and overleaf… When tomorrow comes today will be gone forever. I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it. (Ruth Spearing) I’ve had such a time of anxiety this past fortnight visualizing what could happen during a pending medical procedure I’m waiting for that I felt in need of spiritual support. IContinue reading “A Gratitude Reminder”

Find Rest in Holy Week
I’ve been missing in action on my blog for three months. I’ve not been lost for words. I’ve had too many. Having too much to say is as painful as having nothing to say. Words and stories have been buzzing in my head along with the happenings of life; some sad, some happy, yet interestingContinue reading “Find Rest in Holy Week”
How Did I End Up Here?
Since hitting a major birthday milestone 7 weeks ago, time seems to have been flying by at the speed of light and I’ve arrived in the New Year with my feet having barely touched the ground. Already, I’m bored with the tedious reminders of aging that are constantly bombarding me – or is it thatContinue reading “How Did I End Up Here?”
Too Early For This?
You may think it’s far too early to hold a Christmas Carol Service on 4th December but think again. Have you seen how busy the high street is already in the run-up towards Christmas? And it’s not even December yet? We’ve had cards on display since the end of September, Christmas songs in the shopsContinue reading “Too Early For This?”
LET’S TALK ABOUT DEATH…
I’ve been contemplating the subject of death for a while now as I’m not getting any younger (surprise, surprise!) and took the plunge to buy two funeral plans for me and hubby. This has done nothing to give me peace of mind as it’s resulted in sleepless nights worrying about how I’ll manage the monthlyContinue reading “LET’S TALK ABOUT DEATH…”
IS LOVE REALLY ALL WE NEED?
Okay, so I’ve failed to write in my personal journal since 25th May when I was busy packing my glad rags into my suitcase for a long-awaited visit to see our son in Prague on 27th. I had been filled with trepidation about the chaos reported at UK airports but needn’t have worried because, priorContinue reading “IS LOVE REALLY ALL WE NEED?”
JUXTAPOSE; JOY & SADNESS
There will always be a time for mourning and a time for dancing. Acknowledgement It’s difficult to put out a new blog post without thinking how trivial the content may be when weighed against the effects of what’s happening to the Ukrainian people; the horror of it being felt by all who are witnessing itContinue reading “JUXTAPOSE; JOY & SADNESS”
We’re coming to the end of January and what a month it’s been for me on my personal journey. So much has happened (is still happening) this month in response to my vision board for 2022 (with compilation still in progress) that it’s hard to choose a starting point to write from. Therefore, I’ll startContinue reading “HAPPY ENDINGS”
VISION FOR THE NEW YEAR
I’ve said it every year for the past 10 years (if not more) and every year, as New Year’s Eve approaches, I’m back in the cycle of clearing my clutter. I do take drastic action on it but always end up in the same place by the end of the following year. This year IContinue reading “VISION FOR THE NEW YEAR”
CELEBRATING THE LIGHT
I was watching an old episode of Poirot recently and marvelling at the conviction of David Suchet’s portrayal of a character he has made his own. I’ve often wondered if David is a Christian because of some of the things he utters as Poirot. I haven’t read the books by Dame Agatha Christie but IContinue reading “CELEBRATING THE LIGHT”
