I imagine that as christians the greatest compliment we can receive is to be told that we are the spitting image of our Father.   It is after all what we strive for most.  To talk as he talks, to think as he thinks, to live as he lived and lives. ...

I wonder do you ever wonder ?  I often wonder quite a lot : I wonder how productive I could be if I actually got up early ? I wonder what it would be like to be truly domesticated ?  I wonder what it would feel like not to have the rush of driving a...

"When will you learn to do as you are told"? , that was the question that Maggie posed to me on Monday morning.   "Hmm I dont believe I have ever done as Im told" was my reply.  Looking at me with a slight grin, her response was...

I used to think that climbing mountains, running into burning buildings and wrestling spiders was the ultimate act of bravery .  Yet in recent days I have come to realise that accepting oneself and ones past has to be the greatest , bravest thing any...

I think today I would like to live somewhere warmer.  Its cold where I live.  Its always cold.  The type of cold that gets into your very bones, it hurts, it paralyases and it is never satisfied.  I didn't always live in a cold country.  I used to...

I am not quite sure how yesterday turned into an ashes day, it just sorta crept up on me .  I went from perfume and dress clothes to cinders, ashes and sack cloth in the space of half an hour.  i went from sweetness and light to tears and tantrums at...

Sleeping has not been one of my strong points for a long long time.  I would drop off as soon as my head touched the pillow but within two hours I am awake.  So with that in mind my doctor decided I needed a little help in the form of a magic white...

I have a nasty little habit; Its not what you think, I dont gamble, I dont rob banks and I most certainly dont play golf.  What I do do though, is tear my lip.  I tear it until it is raw and then I tear it some more.  Only when it hurts to high heaven...

It is almost two twenty in the afternoon here in school and up to now it has been a rather nice day.  The kids have so far been behaving themselves and the Library is cosy and warm despite the best intentions of this winter storm trying to upset my...

I remember myself as the young christian, constantly running around doing things for God and trying to split myself in two simply to please Him. I would like to have the opportunity to go back and tell my foolish self these things I have over the...

Its funny in a strange old kind of way to sit and ponder a title for a blog.  What fits?  What makes sense?  How will it relate?  Today I sat and pondered my title.  Often I choose a title that gives the game away as to what the content will be.  But...

So today I woke up determined to hide my phone.  I was not going to bring it to work because I didn't want to have to take a phone call that I dread, dont expect to come yet know I need it.  I really thought it was a good idea. Out of sight and...

My dog is a bit of a coward.  She likes to pretend she is otherwise but her bravery deserts her when she comes face to face with an empty cardboard tube, a floor brush, a cordless dyson,  a cushion and a hedgehog.  Yup, you heard me right; my dog is...

So today I have decided that I am in the wrong job. It is quiet in the library so I was flicking through images of the revolutions in Russia and reading of the impact on the people there 100 years on from those two events. But that enthusium waned...

I had a very interesting conversation today with a young lady at work.  The topic was mental health and the conversation came around to healing, and why God does not heal those he loves.   Her arguement was ; "Surely a parent wants what is best...
