It's a Beautiful Day

Wow wow wow! We had a great time on Saturday didn't we?
Mamma Mia was such fun - I seriously loved singing along -and especially Dancing Queen at the end, when all us girls were up and dancing!
So, thanks for coming along, for bringing your friends and for singing along! Well done too to those brave girls who sang and danced on the stage - and not a drop of alcohol was needed! Great to see women of all ages together just enjoying each others company and having fun together. Thanks too to all those involved in the planning and behind the scenes - we couldn't have done it without you!

Everyone who came to Mamma Mia took away an invitation to Real - the Unique Conference on 3rd July. The beautiful invites are available at the Kerith reception - I'll be handing them out to women at Church on Sunday too. Thanks to the women who have encouraged us greatly by registering already :) It's £20 if you register before May 3rd. So let's get talking about it - inviting others - and registering!  

Lastly, just a reminder that today's the final day for completing the Reveal survey. If (mmm...like me!) you still haven't got round to doing it, then please find some time today . So whether you are "part of the furniture" at Kerith, if you call it your home, or if you've just started coming, your voice and opinion is needed!
Thanks :) You can take part in the survey by following this link from the Kerith website.

Whatever you're doing, and  wherever you are today, enjoy this beautiful day - God's gift to us.
"God's amazing grace be with you! God's robust peace!" 1 Thess 1 v 1

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…
