If this ever changing world...

..... in which we live, makes you give in and cry....

First they came for the Communists, 
but I was not a Communist
so I did not speak out.

They they came for the Socialists
and the Trade Unionists,
but I was neither,
so I did not speak out.

Then they came for the Jews,
but I was not a Jew
so I did not speak out.

Then they came for me,
and there was no-one left
to speak out for me.

Pastor Martin Niemöller

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing". Edmund Burke.

  2. We live in a :Fallen: world Arwedd,cruelty, injustice, and evil,live in this world, nothing new about that.But one day the imperfect will be made perfect,so until this happens, and God establishes His kingdom here on earth:
    John Wesley wise words:Do all the good you can
    By all the means you can
    In all the places you can
    At all the times you can
    To all the people you can
    As long as ever you can
    Love and Prayers Triciax

    1. Oops I obviously forgot to put a note in with yours, aswell as FM's.

      Yes they were from me and yes I did make the cards myself. They're not as good as the ones on some of the lovely craft Blogs I follow, but I'm trying to improve. Glad they brightened your morning, Amanda.
