Shopping, gassing, comfortable sofa, copious amounts of TV, a good curry and a gorgeous golden labrador. Mastercard will buy most things but the best things in life are absolutely priceless. Good friends; worth their weight in gold.
Sometimes when we stop looking for something we were searching for we find the thing we were looking for was actually there all along, staring us in the face...put your hope in God
Integrity: (Oxford definition)
1 the quality of being honest and morally upright
2 the state of being whole or unified
3 soundness of construction

Ouch, remember the word being used by Joel Beeke in his addresses at Aber last summer. What an ideal which we utterly fail to live up to, but should aspire to more in our Christian lives, with deep gratitude to God for his grace to us for all the times when we mess up and fail to act with integrity.

O God of Love - Stuart Townend
O God of love, I come to you again
Knowing I'll find mercy
I can't explain all the things I see
But I'll trust in you

In every moment you are there
Watching over, you hear my prayer
You go before me
You're behind me
Nothing's hidden from you

BB set in...brain clogged up with too much full english breakfast in Sainsbury's...

As Rachel Barkley shares a moving 55 minute message about facing her own death from cancer with hope she gives four important "knows":

1) Know God
2) Know yourself
3) Know the gospel
4) Know your purpose

Another "Gilbert and Anne" video. This time the slant is Anne playing "hard to get" over about 10 years. Ouch, ouch, ouch, poor Gil :(.

My head hurts after reading all about "wordpress" an alternative sort of blogging software. Don't panic, oh faithful readers, you'll still get the usual garbled output of Miss Anna but it just might be all a little bit visually more sophisticated...hhhmmmppp, we'll see...
"The Choir" moved on to "Boys can't sing"...well they can with Gareth Malone directing them:

Off to find (yet another!) sunset....tough life eh?
Brave guy! So looks like David Tennant too with that spiky hair do...Watching series 1 where there is the definite absence of the DT hair do...how shallow is Miss Anna?!

When Miss Anna was at the gym this morning (how impressive is that?!) saw this report on BBCNews 24 about loneliness. Sad reflection of the breakdown of marriage and family life in our society today. More people than ever are living on their own. Tickled tho, at the end by the promotion of the "urban village" model.

Manhattan in New York has 50% lone households, more than anywhere else in the United States, yet its 'urban village' model sustains social networks because people habitually use alternative meeting places, including cafes and public spaces," the authors wrote.

Thumbs up then to keep supporting Star Bucks and the Yummy Cake Company!

Why would Miss Anna rather watch the same DVD over and over again rather than watch a new one??? Duh, some things have no simple answers. 2 weeks notice is the late night movie....must be the 14th time by now easily. Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock; the latter is my favourite actress. The former can't act and just recycles all the same roles... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_guQ-_EFmHU
The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.

One is not as good as two...
Where your pleasure is, there is your treasure; Where your treasure is, there is your heart; Where your heart is, there is your happiness. Augustine
Iona did this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMppT0MdWMg but God has the first word on this one: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%206:19&version=NIV

Sweet dreams...
Sun, sun, sun but ouch, ouch, ouch....just learnt the hard way why suntan lotion is such a good idea!!!
