My 46th!

Thank you so much for all the lovely Birthday wishes, cards and gifts yesterday - I was really spoilt! It was fun having a birthday on a Sunday - right from the onset when I was sung to by the car-parkers at 8am! You're never too old for a birthday cake - My beautiful mum has made me a cake with strawberries and cream each birthday for over the last thirty years -here's this year's - guess I ought to share?! 


Yesterday at Church was phenomenal - the preaching by our 10 preachers was to say the least deeply humbling. Together with the worship, there was such a powerful sense of God's presence - offering hope and strength to each one of us for today, tomorrow, this week - for our individual lives and circumstances. Love this worship song - The Lord is my Rock - it's one of my "on repeat" ones . Listen to it enough times, that as you sing along and get the lyrics inside you,  you really start to believe it, and declare God's truth over your life. Today I'm 46 - and I want to declare it over my life - this is who I am, this is my faith, this is my God.

When the waters rise, my hope is sure
When life falls apart I stand secure
When my way is dark, Your light breaks through
When I don't feel You near,
Your Word is true

Jesus Your love surrounds me
You're holding my life, holding my life
The Lord is my rock and I won't be afraid
I won't be afraid, You're with me

You carry us
Your rise above
You lift us up

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…
