'Rock Solid Foundation'
(Archived on Friday - August - 13/08/2010 )

  Photo was taken yesterday in perfectly calm waters just off the Fastnett Rock, West Cork (Irl)  
The lighthouse on Fastnett rock is one of the most famous lighthouses in the world. It marks Ireland's most southerly point. In 1847 90 lives were lost when a ship ran aground on rocks in West Cork near Crookhaven. A decision was then taken to build a lighthouse on the Fastnett rock. The first lighthouse was built there in 1854 made of cast iron, but fierce Atlantic Storms swept it away. (The rusty base of this old lighthouse can still be seen in our photo today) The current lighthouse is made of Cornish granite and is well able to withstand the ferocity of the Atlantic.

'We need to plan and to trust. Act on what lies within our control. Leave what is beyond our control beyond our control. Change what we can. Accept the rest.' ~Joe Armstrong

It is a natural instinct to be in control. We have heard about the longest journey beginning with a single step. That single step forward means we are in control, knowing where we are going and how to get there. But life often puts many things beyond our control. We can't control the weather, the outcome of the ongoing recession, the timing of an unexpected event or crisis. Many fear that today Friday 13th is a recipe for negative events outside our control. But such fear is built on other people's fear. Why choose to let others be the cause of your fears and worries? Today may be Friday 13th but I can choose to do something good and positive today. I can choose to do my best throughout this day. I can choose to make someone's life even a tiny bit better today. I can also ask God to gently guide and direct me through this day.
