the idea

16 Dec

so, the idea is-why do we/I love what destroys, tears, devours me? us?

a simple answer, a simple plan:

life, our life is not and will never be enough.

I want more. We always want more.

And only He, our Jesus,  can provide this ‘more’.

Yesterday, 15 december I had a massively, massively challenging day. The new flat? No heat or hot water or current. Tranformer burnt out. I ‘lost’ my schedule in the house. An with it our UK banking devise. Walk through at the old flat at 12 was stressful. The the ‘Hobbit’ movie Priscilla wanted to see? Violence and no character devlopment. A waste of three hours after the stressfill walk through. Home to new flat. Heat on. I cooked dinne & washed dishesr. Did two hours ofmarriage counseling with a couple in crisis with Priscilla.

But- but today

Ashley called me today and said He was moved to pray for me. me.



Loved, by a saint. That is His simple plan…to be loved. the plan, His idea. 1 John 4:19 we love

we love Ashley, because, He first loved us.


what an idea.

Works for me

what women have taught me, part 1

23 Oct

women have taught me, what?


Mum, that ‘mothers will forget their children.’ Isaiah 49:15-16. It is not a question in the original Hebrew, but a Statement.


Barbara, a reflection on enduring love, even in unfaithfulness. Hosea 11:8 ‘How can I give you up, Ephraim? … My heart is changed within me; all my compassion is aroused.’


Priscilla, healing from Psalm 126, ‘When the Lord restored the fortunes of[a] Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy…’


Pepper, my dog, unconditional love, Proverbs 19: 22a ‘What a man desires is unfailing love…’
