‘The Source Of My Strength’

Dinner was almost ready – but as I reached into the oven to check if all was done – I felt a painful twinge in my upper arm. Standing up quickly I felt at my arm to discover a strange bulge! – and felt extreme pain. With help – dinner was served and eaten –…

‘Navigation’

Yesterday – travelling to places we had been to before – we decided not to bother connecting to the navigation app. When ‘navigation systems’ first came out years ago I hated them – I simply couldn’t cope with listening to an abstract voice telling me when and where to turn – I much preferred planning…

‘Let It Overflow’

I’d been conscious of the sound of rain drumming on the window all through the night – rising in the morning to a dark and very wet day. My thoughts turned to those who had – for one reason or another – been in the unfortunate position of having to sleep outside – in the…

‘Leaving a trail’

As the sun was rising yesterday the sky was full of the trails of planes criss crossing overhead – made almost golden by the suns rays – evoking memories of trips to far flung places – of people – of rich life experiences we have been so priveledged to enjoy.   As I allowed my…

‘Open The Door’

  I know I say it often – but – my favourite time of the day has to be the early morning – I simply love watching the dawn break. However – at this time of the year – it’s still so very dark when I go to sit by my  window. The first thing…

In the midst of a week of sadness – seeking to come to terms with the sudden loss of my lovely sister – I have been so thankful for a God Who is truly present with me – Who cares for me and cares about what happens in my life. He is the One that…

‘Telling The Story’

This week we had the privilege of telling part of our ‘story’ – the years we spent with Mercy Ships – taking hope and healing to the west coast of Africa – on both the Anastasis and the Africa Mercy. They were great years – full of ups and downs – so many memories –…

‘Wear Your Crown’

The other day I was blessed to be a part of a session aimed to help a group of ladies to improve their self image and confidence – I dedicate this blog to the wonderful lady who took the session – ‘thankyou Alison – you wear your crown well’ The session included – ‘knowing who…

‘Leave it There’

My heart was heavy today – full of sorrow – a heaviness was descending on  me – so – I did the only thing that I could do – I went to my ‘quiet place’ and shared it all with the One Who has promised – not only to walk with me through these times – but…

‘The Fog Will Lift’

One thing I enjoy about early mornings at this time of year is the freshness in the air – bringing with it that sense of the beginning of a new season. The other morning really typified an Autumn morning for me – the thickened mist of the past few mornings – creating a fog that almost obliterated the…
