I am Blessed


I am blessed
To live in a land of wide open spaces
Of dense gum tree forests
Of sun soaked beaches

I am blessed
To live in a country where many people come together
Where differing opinions doesn’t equal persecution
Where I am free to worship my God

I am blessed
To live in a land where ever person can have their say
Where our leaders are held accountable
Where we are free from conflict and war

I am blessed
To live in a country which has a history
But, more importantly, has a future

I am blessed to be Australian



Happy Australia Day!

Happy Australia Day, Erin! We celebrated with a BBQ of more meat than I have ever seen outside a butcher's shop. Hope you had a great day - it was a little overcast here in Sydney :( (although it made a welcome change from Brisbane's 90% humidity, which I nearly died in last week) Kit.
