Looking forward to Spring

I have decided that I would like to see the end of winter and the beginning of Spring. I am getting a little tired of icy mornings and 10-13C each day. I think I have the winter "blues" - but only one more month of winter:)

Just finished another book that I thought I would share with you, its a new release - very sad - perhaps I should read more up-beat books at this time of the year!

Frida: Chosen to Die, Destined to Live by Frida Gashumba
This book is about the genocide in Rwanda in 1994 - I am still amazed at how quicky human beings can be convinced that it is a good idea to kill 1000's of innocent people just because of the tribe they are. Frida survives (just), however 15 members of her family are slaughtered and she is completely traumatized as would be expected. But through her new Christian faith she becomes strong enough to forgive those who killed her family and find happiness through her husband and children and wanting to share her faith with others.

(David, if you want to read it I will post it to you and pick it up in October?)


  1. I love spring, I've decided it is probably my favourite season, followed closely by autumn. It has been cold here a few times this winter, but all up so far it is quite a mild one!

  2. I would like to read the book, if possible.
