For any of you that have put up with my scribble over the last couple of days, this is the last posting about my 2 days of "Heaven-on-Earth", that I had in London!
I Had to be out of bed, in time to leave by 6.45 ... as I had not really slept for the 2 nights that wasn't a problem!
I decided at 5.30am I might as well give up the pretense of sleeping ... my foot was sore (LOL), and the adrenaline was still pumping! I hadn't brought my normal Bible with me, so decided this morning to read my favourite book - Philippians. It is written by Paul to friends, not long before he dies, yet it is full of love and hope ... With the great verse -
"God shall supply all your needs"
That is a verse I need, as I always muddle wants and needs!
Anyway, there is also a verse in there which says to -
"Whatsoever things are lovely ... if there be any praise ... Think on these things"
So, great to have a verse - and althpough Paul hadn't met James, I am sure that by stretching the verse, I could go back to my thoughts of the weekend!!
Anyway, once I had finished my QT, I showered, sorted the final things, and left. As I got to Picadilly Circus it was to realise that the train problems were going to affect me, so I had to go out to South Kensington, to return to Victoria ... and then hurry to the coach station. I just had time to grab a Danish and coffee (apple Danish, so it was healthy!!), before getting on the bus, and my final stage.
Although I hadn't listened to James on the way up, I turned on my mp3 onto James and let my mind drift.
Now to the weird part ....
I was listening to London City (and ironically it has just started as I began typing this sentance!!!!!!), and the word "Heathrow" came as I realised the coach was pulling to a halt - at Heathrow (and as the song went on - yes, there were slate grey skies) That was both weird,a nd utterly amazing. The bus stayed for some time, and then as it pulled out and re-joined the M4, Louise was playing - and as it was talking of Bristol (and Leeds), I saw the sign to Bristol.
So, my mp3 has obviously been programmed by James.
What a truly brilliant end to my weekend.
I had looked forward to, and wanted these days to come - yet, they went by so rapidly .. and that's the end of my James-dream for this year ... Hope he returns to London next May, as well!!
