3 Words of Wisdom

Today we joined the local Gym...and celebrated by going to Starbucks for cappuccino and cake (yes, really)
Prior to the momentous "joining",  I turned the house, each drawer and every one of my bags out, searching for my Edge card. Eventually found it after we returned (it always happens like that doesn't it?!).
I find It really frustrating when I cant find things, and become totally "on a mission" about finding the lost item!
However, I did make a great discovery in one of the bags - as well as 50p, a lost lipstick and a few paperclips, I'd printed out a few lines from a blog earlier in the year, and kept it in my work bag. Such wise words, I'm going to pass them on!

3 Words of Wisdom:
Based on Proverbs 18:21-The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Words can create or destroy, they can build-up or tear-down.

1. Guard your heart against toxic words (Prov 4:23). We can’t control what other people say about us, but we can control what we believe.

2. Speak life-giving words to others every chance you get (Eph 4:29). Any time you think something good about someone else, say it.

3. Speak life-giving words to yourself and to your circumstances (Mark 11:23). We align our words with God’s truth-if His word says it, we say it
(Craig Groeschel, quoted on Holly Furtick's blog)

You joined the gym? Yay for you! And I love these fabulous words of wisdom, the tongu has monumentous power to both destroy and to build up...I have been on the receiving end of both (and certainly given out both too). I can confirm that the latter is life-transforming! A great one to consistently be reminded of. Thank you x

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 …
