    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 […]

    The Eagle has hopefully..

    Landed on a refreshed web page! As it’s the Christmas holidays and I’m off work, I decided yesterday to give my WordPress site a long overdue refresh. I’m not that technical (as many of you know from my clumsy efforts and blogging mishaps) so there are a few tweaks still needed but overall, I’m happy […]

  • 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 […]

    Christmas “cat”astrophe…

    Last year our Christmas Eve was interrupted by our cat being a bit too inquisitive. This year she has also found the Christmas presents under the tree and I took this photo of her last night looking like she was planning more mischief. It reminded me of last year. It didn’t put the neighbours off…There […]

    ‘Tis the Season for”..

    The glory of God revealed on earth. “Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said […]

    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 […]

    Come and See…

    The infant lying in His mother’s arms,The Shepherds bowing at His feet,Strange visitors from another place,bringing precious gifts and treasures.Come and see,The son answering a mother’s request,Water into wine,The multiplied bread and fish,To feed the hungry,The opening of eyes blind from birth,To see Mercy’s face.Come and see,The man leaping, dancing, praising,Rescued from a bed of […]

    The Wind…

    The wind blows where it wishes. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:7-8 There […]

    The Invitation – Pass it on

    The Holy Spirit brought these words to my remembrance this morning. “The Invitation – Pass it on”. I recalled those words as being the title to a post I had written some years ago. I searched my archives and eventually I found it. It was 4 years ago that I had written these words in […]
