Ches tagged me


I normally hate these things, or I don't have time to do them, but Ches, Mr Bond, hasn't asked before and as it is reasonably simple: 7 things I like, or give pleasure. Here goes:


  1. High Mass

  2. Good food with good company

  3. 17th/18th century Opera well performed (a connection with 1.? Probably!)

  4. Walking the streets of a foreign city with a friend

  5. Talking to people who have discovered God loves them

  6. Watching a real craftsmen at work, even the waitress in the local Chinese Reastuarant boning a fish/ handling something beautifully made- anything a lute, a vestment, an axe

  7. Seeing kindness and tenderness.

The next part is naming 7 people, to do this themselves, well you can either do it on your own blog or post 7 things in the combox. If you criticise anyone's you won't be published.

In no particular order:

1 That moment which comes every now and then when you know, you just know, there is a God.

2 Family.

3 Doing your best for your family.

4 Laughter - and making others laugh.

5 Visiting Christian Blogs and writing Christian Blogs.

6 Gregorian Chants. I listen to the same CD over and again when waiting for someone in the car.

7 Cheese. Especially blue vein cheese.
