All together again ... Probably the last time .

It was great to spend time with Gill and the girls . It is not often that we find ourselves back to how we were for many years just the five of us. 

It was nice and will probably never be repeated now with Anna about to give birth to our first grandchild. 

Old memories being given over to new memories ... Exciting times ahead. 

I am looking forward to being a grandad :-)

Old Friends.

Good to meet up with these two muppets the other day. 

Shared lives for many years now. They are a blessing.

A quick trip to France.

Last Saturday we flew out to the Midi-Pyranees region of France . To stay with our greatest of friends Paul And Ali. 

Three days and nights of French culture , good conversation , much laughter , great food and plenty of peace. 

Times such as these allow you to recharge and think. 

Grateful for this short break.

We never stop learning.

Life is a gift. A beautiful gift that we unwrap every moment of every day. Sometimes we unwrap sad painful layers and other times joy and peace and hope. 

A life that teaches us every time we unwrap its paper. When we reach the final piece of paper the final gift will be overwhelmingly beautiful. 

We will see him as he is. Jesus Christ , the Lord of life and saviour of mankind. 

So much to look forward to. 

In life and in death. 

Motivated to do .... To live ...To love

Whilst struggling with the sniffles I spent some time listening to some motivational speakers. 

The principles they give to us have many parallels in the word of God. ( interesting and worth spending some time on these last couple of days ) 

Man Flu .... It's real :)

The last few days have been challenging ... Sniff, cough, splutter moan to Gill :-) 

Glad to report though that today is a better day. 

Even gladder to report that Gill and I are off to France for a few nights tomorrow . 

Good friends , good food ... Good times ...memories made...  Au revoir 😄🇫🇷
