The Real McCoy

Always worth holding out for...

God's Blessing

Sometimes the Lord's blesses us in such a personal and particular way that we are just blown away by his goodness.

Thank you God.

Psalm 126 v 5

Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy


I am now trying to implement a Miss Anna form of Super Nanny technique to address insominia combined with some tips I heard a few years ago. So, when I wake up having been asleep for about an hour and can't get back to sleep..I:

1) get out of bed
2) walk downstairs
3) assess whether I need to eat/drink and if I do appropriate action
4) log onto blog/facebook/read Bible for 10 minutes
5) go back to bed and try again
6) if this doesn't work after 10 mins then repeat 1)-5) again...

Puritans would say that step 4) is too much but it gets lonely being awake night after night...(get the violins out)

Supernanny, toddler won't sleep

OK, that's phase 4 completed, now to 5, hoping for more success......

Girly Friends

Good to catch up with an incredibly old friend

Daily Mercies

There are so many, he is so good.

His mercies fail not, they are new every morning.

Miss Anna X factor cont...

Do I go for the live acoustic version

Avril Lavigne Live

or the music video?

When You're Gone, music video

The next thing

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed and don't know what to do next?

The next thing. When that is done, the next thing and so the iteration continues, probably for the rest of your life!


Sometimes you just have to wait...patiently.


Why becomes a bigger word with each year that passes. Becomes harder to shake it off as the problem endures and seems intractable. Maybe it won't ever end? Others seem to sail through life while our burden threatens to sink us.

Our questions are silenced when we look at what our saviour suffered on our behalf when he died for all our rebellion and sin. One day we will have no more questions but will be fully satisfied in him and have no unmet needs.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4v10

X Factor for Miss Anna

Short term project to be able to perform "When you're gone" by Avril Lavigne, vocally and playing the guitar and upload it on Utube and this blog.


Relationships, A Mess Worth Making

Miss Anna

She has been away a long time but now she is back with a new hair-cut, for those of you that haven't met Miss Anna before; well, it's a pleasure to meet you.

So kind of Anne Hathaway to model my new haircut...


Prayer for You

If Sharleen is ever having a bad day, Miss Anna does a far superior version on her electro acoustic guitar; and she can sing at the same time ...
