Staying with the lovely Laura and Alistair, 1000 wedding photos later... "This is the room we call Kath's room". More tea and lots of fun chatting.

The randomness of praying on Skype with Birgitte. Good invention this world wide web thing. Shopping for clothes for Saturday night, needing the 'I am confident in God for this evening but quite like to feel good about what I am wearing' outfit. Finding it. And some other pretty things. Off to Skegness and New York, so bumper 365's in a couple of weeks.

My visitor this morning... He came in through an open window. Cute, apart from the rather painful scratches I now have on my arm as a result of trying to move him away from my computer. Ah well.

"Are we all alright?". Honesty being a Good Thing. Paddling in the sea.


Birgitte being back. Heading down to the beach and spinning around really fast until we fell over, just to feel the earth spinning. Star gazing.

Time with friends. Just the freedom of being ourselves, chatting, catching up, sharing ideas, stories, fun, depth and all the brilliance of friendship. Being with people who care about me.

A day just being with the lovely Sarah, good food, the paper, books and catching up on the weirdness of life. Coming home to BIRGITTE. Woooop de woo! Being exceptionally tired but very happy that our house is back to normal for a few days.

Jess and Jonny in Costa. Up to London for Posh evening with Posh people. Almost managing to hold my own amongst them. Hehe.

Davina and the Bible waking me up this morning. (an interesting combination). Talking about God with Jo this afternoon.

Wednesday, March 21, 2007


Interviewing potential Relay workers and the shiver down the spine at a God at work in lives. Getting to once again bang on about how our God works as I helped led a seminar on FE work with Kenny- The weak and foolish. The small and stupid. The overlooked and undervalued. The one person sitting in a room. Our God is brilliant in his use of fools like us, so that He gets the glory, and we get to see how great he really is.

The man who makes us cry at Team Days. Really, really wanting to know God like that and live in obedience to God again. The stomp around the duck pond and a God who listens, takes my telling him to f**ing well show Himself and brings the truth to light in my heart. Glad he hears the cries of his daughter, and is big enough to take my puny punches in his Big loving arms. Wanting to walk in His ways again. Gareth's amazing insighful questions asked at the right time. Getting to tell the team how great he has been over the years. Lots of laughter at the South West team's acting ability...

Fun with Jess and Ceryn at Starbucks and the usual Gunwarf Quay trip before Team Days. Choosing Gareth a shirt for his leaving present. Discovering all the news, glad it's all out in the open now. Well almost.

Surprising my Mum by turning up for lunch, glad for a home I can walk into and get hugs. Mum hugs. Laughing with my family. Realising this afternoon that God does answer prayers and I need some more faith. Glad there is more to this world than I can see in front of me.

Saturday. Bliss day of sleeping, cycling and watching a lot of Black Books with Lizzi and Cathy. Buying a Davina workout Dvd for the house and Cardio Boxing. Oh Dear.

Friday, March 16, 2007


Sitting in the sunshine on Campus, attempting to remember that God really DOES love me and isn't disappointed in me. Because Hebrews 2 and 10 are true (and the bits inbetween...) Chats about God with the not at all mainstream Binface, book group and the wonders of Johnny Cash live from San Quentin in my ears all the way home.

Thursday, March 15, 2007


Getting it SO wrong in drumming tonight but not caring all that much because some bits I got right and that sounded gooood. Home after a grumpy tired day to calling my Mum and telling her all about it and then eating an amazing fish finger buttie with my housemate. As Binface would say, it's not so bad after all.


Supervision in the sun, Hebrews 10 making us woop! Amazing salad, beaching it and the first paddle in the sea of the year.

Driving through the delightful Sussex countryside this evening, sunset through the trees.

Monday, March 12, 2007


An uber productive day. Staying awake enough in the afternoon to finish prep.


Lazing on a Sunny Sunday. Morning beach, church, sorting, West wing, friends on the phone and trash tv in the evening. Mm.

Sunday, March 11, 2007


The endorphin high of cycling up to Devils Dyke and then freewheeling all the way down. Sunny Saturdays, Mark and Roz to visit, the sea to walk along and eating beautiful food with Mum and Dad.

Relay Day, laughter, tears and lots and lots of the Bible. Shedding a small tear with love for my wonderful brother and the deep reality of how 1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5 is the air of his life, he is a walking example of those verses. Lou's laughter at finally seeing where I get everything from. The passion welling up within me again that God is not impressed with what we are impressed with. We love the bold, the 'cool', the big named speakers, the people who've written loads of books and have clever things to say. God really really isn't impressed, He loves the weak, the foolish, those of us who know we need only Him and cry out to him. Wanting to spend the rest of my life living this and telling it to the world around.
Discovering that although my broadband is dead dial up still works and I am in touch with the world, just in a less surfing the internet constantly and more time and space to not spend all my time staring at a screen, this is going to be good for me.

Sunshine and the Bible doing it's work. Getting to be in the right place at the right time and be of use despite my sinful heart. Glad God works inspite of me and through me. Seeing God at work through Binface once again. Trusting in the Bible being brilliant and the only way to guide us through this life of living out the reality of who we are. Glad that God has shown us Him. Glad that life boils down to the simplest of things. Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Amen.


"Get your coat and wellies, we're going out." Stomping the downs with Jess, sunshine, the simple beauty of lots of green against a pure blue background. Remembering Joy. Pub food, cute dog, gong to Singleton. The moment when Ephesians 1 kicked me up the backside and I was reminded of the good things of this life. Adoption, forgiveness, restoration, chosen and delighted in. The end to moaning. Speaking to Birgitte and thinking she was just downstairs.


Lots and lots of laughter and good chats with prayer partner tonight. Reassured about the usefulness of this crazy job and sharing lives.

Visting cute small children. Chats to God in the car on the way home. Chats in the evening, realising again that all I want is heaven here and now, attempting the contentment, trusting in God's wisdom thing until it all gets made right again. Scrabble and tea tonight.


Cheering talk with someone who does know what he is talking about and helps me be more confident in trusting the Word more and more. Getting pretty flowers. Home to a long deep hot bath. Mmmmmm.


God at work on my stoopid pride, his word working it's way into the hardness. Bongo/djambe action moments, hitting things in time and loving every moment of it. The stupid grin came back. Dancing moments with Jess, watching her and Ceryn in top Relay action. The lunar eclipse. Hot Chocolate from the G man. Banter and enjoying each other. Sleep.

Friday, March 02, 2007


Heading off to the Training weekend to work with my lovely team. Glad to have colleagues in the same place for a whole weekend. Dolly Mixtures to keep us awake. Champagne and Caviar, all you need is the gospel, God has brought us into fellowship with him. Crazy.

"What kind of I'm fine are you?". Being glad I won the battle of the duvet this morning and swam. Sunshine in the sky. It is no longer February. Hitting things in time again making me happy, and my back ache...
