  • No bargain basement in God

    No bargain basement in God

    This period after Christmas is a good time to hopefully find a bargain in the sales. I did a bit of on line shopping myself yesterday. This is unusual for me as I really, really don’t like shopping (it’s up there with going to the dentist) but I do like to find a bargain. I […]

  • Outrageous Grace..

    Outrageous Grace..

    We celebrate today the most beauteous and precious gift given freely to mankind which came to us in such humble form. Undeserving as we are to the mercy and love of God, He did not leave us in our wretched state, but God chose to come to us, Immanuel and we are so grateful and […]

  • Awe and Wonder…

    Awe and Wonder…

    This time last year my talk at church was about “Christmas Means”. I had chosen as my theme: “Emmanuel which means God with us.” “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”Matthew 1:23 “Therefore the Lord himself will give […]

  • Persecution..

    “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you”. Matthew 5 11-12 These bible verses are the verses for today on […]

    1 Thessalonians 3 v 12-13 says “and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all; just as we do to you so that He (God) may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all […]

  • In Green Pastures

    In Green Pastures

    I was searching on my bookcase yesterday for a book by C S Lewis. I know I have it but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I have probably either lent it to someone or put it elsewhere. I easily lose track of my books and am also a bit of a magpie. I did find […]

  • Overwhelmed….

    Overwhelmed….

    I woke in the early hours with thoughts racing through my mind of all the tasks I had not done and were overdue. As I went through them one by one I started to feel overwhelmed and stressed. The more I thought about them all, the more overwhelmed I felt. Stress was building and I […]

  • Letting Go…Testimony Tuesday (Update)

    The wanderer has returned! You may recall my post about my youngest daughter (who set off for over 5 months on a solo back pack to the Far East) and my thoughts in Letting go…#TestimonyTuesday. Now she is back……but not for long. She heads off on her next adventure to university in Newcastle Upon Tyne, […]

  • The Invite

    The Invite

    It’s exciting to receive an invitation especially to a celebration. I have received an invitation recently to attend a party..there is free food, drink, a great venue in Birmingham but it’s only for volunteers of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. The thing is after working 8 shifts (some very early ones), getting home late, travelling, working […]
