Thanks Specsavers and (2)

I'm getting on well with the School of Life 'Small Pleasures' but it's got some darker items hidden away within, particularly around our physical frailties - really as soon as we're born we're in decline it's generally a case of when we really start to realise it.
Windows are a bit like eyes

On such a note there are some compensations and a pleasure I had today was to be told that my decline (with respect to my sight) is not so rapid as I might have feared,

It's just over 2 years since my last eye check up and again Specsavers are providing free tests - the test seemed pretty thorough still involving the blast of air to the eye and the reading of  various lines of text but I don't need new or stronger glasses.

I also felt during the test how nice it was for some care and interest - 'How had my general health been?' I was asked and I realised again things were not too bad - thanks for a good experience Specsavers and I expect I'll get another pair of glasses soon

I'm now at £2.44

Faith & Religion

reminded today of some of the contradictions around the holiness and 'otherness' of Jesus that Christianity is predicated on - how is he a 'man' and human' in terms of his temptations and ability to resit the 'sins of the flesh'?

How does he feel about Mary Magdelene (who it seems is something of a biblical composite) what is attitude to his own earthly family?  Is Jesus a typical Jewish son?

Methodists it seems have a more positive image of Mary Magdalene than some other 'branches' of Christianity.
