I had a frivolous and light post planned to on Friday night and then with the news of the bombings and shooting in Oslo it just didn't seem appropriate. Such a gentle and peaceful nation it is going to take sometime before they bounce back - although STRONG is something I would tag any Norwegian.
So I thought I would write about something I know little about but my closest friends know lots about GOD.
Where I work we hire certain rooms out for weddings we also have the most beautiful and charming little church on the estate, I love going in there and as a traditionalist at heart I find it very peaceful. Sadly, the church is not used very often for weddings as most of the couples getting married choose to have 'civil' ceremonies. I have never attended a 'civil' wedding before so it was quite a surprise to hear that God, Heaven or anything related is 'not allowed' to be mentioned during the ceremony. Oh I didn't like that!! I hear some of my friends sniggering :) I mentioned this to a colleague who abruptly laughed in my face and said but there is no God or Heaven anyway so why are you surprised? The pianist started to play and the wedding began. Conversation over......
This colleague is very interested in starting a blog - more a business blog than personal as she is quite a private person so I often chat to her about blogs. I was reading Caz's blog on Friday during lunch and I read her 16 July post to my colleague to illustrate Caz's healing process on the loss of her baby nearly 2 years ago. My colleague burst into tears! The post was about Heaven...interesting? And she has never lost a baby.
