Learning from Mistakes!

"Mistakes are lesson of wisdom.
When you make a mistake,
don't look back at it for long.
Take the lesson and move forward.

Although the past cannot be changed;
How to escape the future is still in your hands."

Watching the Sky in Westminster Abbey, London, England

What a such dark sky in London as we visited Westminster Abbey. This Gothic church is also known as The Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster.

Here is an image I took during my visit last 2008.
HISTORY

According to a tradition first reported by Sulcard in about 1080, the Abbey was first founded in the time of Mellitus (d. 624), Bishop of London, on the present site, then known as Thorn Ey (Thorn Island); based on a late "tradition" that a fisherman called "Aldrich" on the River Thames saw a vision of Saint Peter near the site. This seems to be quoted to justify the gifts of salmon from Thames fishermen that the Abbey received in later years. The proven origins are that in the 960s or early 970s, Saint Dunstan, assisted by King Edgar, installed a community of Benedictine monks here. A stone abbey was built around 1045–1050 by King Edward the Confessor as part of his palace there and was consecrated on 28 December 1065, only a week before the Confessor's death and subsequent funeral and burial. It was the site of the last coronation prior to the Norman conquest of England, that of his successor Harold II. From 1245 it was rebuilt by Henry III who had selected the site for his burial. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westminster_Abbey

Beautiful Rose and the Nice Quote

"The wrinkles on a time-worn face
Can be symbols of God's grace,
If through our laughter and our tears
His love has freed us from our fears."
- D. De Haan
