A Walk


Wednesday
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary today (I'll try and put a 1989 photo up soon for your amusement!) with a great day out . We did a 10 mile circular walk around the Thames - one of those walks in a book - including a lovely meal in a pub.
So brilliant to spend time together just walking and chatting.
I took my camera too. Simon was very tolerant when we came upon a graveyard - one of my favourite places to visit and photograph - I just love the images and all those stories!

"We must learn to be as open about our failures as we are about our successes. Without this kind of honesty, we create a false image that causes others to needlessly struggle" T D Jakes
Ever since I read this quote a month or so ago, it feels like God keeps reminding me of it and I just need to keep letting it sink in. I know it's true, but what it actually practically means is another thing.

Hi Catrina. Happy anniversary.
That quote is excellent, and I know that it is my failures that have been my greatest assets because without them I would have little need of God.

I also know that being vulnerable and sharing how the grace of God has redeemed and rescued me is an irresistable love story where Jesus takes centre stage.

That graveyard is the leveller. No riches, no power, no beauty, no story just bones under soil. Today I choose to speak of that dependence on God before the silence of death takes my voice away.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

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 …
