Bikes and Birds:
On Monday 17th September we joined ‘Kay Farrell’ on a Malaga’s original bike tour. http://www.malagabiketours.eu
The sun was shining as usual as our friend and landlord Brian Simpson drove us to Fenugirola metro station. We enjoyed the usual pleasant and quick ride onboard to Malaga central in the comfort of air-conditioning…..bliss!!
John and I chose pink bikes which had all been personally named; happily Kay gave me ‘George Clooney’ and john was allocated ‘Elizabeth Taylor’….who says God does not have a sense of humour!!
We had a really lovely four hour tour with Kay as our guide; she was an’ excellent guide’, funny, witty and humorous, giving us all the historical information, it was clear; she ‘Loved Malaga.’ Please visit the website and see all the lovely photos, bikes, news, in fact everything you need to know if you’re thinking of visiting Malaga in Spain and seeing the sights; ‘It’s a very good destination for a long weekend!!’
Kay took us to the local market; anyone who loves markets will love this one, all the paraphernalia of fish, fruit, olives, nuts, vegetables… a food lovers paradise!! We also visited the old Bullring; history and spirit of Spain alive! We saw the Cathedral and the special housing for the ‘floats’ that come out for religious festivals to honour the ‘Risen Christ’ Quite an amazing sight and to imagine 250 men carrying this on their shoulders, incredible!!
On our return home to our little paradise house in the ‘Garden of Eden’ (this is our nickname for our new home on the Costa del Sol, because it so green, beautiful, and peaceful, we see giant rainbows every morning when the water system is turned on!!) we found a dead Sparrow on our terrace. Now Jesus said in……
Matthew 10: 29. Are not two Sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your father’s care. And even the hairs of your head are all numbered. So……don’t be afraid; ‘You are worth more than many sparrows’
What a lovely scripture Jesus is telling us that we are precious to him; (precious to God) That does not just apply to John and I it is for everybody who believes and trusts in the risen Lord Jesus Christ…….So if you don’t know Jesus Christ take a moment in your heart to give your life into his care….because he cares for you. Cast all your burdens on the Lord: Matthew 11: 28 ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29: Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30: For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Don’t think for a moment that giving your heart to Jesus Christ means that you have to start going to church and being a ‘Good’ person……not at all, it will be just the beginning for a life of peace, guidance, direction in all your decisions, you will find help @ hand 24/7….don’t just believe me, reach out and try for yourself. Get a Bible and read ‘God’s word’ you will never regret it!!
Another amazing feature of our Home in the Garden of Eden; we have discovered that we have Hoopoe birds living in our trees!! We have also discovered that they are the ‘National Bird of Israel’
Wow what more can I say; God is in control of our lives!!! Trust him with yours today.
