I exploded a little when I discovered that my blog is being coped through RSS, and being passed off by another site.
Inspiration: Luke 15:11-32 and Prodigal God, by Timothy Keller I think I’m missing something; seriously. My Facebook post yesterday was "Has lost 'Joy' somewhere between duvet and workplace?? If you see him...please redirect to me, here 🙂 Thanks x" And, reading back my post from this afternoon has made me realise that the joy is … Continue reading Joy
Will I ever learn to be as gracious?
Alcohol is a funny thing. It’s like an annoying friend. You know the type; you get on hilariously with them and have had some rib achingly good times together. But there’s that selfish streak about them that you’re not keen on. They always have to have their pennies worth, sometimes to the detriment of you. … Continue reading Alcohol is a funny thing…
My boss was reduced to tears today because she got caught lying by her (on and off again) boyfriend. He’s dumped her. My mum always used to say a phrase if she ever suspected me of lying, “what a tangled web we weave when first we set out to deceive!” Come to think of it, … Continue reading Liar, Liar…
It's almost two months since our wedding, and after the chaos of organising, booking and a depleted bank account, you'd think we'd settle back into a life more ordinary.

Luke 12:22 - Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[a]? 26Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

Guiltily, those few are probably most in need of a friendly phone call; and I've purposely not called as i know the conversation will be stilted and leaning towards them venting their unlucky lot in life. … Continue reading Love Thy Neighbour
So..Fellowship Groups started again this Tuesday for the Autumn/Winter season. We're reading 1 Samuel - and so far so good! I'm trying to understand Hannah, and what sort of belief/faith it takes for you to continuously ask God for something for half your life, and still love God - even when you don't receive. And … Continue reading Why Can’t I Pray?
I had a dream last night about the poetry events i'm working on for Michael Horovitz and Alexander De Cadenet. In it, i was was making calls, and sending email after email to journalists with a growing sense of apprehension. Weird dreams..the spot that's erupted on my cheek this morning...i must be stressed! And this … Continue reading A Little Stressed? Are You KIDDING Me?!
