Waiting...eyes on the Lord. He has every detail under control.
April and still grappling with the New Year's resolution on contentment...
BB set in again...

Get some good stuff from The Village Church. Found this a very challenging article about the power of words. Read online at http://fm.thevillagechurch.net/blog/pastors/
Sorry guys, missed a few of the Friday updates from Pastor Chandler. If you scroll half way down the page you can catch up on how he's been doing the last few weeks.

I enjoyed spending time with one of my small friends yesterday. The world through the eyes of a 5 year old is such an exciting place. Everything is fresh and new. We shouldn't lose that enjoyment of life when we grow up but so easy to get bogged down by all the responsibilites of adulthood that we forget to look and enjoy the small things.
You meet some pretty amazing people as you journey through life and find yourself in different circumstances. Some people have such interesting stories to tell of their experiences, often tough and heart breaking yet showing amazing strength of character to have made it through "against all odds." Ain't life just great sometimes.
I am going to watch Preston North End next weekend. Going with a couple of lifelong fans so will need to be on best behaviour. Sensitive to their emotional fragility if PNE lose. Better stop there before I way something I later regret!!!
Calling all redheads...a disturbing fact I discovered in an article I read yesterday:

Redheads have on average around 80,000 hairs while those with blonde hair have almost 120,000 hairs.

So if your hair is of the "auburn" variety you should hold on to your hair carefully. Each strand is special.
The brain is a very complex organ. We talk about the mind when we want to classify the outworking of our thoughts in our emotions. But that is where there has to be a divide of the sexes. Men, on the whole, tend to be a lot more logical and analytical and are more reticent to vocalise how they feel. Woman, on the other hand, are a cocktail of emotions, hormones and, if you find them at the wrong time of the month, can seem like a rollercoaster of irrational feelings every time they open their mouth!

I sometimes think God must have had a sense of humour when he decided on the instiution of marriage. Yet, what a delight to see an old married couple still head over heals after 40 years together.
Read this and found it very comforting:

STEP BY STEP
He does not lead me year by year
Nor even day by day
But step by step my path unfolds
My Lord directs my way.

Tomorrow's plans I do not know
I only know this minute
But He will say, "This is the way,
By faith now walk ye in it."

What is the biggest agnst of being a bridesmaid so far....predicting what dress size you'll be in a few months time. Very thankful I still have gym membership......we're going to get much better acquainted over the next few months!
What is the first thing you think about when you wake up? How about the one who created you, sustains you and who is worthy of every bit of your life especially your best.
You know what the best thing about sunshine is? Being able to wear sunglasses...love them!
I am now the proud owner of a pink Ipod...the main thing is the colour. The music wouldn't play so well if it was blue. I am a girly girl at heart and my accessories have to be mainly pink or at least some strain of purple.
