Simon Writes About REAL2012


As you know, my husband is going to (legitimately) be part of REAL this year, as he is speaking during one of the Saturday sessions. It's going to be great to have him , and I know that he has a powerful message for us!
He has written a brilliant post about REAL 2012 here
...for those of you who know that you're coming, but you haven't got round yet to booking a place, what are you waiting for? Book in today, and invite a friend along too!
Please come and talk to me or Sue Ranger if the finances are a struggle or a stretch for you.
As Simon says, we don't want finances to hold you back from attending REAL.
Perhaps you paid way back last July, or God has blessed you with some finances that you could use  in turn to bless other women. If that's you, remember we are also looking for women to sponsor other women, in particular the wonderful single mums in Kerith. You can sponsor another woman online or in person - why not come and see us at Kerith reception between services on a Sunday? 
Lastly, teenagers have a special half price discount (not available online - please see Sue Ranger in person at LIFE or via Kerith reception).
Whatever age you are, whatever stage of life, whatever your circumstances,please don't let the finances stand in the way of you being blessed! As Lee said on Sunday, "we're family!"

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…
