Sunday's Food

So when I've already slept for an uncomfortable hour on the sofa, and then finally make it up the stairs to my bed, and all of the cares and regrets and worries and "not done yet" items on my "to do list" are swirling around my head, THATS when I need to remember the food I received on Sunday. The tools I received on Sunday. The encouragement to put Jesus at the centre, and to turn my worries into prayers . So, miraculously, the song "Christ is enough" surfaced in my thinking - thank you Jesus - and got my perspective back. So here's a couple of great reminders in song and words written along that same (life giving) theme that's helped me this week - hope they help you too.

Christ is enough

About this video
"Christ Is Enough by Hillsong is new and featured on their upcoming album, Glorious Ruins. It is a song of devotion that celebrates Christ’s sufficiency for our lives. Often we fill our lives with busyness and surround ourselves with things that meet our own needs. But ultimately, as believers, we have to separate ourselves from those things and make sure we keep Christ at the center. We should find ourselves in a place where no matter what is taken away or given to us, Christ is our goal and is more than enough. That's when we really come alive. Not only is Christ sufficient, our sustainer, and our healer, but He is our Redeemer. The sacrifice of Himself, given for our sin, was enough to cover our sin, give us hope, and to reconcile us to God. This song can help focus your church on the death and resurrection of Christ and gives them an opportunity to respond by declaring that Christ is enough."

Hey Soul? You're so not alone: Life gets messy & your plans get scribbled over. Let's try: Erase every worry today with the perfect eraser of prayer. Prayer erases worries & you get the relief of needed white space. The happy miracle of it: It's impossible to pray & worry at the same time!

"Give all your worries & cares to God, for He cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7
The equation of a good day: Give your worries to God ---and He gives you peace.

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…
