You Only Have One Life: Live It Well

It’s such a pain not having a functional (internet) computer at home, can take a little while to get around to these things, and fit them around the sheer volume of work that is currently coming in!

Just got to keep believing it’s going to keep coming, although am putting my Continue Reading →

I didn’t know Westlife could be so profound…

What about ‘area manager’?” “Yes,” sighed my friend, by this time a broken woman, “area Continue Reading →

The Challenge of Daily Bible Readings

On my RTW travels, this didn’t really happen, but I had lots of time out to think and check out God’s creation. Once I hooked up with Oak Hall for this summer, again with Alastair on my first trip, I decided I’d go for the ‘Bible in a Year’ option. I tried using one Continue Reading →
