Spring Sunshine

I have had a chance to sit in the garden today reading . It's great to be able to enjoy the fresh air . Springtime has got to be my favourite time of the year ... It's full to the brim of new beginnings .

Sunday at WBC was great , both services blessed by a real sense of God being amongst his people . If you get a chance to listen to the messages then you can download them from the Web ..the link is over on the right of my page .

I had an email from a lady in Kentucky ( USA) who had been listening to one of my sermons , she said she loved my Scottish accent :-) . I will have to start wearing a kilt in the pulpit from now on !

Missing her ..

Well Gill has been away for a whole week now and I have to admit that I am really missing her :-) . Roll on Sunday . The girls have been great though and surprisingly grumpy old dad has been remarkably placid this week .Gill had anticipated that world war three would break out whilst she was away but no , peace reigns .... anyway I'm off to do some vacuum cleaning now :-)..
