Love this city ...


Opera house and harbour bridge

On a slightly brighter note...

Just been for a jog over lunch time. When I came round the bend of Mrs Macquarie's Chair and turned and faced the sparkling, sunny city skyline with the gardens in the foreground, and the Opera House and Bridge to the side, all against a backdrop of a perfect autumn blue sky, it was hard not to think I'm blessed to live in the most beautiful city in the world. Simply magic ...

Of course, it ain't got nothin' on this city, which has the added advantage of a bit more racial harmony to boot.

Sorry, it's a bit distracting reading that particular comment with your blogger photo on the right staring me in the face!

But, yes, you're right. My intention was to say Sydney is physically a beautiful city.

And frankly, the stunning beauty is largely confined to the city and harbour and a few glam beachside suburbs. Otherwise, it's pretty much life-as-normal out in the 'burbs. And as I said in my previous post, scratch the surface and you can uncover some pretty dark stuff in this town.

But having said all that, for what it's worth, the views are spectacular and for that we can thank God, while looking forward to the city that shines with a "brilliance ... like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal!"

As an alien and stranger in this land, I can relate to those who long for a city/country of their own:
"All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own. "
Heb 11:13-15
