You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Carrickfergus

Have you heard the song called Carrickfergus? Charlotte Church sings it and I have had it on my iTunes app for a long time. I really like the song. Why am I mentioning this? I noticed a few days ago that we had a visitor here on this blog from Carrickfergus. Occasionally I like to look at the widget near the bottom of the sidebar to see where people are coming from. I see there are people from all over the world. I also like to look at the world globe at the very bottom and see the little red dots indicating where hits are coming from. Back to Carrickfergus, I didn't really know that such a place existed. I thought it might be a fantasy fictitious place. I'm glad it's real. If you are from there or if you've been there and you are reading this, I hope you will comment about it.

  1. Blessings, Charlotte - hope this finds you well! I shall have to look up that Irish town - such an amazing language. How is it pronounced? If it has thatched roof cottages surrounded by lots of green - I'm there!
    Joy!

  3. I am also intrigued by this place. It sounds so idyllic! I was reminded of one of my husband's favorite "Twilight Zone" episodes - about a town called Willoughby. It is the perfect town, where everyone is friendly, and there is total peace.

    Sounds a bit like our future in eternity, doesn't it?!

    GOD BLESS!

  4. Well I think it might have been me. The visitor that was linked as being from Carrickfergus. I am from Northern Ireland and I usually link up each week and I know that one time I was on someone's blog it said I was from Carrickfergus and another time on a blog it said I was from Craigavon. I am really in the lovely Northern Ireland town of Banbridge which is 30mins south of Belfast, 20mins East of Craigavon and over an hour from Carrickfergus which is actually famous for it's beautiful castle and coastland. Today the location thingy is saying that I am from Northampton which is in England so unfortunately it is not very accurate although at least it has me from the right country the UK.

  5. Oh how fun! Reminds me of the Beach Boys song - Kokomo - I always thought THAT was a made up place. Turns out it is a real city in Indiana. :)

    And how fun to meet Sandra from so far away, yet so close thanks to the internet.

    Have a lovely week y'all :)

    1. I love that song Kokomo, Kaye. I hadn't thought about whether it was a real place or not. The Beach Boys have so many good songs. Yes, the internet has sure "shrunk" the earth.

  6. I'll have to check out that song. I laughed when I read Kaye's comment. I live close to Kokoma and my niece lives there. You have to wonder who named their towns. Thank you again, Charlotte, for hosting this party. ~Pamela

  7. As a child I remember songs with tongue twister words that intrigued me. That place was a tongue twister for sure and a real place to boot.

  8. I am heading over to find the song. I am a long time Charlotte Church fan. Her voice is surely a God given gift to all of us.

    Thank you, Charlotte. I hope all have a great week.
