So Much to Say!

Oh my word - so much to say and so little time!

Firstly it was a FAB weekend in Church! Adrian Holloway was just brilliant (and I'm not just saying that because he reads this blog :))
Ok is it just me? I'm a little bit cynical , a bit sceptical ...I really do believe that God heals today. I do believe that "the same power that conquers the grave lives in me". What helps me to embrace that, and believe it, and pray for it is great men like Adrian. His calm manner reassured me - no "whipping up the crowds", it was all "normal" and that was just great. Faith rose in our hearts and there was expectancy and belief. God did indeed heal people - and save people and it was wonderful to play even a small part in praying for  the many people who responded on Sunday. He'll be back at the Kerith on 19th December, so prepare to invite your friends again!

Then (trauma) I lost the dog yesterday :(
Thankfully I also got him back, but that 20 minutes of running (in heels) through Lily Hill Park was very traumatic. Ok here's the sad bit - I even cried.
Also, Simon had barely arrived at Heathrow for his flight to Albania, and I'd already lost the dog - it was looking like it was going to be a thoroughly rubbish week!
Thankfully it was ok - I did that typical mum thing and was so relieved to have Nemo back...and yet so cross with him for not coming when I had been calling and was so worried! All's forgiven now though - and he has a new name tag on his collar too...just in case! And today's been a good day with no disasters.

Simon just phoned from Albania, he's having a great time with Andy, Ken and Ann. Catch up with all the news at Ken and Ann's blog . They've had a very good day with Robert and Mira. Simon has no internet connection, so I imagine he's finding that rather challenging!!!

So, lastly, NEWS FLASH.......
.....REAL CONFERENCE EARLYBIRD RATE EXTENDED UNTIL MAY 17TH......
yes we've extended the earlybird period for two weeks. Primarily this is beacause we just don't feel we've told enough women about it yet. It's also because we're women and we can change our minds and that's ok :)
So please come and book into the conference - it's going to be a fantastic time spent together and with God. A chance to have a day of no responsibilites. A chance to perhaps be a bit out of your comfort zone. A chance to do something for yourself.
And if you're all booked in , can you be our voices - can you tell other women in our community and in other Churches all about the conference? There are plenty of invites to use, available at the Kerith reception. We've booked in about 80 women so far, with an additional 8 places being sponsored (thank youxxx). I'd love us to reach the 150 mark by the end of Sunday.

Hey, thanks for reading to the end - be blessed
Love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. I Peter 4:8
Amen!
More tomorrow x

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…

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…
