#BigRead13: Day 29: Imagination

Today’s #lentphotos asks for a photo on #nutrition … having eaten crisps (and nothing else yet) this evening (and I do have a load of salad in the fridge) good to be reminded that there’s plenty of good nutrition options:

#BigRead13 Thoughts

There’s a number of imaginative interpretations on @bigbible – but one whose I particularly look out for are those from Kate Bruce – and particularly thinking back to this post – where she took time to sit and think in what guise God would appear to her (in this case a woman gardener)

I love the way that C.S.Lewis describes Eustace in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – “He thought of course that they were making it all up; and as he was far too stupid to make anything up himself, he did not approve of that.”” In a world where ‘fact’ has been raised to such a high status it’s great to celebrate creativity and imagination!

Reminded me of the quote attributed to Winston Churchill when asked to cut arts funding in the war “then what are we fighting for?” – apparently fictitious – shame – great (and I think true) sentiment!

Though my brain struggles to imagine heaven … beyond my thinking – what about you?!


Genesis 21:6 – God has brought us laughter. Oh yeah…

Share a joke.. :

A jump-lead walks into a bar. The barman says “I’ll serve you, but don’t start anything.”

Pam’s Perambulations

Love this:

We find our way to God, not by who we are, or what we’ve done, but simply by believing in Jesus.  He accepts us just as we are, there is no test, no criteria to meet, no right background to come from – believing in him is enough.
