Cellardyke

Strange that in my by now fairly exhaustive knowledge of central Scotland in general and Fife in particular …. I have never been to Cellardyke.Β  But how amazingly beautiful the villages of the East Neuk are.Β  One feels for the poultry farmers – while noting abstractly that the bird population of the wild bird risk area is 163 times the total membership of the Scottish Episcopal Church.

    Notice how on the news reports that it is Scotland that has bird flu, not United Kingdom? But I’m sure if it had been located in England it would have been said to be in the UK. Almost the same as the Curling team who won Olympic Gold despite all being Scottish, were British. I hate double standards. As for the wild bird population being greater than the congregation is an interesting statistic. Perhaps the poultry farmers could be persuaded into the church to say a few prayers. Speaking of prayers and technology, I wanted to share the following prayer with you.

    Dear Lord,

    Every single evening
    As I’m lying here in bed,
    This tiny little Prayer
    Keeps running through my head:

    God bless all my family
    Wherever they may be,
    Keep them warm and safe from harm
    For they’re so close to me.

    And God, there is one more thing
    I wish that you could do;
    Hope you don’t mind me asking,
    Please bless my computer too.

    Now I know that it’s unusual
    To Bless a motherboard,
    But listen just a second
    While I explain it to you, Lord.

    You see, that little metal box
    Holds more than odds and ends;
    Inside those small compartments
    Rest so many of my friends.

    I know so much about them
    By the kindness that they give,
    And this little scrap of metal
    Takes me in to where they live.

    By faith is how I know them –
    Much the same as you –
    We share in what life brings us
    And from that our friendships grew.

    Please take an extra minute
    From your duties up above,
    To bless those in my address book
    That’s filled with so much love.

    Wherever else this prayer may reach
    To each and every friend,
    Bless each e-mail inbox
    And each person who hits “send”.

    When you update your Heavenly list
    On your own Great CD-ROM,
    Bless everyone who says this prayer
    Sent up to GOD.com

    AMEN

    Hope you liked it πŸ™‚

  2. Robyn, I had a nice smile after reading your dotcom prayer. Do you mind if I submit it to my church newsletter?

    That dead bird wasn’t in Scotland. It was in Fife.

    But what does one do about the spammers and the endless Viagra sales E Mails? Should my Christian charity extend even that far?

  7. Robyn says:

    Hahahaha πŸ™‚ Glad to know I’m not the only one being targeted by the Viagra hawkers. I also keep getting begging letters from African beneficiaries asking me to claim their millions on their behalf. I send these and the unwanted offers of viagra into the bin. I just hope that one day, I wont come to realise that I could have thrown out something that was really, really important without knowing it.
