Here's a question for everyone of us - and one I find I need to answer every day, hour and minute as I make decisions and choices, and consider my motives.

What is it in life that gives us worth? Do we get our worth and value from the labels that we wear - busy? wealthy? young? people-pleaser? wise? mother? independent? ...?

Or do we get our worth from how God views us? Unique. Worth dying for. Priceless.

" Many women do noble things but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, beauty fleeting; but a women who fears the Lord is to be praised." Proverbs 31 v30

From one 'Perfect' (NOT!) woman to another, I'd like to say how much your sermon hit home on Sunday. It is so easy to HATE the woman from Proverbs 31, and only see where I fall short, when actually it is who God sees that is important. And He sees me as His child, His daughter, His princess - priceless. It is God in me that makes me so - there's nothing I can do to become more like Him except to allow Him to do His work in me. Sometimes it is hard to feel 'priceless' when 'worthless' or 'helpless' are more apt descriptions of how I'm really feeling. Thank you for the bookmark to help me remember that these 'feelings' are not the truth, that I really am 'Priceless'!

Well - having totally locked in to what you were saying on Sunday, I'm wondering what happened. It's Thursday. Tiredness has kicked in, kids have played up, work has been done and the rock solid assurance I had on Sunday that I really am priceless almost feels like a dim distant memory. I say almost. I guess what I'm locking horns with today is whether I'm going to believe the feelings or the truth. I swiped one of the 'priceless' labels - well someone left it on my chair. I need it. I know that in my cupboard under the stairs hands a label that reads 'priceless' and despite the fact that I feel about 1p, God's verdict is quite the opposite. So right now, the squishy feelings aren't here. The truth is. I'm going to trust that.

With you all the way Ali...when the emotions take over it's hard to remember those truths but that's what we're called to do...

Am really enjoying the 'All I need is Jesus and a good pair of Jeans' book great recommendation Catrina thankyou.

Worth a look for all those supergirls like me who struggle!!

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 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 slip over on the back door 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…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
