Restful days ....

This last weekend Gill and I travelled to Abersoch in Wales to stay with some very good friends of ours. Andi & David , Helen & Derek. 
What a restful and peaceful time it was with glorious weather to boot. . Lots of lovely memories packed into a couple of days. Thankful to God for all that he provides.

Gill and I did a little Christmas shopping this week. I saw this tree and wanted ours to be like it. Funnily enough she said no 😄😄

Where is your tree ( your life ) planted ?


Every day I sit in my study and look out on this tree. I have watched it through Spring and Summer and now Autumn. 
It's a healthy tree , well planted and nourished. 
Like this tree our mental and spiritual health is dependant on where our roots are planted. 
You will only ever flourish in life if your roots are planted in the one who gave you life. 
Jesus Christ feeds the soul. Plant your roots into Him today. 🙏🏻🙏🏻😇

Bonfire tradition

Had a little firework display in the back garden. Laura as usual kept her distance. 😄 but she enjoyed the sparklers.  

Missed the rest of the family though. X

A message of mission.

This week I have spent some time at the FIEC conference in Hemsby Norfolk with a few of the leaders from Bethel. ( Josh, Andy, Derek &Don ) 

The theme was evangelism. A great week of thought provoking stuff. 

Going to spend some time processing in my mind and heart all that was said. This will ultimately lead to action as we don't merely listen to the word of  God we do what it says. James 1:22.
