Refine


Lent Challenge - "Refine" I thought today I would share a song with you that I learned a couple of years ago which speaks to me on different levels each time I hear or sing it.

Fear


Lent Challenge - "Fear" “There is nothing to fear but fear itself”, or so says Franklin D Roosevelt. Now, I don’t know about you, but I think that he must have been very lucky in his life if he thought that fear was something ephemeral, shadowy and insubstantial to the extent that he could dismiss...

Sacrifice


Lent Challenge - "Sacrifice" What is a sacrifice? And what it does it mean to the one who is doing the sacrificing? The dictionary defines sacrifice as "give up (something valued) for the sake of other considerations" as one way of looking at it, and as this is a Lent challenge, I think that is the...

Daybook Entry – 5th March 2017


For Today 5th March. I am following a Lent Challenge from the Bible Society, which doesn't have a prompt for Sundays (Sundays are not counted part of Lent) and so I'm doing a Daybook entry instead.

Here's what we prayed: Coal - small, dirty,... Continue Reading →

Daybook Entry – New Year’s Eve 2016


For Today... the last day of 2016 Outside my window... I can hear some isolated bursts of fireworks going off locally. The weather is mild to cold but not frosty yet. I am thinking... about some changes I need to make in myself, my outlook, my worldview and my expectations. I am thankful... for so,... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving


In the spirit of Thanksgiving in the US today, I thought I would share with you a list of things I am thankful for in my life just now: The roof over my head. Yes, we owe more on the mortgage now than when we took it out 18 years ago, and yes there are... Continue Reading →
