Word and Worship

Thank you to all you lovely women who came out to Word and Worship on Saturday night!
It was so lovely to meet so many different women - and to chat, laugh, eat, drink, worship, pray and share truth together. What a privilege to meet together like that - time for each other and time for us and God.
Thanks so much to Lisa and the "Simply" team for organising the evening so brilliantly. Thanks too to the technical team and Eileen and the singers and band - wow it was wonderful to spend time worshipping the Lord together. Thanks too to all the willing helpers on the evening, the lovely smiley ladies who were there to help - I really appreciate you!
The truth is that the Holy Spirit will use all of us to speak God's love to others -it's in a smile, a word, a hug, a prayer - in a generous cup of coffee, a luxurious hot chocolate and a guiding car-parker!
It was my privilege to share a message from the Bible with you - all about Kind Words - the words that are relationship-makers (not breakers!). The message will soon be available as a podcast to listen to again, on the Kerith website .

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit speaks to each of us individually about our words - here are some of the scriptures I brought - why not take some time this week to look them up, meditate on them and ask God what He wants to say to you through them? They are life-bringers!
Much love x

When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
and she always says it kindly.     
Proverbs 31:26

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Ephesians 4:29

Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.
Colossians 4:6

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Oh LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.  
Psalm 19:14

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 …
