Ironing mountain?

Started chipping away, one item at a time...

When is God good?

Always, every minute, always pouring his grace and goodness on his children....

But now, this is what the Lord says—
    he who created you, Jacob,    he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.When you walk through the fire,    you will not be burned;    the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43 v 1-2

Gym update



lot of money measured against what could be achieved by regular cycle rides and runs....really nice though.

Impromptu fellowship?!

How many Christians is it possible to bump into in two days worth of shopping? A small handful!




DELIRIOUS?

Shaken Up

White Ribbon Day

Obsession

The Christian pop group who made credible inroads into the secular pop scene in the mid 90's before calling it a day. Just love the acoustic guitar.

Sun is back out!!!

Today is looking good for Miss Anna. Good night's sleep. scrambled eggs on muffin and a visit to a gym this morning regarding membership. Having a guest session with a friend who is a member at a woman's only gym. We'll see...

Film

What is the point of the film I'm watching? Lost its way somewhere. Think its more of a thriller than a romance. And no happy ending. What is the point unless there is?! Welcome to the Anne of Green Gables fantasy world of Miss Anna...

Revelation

Not all about me!!!

Endorphins

Hoping going for a run shortly will shift the cloud which Miss Anna is dwelling under, not helped by a meeting with people who are supposed to be helpful and were quite the opposite....gggrrrhhhhhh. Maybe she should have seen the caption below before the meeting..or maybe just as well!!  Lol, alright really, nothing a dominoes pizza and Ben and Jerrys won't help. That is it finally decided...no choice, gotta climb to the top of the comfort food ladder...hence the run before to burn off the associated calories...and it's cookie dough ice cream ok!

Waiting

Again...

Cooking

What do I do when fed up? Cook, cook, cook! Massive therapy for "fed-up-ness."

there's even a blog with that name: cooking therapy blog




Miss Anna the Rock Chick

1) wow, lets get going:

Carman, God's got an army with Narnia images

2) this song always lifts my spirits when feeling down:

Carman, Saved, delivered and healed

3) and this one makes me smile as I rap along....lets get down with it!!

Carman Resurrection Rap







Depression by PT

What good can come out of a period of depression?

difficult day 3

Not getting any better for Miss Anna. Just fed up so that most of her close friends are away this weekend which shows what a lousy friend she is because she should be pleased they're getting a break. She is! Just feeling a bit lonely and massively sorry for herself with a big S! The Lords know what it best though and everything is safe in his hands.

Waiting

...teaches us about trusting the Lord for everything. We may have our own set of ideas of how to "fix" a difficult situation but, trusting him, we find ourselves amazed at the way he orders our steps and gives us so many "kind providences" when and where we least expect them...

Knitting project

Cast on 30 stitches and started knitting a scarf. Should be ready by winter!

Difficult days

Sometimes one ends and another begins and you can't quite put a finger on what it is but you're just out of sorts with the world!  Miss Anna is on day 2 of this cycle so hoping day 3 will bring a more benevolant outlook on the world in general. Mind you day 1 had it's own troublesome difficulties so maybe it can be explained...

love is patient

love is kind and sometimes it is tough...

Run/Walk/Run/Walk

Got out this morning for a "Ralk" which I was pleased about because did more running than walking. Trying to pluck up the courage to go to running group tomorrow...

Dieting

Until there is a change of attitude, Miss Anna ain't gonna lose the 4 stone she'd like to shift...get those running shoes on girl...

Holby City

Loving it as usual. Don't diss it till you've seen it!

Waiting

Miss Anna spends a lot of time doing this at the moment...and not always patiently...

Royal Wedding

So what were you doing 2 years ago?

Where were you when they Kate and William got married? I was in Hyde park watching on the big screens...

Tidy Miss Anna

Things have reached such a state in Miss Anna's 1st floor that matters have to be taken in hand and eyes fixed on the final outcome despite distractions:
