Whether it is music or songs you write, whether it is needlework or artwork or any other product that you make, whether it is research work or anything you write that you think is important: Make it your own MASTER piece. Essentially, there will always be people who like your work and those who will despise it. The message that the lady gives that the only thing important in life is what YOU yourself think of your work…..
Take some time off to check if the IPCC is correct in saying that the climate crisis is worse than it ever was. John Christy is a well known expert in climatology.
I am sure that, like me, you are pleased to see that all Covid rules are being retracted so that we are now all able to celebrate Easter the way we were used to, by being able to visit church on Good Friday and Easter Sunday and reflect on the unmatched expression of God’s unconditional love for us: Jesus dying on the cross and rising again on Easter Sunday, so we could be reconciled to God as sons and daughters in His Kingdom (John 3:16).
I have made a small collection of thoughts on Peter’s denial of his faith in Christ and then his subsequent affirmation of that faith in Him! See here:
No matter what anybody tells you, always remember that the Gospel – the Good News (from God) to announce your salvation – is absolutely for free!! It does not cost anything. The price was paid by God Himself. This is what we celebrate on Easter day!
We also have brought back the passion play “The Glory of Easter’ as performed in the Crystal Cathedral many years ago. We had previously broadcast this play in 3 half hour pieces but we were now able to show it on the internet in one program. It is the first video, please click here:
We want to thank you very much for your faithful donations and contributions. I am pleased to say that despite Covid we still have been able to keep up with our commitments. However, it is true that we lost one big donor recently due to circumstances beyond our control and we are concerned about inflation, what with the war still going on in Europe. As it stands at the moment we cannot consider any increase in expenditure for Heart for Children. May we ask you to prayerfully consider if you can perhaps afford to adapt your contribution? For those of you that do not yet make a regular monthly contribution: we hope and pray that you will consider doing this. The need is really very big. There are many reports coming in now saying that since Covid many more children are ending up on the street again. By making a regular monthly contribution (any size) we can plan our support for the children’s homes much better. To see the homes that Hart voor Kinders / Heart for Children currently is supporting, see here:

We wish you and your loved ones a peaceful Passover and a very blessed Easter!!! Please drive carefully and stay safe.
Fig. 1: The HadCRUT4 dataset, shows no global warming for almost eight years!
The media tell us almost every day now that we have a global warming problem due to our emission of more carbon-dioxide (CO2). Let us just look at the extent of the ‘problem’. Since 1979 we have satellites doing the global infra-red temperature measurements (UAH). See here ‘The linear warming trend since January 1979 stands at +0.13 C/decade (+0.12 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.18 C/decade over global-averaged land)’. Before the satellite time, we had people looking at thermometers in a number of places on earth. In Fig.2 below I show the global results from Hadcrut4 as measured and reported.
The trendline is down. In other words, there was no warming from 1935 to 1979. The 1935 date was chosen because of the length of the Gleissberg solar cycle which is ca. 87 years. I would expect that over the length of the period 1935-2022, deltaT should be 0. Assuming that our temperature on earth is dominated by this weather cycle, we note that the extra warming from 1935 until now other than from solar forcing is in fact not more than 0.5C, in total. This is really the maximum extent of the ‘problem’, as anyone will find it. We must place this amount of warming in context with the fact that the accuracy and recording of temperature in the past was not as good as it is now. Also, that the extra 0.5C warming of earth is not unprecedented in the history of earth, e.g. see here
The HadCRUT4 dataset, now at last updated to the end of 2021, shows no global warming for almost eight years! I think that this observed pause (Fig.1) is significant and I would have thought that it should be celebrated. It means that the projections by the IPCC of the warming of earth of 1.3K for the period 1991 to 2030 could be grossly overestimated.
[IPCC (1990, p. xxiv) confidently predicted 1.8 K global mean anthropogenic warming from 1850-2030, of which 0.5K had occurred by 1990 (Morice et al 2021)]
I wonder why the climate activists and the mass media are all quiet about this good news? With these results in mind, should we really place the progress of mankind in the balance by spending more money on the The Green Illusion | Bread on the water?
