This plant matters, to me. It’s got a story. It’s a memory-maker. It’s a little part of God’s promise to me. Tending it’s has been part of my routine, from way before this to now……. It’s a visual of John 15 and more. Enjoy the glimpse into our back yard…..


The restart after annual leave is always a little brutal. The routines so different. The watch is back on my wrist. The pressures real and the to-do-list, too large! So what is it thats swirling around…… Sometimes you learn most when the heat is on! Unavoidable. Not desired: but true….. Great times sitting with a […]

Instead of wanting no trials before victory we must be willing to take from God’s hand the trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes […]


times with my Noah & Esther around and about. Such a treat and the delight of doing life at a different speed-setting. Eating, laughing and chatting incessantly.  Going back continually to get free samples of Cinnamon and Sugar pretzels! Entering a – build the car the fastest- competition. We made the scoreboard, but didn’t win.  […]

You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn’t have been complete without […]

More home-making adventures with Julie: and real-tree goodness. The three-meat Christmas roast was particularly good! Just-about recovery from all the pre-Christmas services: overdosing particularly on singing ‘Silent […]

fun facts….

from my world……. I’m surely no athlete, but only drink red top milk. I only follow less-than-200 twitter peeps on purpose! I enjoy great chocolate but still default to common-old-popping Terry’s Chocolate Orange! I get mildly ocd about the toilet roll coming from the top, not….. you get it?! Reading books still necessitates real books […]


…..from my Noah & Esther and having them around for a precious few days! They’ve got a great take on things – so here’s some of their truths!  Not so much a six-pack, as a fat-pack! Daddy you have many talents,….. but singing isnt one of them You’re the best even with the curly hair!? You […]
