that I can show to the others back home how my day was. Now be prepared cause I’m gonna bombard this blog with pictures 😀 :)).
”But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” Hebrews 2:9
River Stour going under the high street of Canterbury. The sun was just showing after some rainy weather.
Canterbury Cathedral. If you ever get lost in this town, it’s a good reference point.
A memorial for all the lost souls in the WW.
😀 Here I was in the public toilets near the Cathedral 😀 What??? They’re very clean :p
The Cathedral, by night time. I played a little with the photo on Photoshop.
