More of the black Asphalt and less of the green Grass.

This stage of the Wicklow Way ( 16 and 16b)  can be done in one walk. To reduce the efford, the previous walk should be increased to finish closer to the entrance to Moylisha woods.
For the most part the walk is along paved roads and lanes.
============================

Across the Woodlands of Moylisha and Newry,
along roads and lanes to Clonegal

I combined the two walks and found the journey very strenuous (on my hands and knees for the last 100 ft) but I started from Aghowle. There is an ascent of 100 metres and a descent of the same value with ups and downs along all of the route. Values are approximate. The return is along a same route for most of the journey.

The climb was not too strenuous but the scenery was not spectacular if you could see it through the blanket of trees. Nevertheless the sound of traffic was not heard and the birds song brightened up my spirits.

The Home Run
Leaving the woodlands the rest of the journey to Clonegal is along the black asphalt of the lanes and roads. The entrance to the gravel road leading to the Newry woodlands is where I left the car. Thee was very limited places to park on this route.

The scenery was not spectacular and there was continually showers of rain. I had “bitten off more then I could chew” and my legs and feet were extremely sore. Added to this was the prospect of having to return to the car.

I had planed to stop and ask a stranger to take my photograph by a shower of rain stopped me from doing this. That shower of rain has stopped you from seeing my face.

The Storyline of the Bible 30/30

The Return of the King

The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever." Revelations 11: 15
The Bible closes with a promise and a payer.
In the book of Revelations chapter 22 verse 20 we read the promise “Yes I am coming soon” - and then the prayer – Amen. Come Lord Jesus.
In fact there are over 300 references to the return of Jesus Christ in the New Testament. He is reigning unseen now, but will come again to this Earth to reign in glory and splendour.

Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God appears on earth to reign.

Every eye shall now behold Him
Robed in dreadful majesty;
Those who set at naught and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

Every island, sea, and mountain,
Heav’n and earth, shall flee away;
All who hate Him must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day:
Come to judgement! Come to judgement!
Come to judgement! Come to judgement!
Come away!

Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear;
All His saints, by man rejected,
Now shall meet Him in the air:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
See the day of God appear!

Charles Wesley
