Fresh Bed Linen

When you've stripped the bed, got the old linen in the washing machine and the new safely installed. Well, only then can you say that all is well with the world!!

The Last Word On Marriage

Douglas Wilson on marriage: “Become the kind of person the kind of person you would like to marry would like to marry.”

Worry

Had a meeting hanging over me all week and when it came to it was...well surprise, surprise...there was nothing to worry about! Thinking a lot about reducing my anxiety levels. Will share bits and pieces with you as I figure my way to a life free of worry!!

Bacon And Eggs Riddle

So, did you work it out. Was reminded by one of my readers today to give the answer and not leave you hanging.

Well, the egg was involved....the hen laid the egg but is still alive

The bacon was committed...provided the bacon but in doing so lost it's life

Out Of The Blue

I think it's fair to say my obsession with Greg James (I did tell you about that didn't I?!) has transferred to "Out Of The Blue" the acapella vocal group from Oxford. They are awesome..been trawling through YouTube finding various clips of different performances. They are actually singing at the Edinburgh Fringe tonight but haven't quite made it. Definitely going to see them when I get a chance.

Just in case you missed them the first time here's my top 4...
  1. Let It Snow, Flashmob
  2. Don't Stop Me Now, Queen
  3.  BGT Semi Final 2011
  4. Hips Don't Lie, Shakira

Unexpected Surprise

Always nice when a friend drops in unexpectedly for a brew. Especially one you don't see much of. So much to catch up on!!




Factory Reset

So the result of having to be out the house just after 6:30am for a few mornings is that I now wake up at...6:30am. This is actually pretty cool because I've discovered I'm more of a morning person than I first realised. That is if I've gone to bed early enough!!

Parking Angst

Why am I so bad at parking straight? I can fit into tight spaces no problem, but parking straight is another matter!!

Facebook Status

Feeling 

That's my status tonight and with a life crammed to the seams with good things but especially because I have Jesus in my life, well, what's there to complain about? The difficulties and burdens are so much lighter to carry with the right perspective on things. I have a good God and he is so very kind, especially in the hard times.

Bacon and Egg

So, this is what my Pastor said today about the difference between bacon and eggs as one of his more classy sermon illustrations:

"You see, the eggs are involved but the bacon is committed" 

I'll leave you to work that one out...I had to ask a mate for an explanation. Answer in a couple of days...

Good Day

Lots to think about from God's word at church today then a good dose of toast, tea and chatting with some special girlies from one of my fave families. Had to laugh because the guys in the house were no-where to be seen. Would they have got a word in edgewise? Unlikely!!!




About A Boy

This film is full of laughs but this scene is just such a beautiful example of love in action. Will thought he had Island living all sorted and no need to have anyone else living in it. Then his world was turned upside down when Marcus comes into his life. And the conclusion of the story "no man is an Island"...
