Unique Action Morning

Just a quick entry as it's 8am Sunday morning and I should be getting ready for Church!

Thank you to all those women who took part in yesterday's Unique Action Morning.My prayer is that you were blessed as you came and blessed others. We had a great time together - the place was filled with chat and laughter. We gift-wrapped 100 gift bags and 70 toiletry sets (these are all going to be given to other women through Kerith in the community ) We also wrote 40 letters to women in Serenje, Zambia. The letters will bless and encourage other women - those who are living a very different life to ours. but are still women with families and jobs; hopes, needs and responsibilities just like us. More on the letters another time, but suffice to say that I was incredibly moved as I read them last night.
Thank you to all who worked hard to put the event on.
Must dash! x

it was a great morning and something I hope we'll do again. Although it's a busy time of year it's so important to take ourselves out of ourselves and focus on others. I feel so blessed at being involved in such a proactive church. More of the same please Catrina...you were fab last night by the way x

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident ...to slip over on the back door mat....in my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…
Well last week had some highs and lows.

Highs included Simon's birthday and my cast coming off - hoorah!

I'm now officially walking - although it often looks like shuffling! Great to have 2 feet back in use - if only for planting firmly into the ground so that I can make the bed or get something out of a cupboard. It's a huge help to have my hands free when I go up and down stairs too. I'm of course being a good girl with the exercises. No idea what people mean when they say "don't do too much" - I join in if I feel ok and work out afterwards if it was really ok and good to stretch myself, or "Too Much"! Anyhow, it's good to be feeling more like myself again. Apparently It's still a slow process of building up strength and flexibility, so I need to keep on being patient!

The low was that our 12 year old labrador died - Nemo was a big character, and a huge presence in our home - he really was one of the family. We all said goodbye, we all th…
