Mid term break

We returned on Friday from 5 days in rural Perthshire. It was beautiful.

- the wee boy learned to ride his bike and managed a fair distance to the village (as he can't do the brakes yet this included squealing at high volumes when minor hills were traversed)
- laughing, chatting and sharing food with our good friends D and M, who now pastor a Baptist Church near where we were staying
- spending lots of time with a lovely family from our new church who were staying next door to us
- swimming every day
- not getting up before 9am every day
- plenty of time to think, pray, talk and reflect - particularly about our future with regard to housing

Thanks Father for holidays and friends.

  3. Glad to hear you had a good time - and I certainly recognize the locations of your photos!

    So you know D&M then? Ah, 'tis indeed a small world... my wife shared a flat with M's younger sister at Uni. She was here with her family staying with us last week!

  4. My blog has a post specially for you and other children's workers! What is said there is true, kind and necessary - shalom and hunners of blessings!

  5. Just made me laugh thinking of the boy racing away brakeless. Bless him!

  6. Jim - thank you! I am very touched and I love your post. Have left a comment.

    WSG, thanks for your comment. yes, he was headstrong and rather squealy. Think pig squeals and a blue blur and that was him. I tried to get you on phone today and yesterday. Thinking of you and missing you loads xx


In the words of Mrs Doyle in Father Ted, go on, go on, go on........

Leave me a wee message! Only rules - is it true, is it kind, is it necessary?
