Christmas ... Begins again

The season of advent for me is a season of great joy.Not the joy of shopping or the joy of too much turkey and mince pies but the joy of knowing that the King of Glory came down and dwelt among us. 

The one who was so rich with all the blessings of heaven that he gladly left behind to become poor and dwell amongst us ... He came to show us the way. ... So look to Him this advent season and not to what you have or don't have and know the real joy of Christmas ... Jesus Christ our Lord our Saviour .

Now a new chapter begins with a new community of believers at Bethel Green lane. 

Trusting every day to Him , knowing that I walk in his peace as he marks out the way ahead for me and my family and our new church family

Katie begins a new chapter ....

A couple of Saturdays ago  was the day when Katie began her new adventure in Loughton Essex. Her new job with Yummy Jobs in Epping has led to her southern migration ! 

Sad to see her finally fly the nest but trusting that The Lord has lots of good things in store for her down there. 

Silence ....

In our lives we have lots of noise .... TV , Radio , Facebook, Twitter, snapchat ... It is becoming harder and harder to sit in silence before The Lord and to know his peace. 

I am always fascinated by the account of the building of the temple by Solomon. All the stones where placed one on top of the other in complete silence. The presence of God causes us to marvel and wonder and worship in silence. 

1 Kings 6:7
" When the house was built, it was with stone prepared at the quarry, so that neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron was heard in the house while it was being built."

Sweet and Sweat :) !!!

Because of this .......

We need to do this .....:)

God's way is ALWAYS right.

The wisdom from heaven if heeded would cause us not to fuel the fires of gossip . Don't talk about someone behind their back. Even if you have been wronged. Instead give them to God in prayer . He is the one we should talk to. So stop putting the wood on your fire today and watch how the peace of God works.

Philippians 4 .... Over mint Tea ... Rejoice in The Lord always and again I say rejoice

Sometimes when I spend time in The Word with pen and moleskine to hand the sense of His presence is palpable. " The Lord is at Hand " 

Grace and Grasmere

Thankful for good friends and great places. All of which are supplied by the grace of God. Grasmere with Paul and Ali ... Another great set of memories. 

More Wem Carnival the Flinstones :)

Phil has a knack of persuading me to do the unusual when it comes to serving The Lord. This time we dressed up for the carnival whilst a team of folk handed out good news to all who would take a leaflet. 

Great day and our float won second prize. Well done Tee.
