‘An Eternal Perspective’

The whole world is changing – our lives as we have always known them are changing. As more and more restrictions are put upon us – as we face difficulties and challenges in our social – financial and emotional lives we find that so often our perspective on life changes too. We have to make…

‘Is This For Real’

“Is this for real?” – these were the words uttered by one of our grandsons – when he woke up early one morning last week – to the news that his mum had died. Although she had been ill we were all left reeling in shock and with that same feeling of ‘unreality.’ As I…

‘He Unravels My jumbled Thoughts’

The other day a dear friend sent me this message – ‘Jesus is good at puzzling out our thoughts and working out what we really want to say to Him’. She also sent an accompanying picture – of ‘a jumbled prayer’ – I really love it as it sums up where I sense we’re all…

‘Praise Where Praise Is Due’

As I sit this morning I am full of thankfulness for what God has done and is doing – and I realised that what I really needed to do was to – ‘give praise where praise was due’ – and to publicly do that here on my blog. I do hope that you will all…

‘Surrounded’

The word ‘surrounded’ has been with me during the past few days – it describes how I feel during this difficult time for our family. We have been ‘surrounded’ so strongly by the closeness of God – knowing – and feeling His arms around us – strengthening us – loving us – giving us peace….

‘Walking the Walk’

It’s easy to ‘talk the talk’ – yet so important that we ‘walk the walk’. Most of us who have a faith can ‘talk the talk’ – quote verses from scripture – sing the songs – and definitely believe what we are saying. I’m not just talking about what we say to other people –…

‘Be Still My Soul’

The words I found going round in my mind this morning were ‘Be still and know that I am God’. These words I recognised from a song – sung a long long time ago and also as the words from a psalm. My first thoughts were of the need to quiet ourselves among the business…

‘I can’t Fix This’

Over the past couple of weeks – we have only just been managing to get our laundry done – the washing machine had developed a fault and we had been trying to get around it in order to get the washing cycle to complete its process. By switching the program off and waiting for varied…
