It’s been a while…

Last night I tried to upload a countdown clock into my blog – dismal failure on my part! The truth is, I am getting just a tiny bit excited, for John and I will be celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary in 23 days’ time. Well, I say celebrate… In the climate of the Coronavirus pandemic,…

The last week…

“ A week is a long time in politics” ( Harold Wilson, Prime Minister of Great Britain, approx 1963) By any reference point you choose, this has been an extraordinary week here in the UK.  From government suggestions and guidelines right through to orders to close all places people would normally meet and gather this…

Listening Well

  Not posted in a while, as the last few months have been exceptionally difficult. My lovely mum has had not one but two major falls, the first one resulting in a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain, the second one onto exactly the same place on the back of her head, under highly…

Conversations with my hubby…

  I have wonderful conversations with my husband. He is the most generous man – actually happy to take turns in listening and speaking. We had been discussing today a TEDTalk – there are many really interesting TED talk videos online, but this one caught our imagination . It is about Paula Stone Williams, a…

Deity limited

I wonder just when Jesus realized that as he wriggled his infant fingers, that he had placed stars in the sky? By the age of 12, He knew exactly who He was. It was an unfathomable act of surrender, to confine Himself to the earthly limitations of a human body. Most concepts of godhood previous…
