ALTHOUGH there were no crowds at the test match this week, there was one pair of eyes which seemed to be constantly on the game.
I refer to Winston, the Cocker Spaniel dog belonging to one of the staff at the ground.
Every time the camera focused on him, his eyes seemed to be set on the play.
No doubt he was watching along with the few people there and the vast TV audience to see if Jimmy Anderson, the England fast bowler, could take his 600th test match wicket.
Unfortunately on Monday four of Jimmy’s teammates dropped catches off his bowling and he had to wait until Tuesday to achieve the milestone.
On Monday I am sure that the bowler had a few choice words to say to his teammates for letting him down, but all was well the next day.
We read in the New Testament that Jesus Christ’s disciples let him down on numerous occasions and he had to give them a talking to but it was always constructive criticism that he gave.
It is always good to have encouraging words spoken to us and when we turn to the Bible we can find so much that God wants to say to us.
In these very trying times it is good to turn to the Four Gospels and read the words of Jesus that are still so relevant to us in today’s world.
