How Are You?

Trying to learn to use that throw away phrase with more sincerity and training my ear to be ready for more honest answers. Probably write about this more another time but that's a taster for now.

Un Embouteillage

So what can be learnt from a traffic jam? Seem to be spending a lot of time in the moment on the daily commute. Some sections are predictable but others take you by surprise. Tonight happened upon two sets of portable traffic lights which caused chaos with teatime traffic.

There is probably a list but for me, patience. For someone who wants everything done yesterday and is always making plans being put in a place where there is no choice but to sit and not move...well it's a good place to learn patience.

I'll remind myself of this post in the next long queue of stationary traffic I sit in and remind myself of what I'm supposed to be learning.

All things covers traffic jams...good is becoming more like Jesus. Way to go Miss Anna!!

Lovefilm v The Cinema

I love going to the cinema but LoveFilm does have it's advantages. Apart from being able to watch a film in home comforts it also means you can reject a bad film without a wasted trip out!!

Jury still out on "A Little Chaos"... Kate Winslet has 20 minutes to prove herself or she'll be back in the postal system tomorrow!

John Piper Gets It So Right

Occasionally weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God. And embrace the life you have.

I'm not going to ruin that by saying anything more. Saw this on Facebook then a friend sent me via Whatsapp so I just had to share.

Night ya all

There Is No Other Name

We need something we can depend on in this world of good and bad days, joys and sorrows, health and sickness. Only this song: There Is No Other Name

My joy in sorrows tears
My strength to cast out fears
No other name, but Jesus, Jesus
My hope in darkest night
My broken soul's delight
No other name but Jesus, Jesus

 Whatever this week brings, there is one who is utterly and completely dependable.

Bach Has The FInal Word

When we're talking classical musical once you've come to know and love Bach anything else is shallow and narrow in comparison. Sweeping statement Miss Anna!! Well, in my narrow musical experience I have never played anything as sublime and beautiful as Bach.

I would like to point out I have never mastered this, nowhere near but I hope that one day, before arthritis and old age set in, I will.

Kitchen Therapy

I go into my kitchen to create, to produce and...more often than not, to wash up and clear up. All those things give me so much pleasure, even the clearing up bit because looks so smashing when finished.
