SHARING THE JOY OF A LOVELY FEAST

by

Recent days here in Yogyakarta have been so lovely. We have all been blessed by the celebration of Idul Fitri, the day that marks the end of Ramadan. The day before Idul Fitri we gave out parcels to our neighbours. That evening prayers rang out from the mosque turning all of our thoughts to God. It was touching to hear the voices of children from time to time. We spent Friday morning walking round the village wishing our neighbours a happy Idul Fitri and making mutual apologies for any mistakes made in the last year. A beautiful atmosphere of peace and calm has pervaded the village for the last four days.  How lovely to celebrate this special feast with our Muslim neighbours.

    Thank you, Clare.Your words brought back happy memories.Sadly, some people in Australia have no appreciation of Moslems or Moslem culture. On the other hand i recently attended the 90th birthday of an old friend of mine and his son-in-law Rachid was the master-of ceremonies for this very happy gathering of well of a hundred guests.
