I wanted to share a couple of Bible verses which are short yet remain always extremely important and helpful.
During her life on Earth, my mother’s many very precious gifts to me included two books about Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997), who was canonised as St. Teresa of Calcutta in 2016. The following image is one of my absolute favourites.
For me, the peacefulness and beauty that I also find in puzzles featuring Chess, Mathematics or gentle words, for example, make them all interesting and appealing, too.
A GOOD WORD PUZZLE
From the word GENTLE, remove two letters which are a standard abbreviation for ‘for example’. Use the remaining four letters to make a proper 4-letter English word which is timely now.
A BEAUTIFUL NUMBERS PUZZLE
To celebrate the birthday today of Natasha, a friend of mine, I offer this puzzle here in Blog Post #124: If I calculate the sum of Natasha’s new age now and her age n years ago, then multiply by n, the final result is 124.
What is Natasha’s age now, and what is the value of the whole number n?
A WONDERFUL CHESS PUZZLE FROM AUSTRIA ♥
A FUN MIND-READING PUZZLE!!

Which particular one holds the key to where the Musica Mundi School leaders and students have gone on a 4-day school trip?
Wishing everyone more peace and love,

P.S. = Puzzle Solutions!
- Remove e.g. from ‘gentle’ and rearrange the remaining letters to make LENT.
- n=2. Two years ago, Natasha was 30; today she’s 32. The unique solution is (32 + 30) x 2 = 124.
- The main line of the chess puzzle goes 1 Re3 b2 2 Bf5 gxf5 3 Rb5 Rxb5 4 Re6!! fxe6 5 g6 e1=Q 6 g7+ Kh7 7 g8=Q+Kh6 8 Qg7#, checkmate!
