Thought for the DayDo you remember building sandcastles on the beach? Or maybe you built big holes that could be chairs or perhaps you buried a family member in the sand??To build something that stood firm you had to have the right type of sand. Very dry sand wouldn’t form into a shape and extremely wet sand got stuck inside the bucket!! And then when you tried to add layers or stones it all crumb...  Read More

Thought for the DayWatching most of the country out enjoying snow days today has been a bit like watching someone eat my favourite chocolate and not share it! We LOVE snow as a family but we seem to be the only section of the UK to never get any... should we move?!Seriously, it’s reminded me today about the 10 commandments - particularly the one about not converting what your neighbour has! You se...  Read More

Thought for the DayLast Sunday I spoke at church about Love. How in 1 Corinthians 13 we are given ways in which we should love in our lives and how love needs to be the centre of everything we do and everything we are.I also referenced the love of our father from the parable of the Lost Sheep. How that shepherd searched through the rough and potentially dangerous terrain, how he looked high and lo...  Read More

Thought for the DayWhen was the last time you laughed so hard your tummy ached? Mine was today, but before that, it’s been a few weeks...The bible says that laugher is good, like a medicine and it also says that we should be more like children... and when we watch children they find everything funny - they see the world through a much lighter and more interesting view. They see the fun, they see t...  Read More

Thought for the DayWhy do we put moisturiser on our faces? Bit of a random question I know but why do we protect our skin like that? ... or here’s another random one, why do we put rain coats on when we head out to the rain??No I’m not mad, and yes I know it’s all about protection. Why then do we neglect to put on our spiritual amour before we go anywhere or so anything?Ephesians 6 tells us to put...  Read More

Thought for the DayI know I’m late in writing today’s thought, which got me thinking about time! I’ll make it a short one...A simple reminder tonight that Gods timing is perfect... and even when we feel he’s late - or early - we need to appreciate that God knows what we need and when we need it most.There have been many times in my life that I’ve felt God was running late, but the truth was, in th...  Read More

Thought for the DayToday I’ve been thinking about how we (humans) complicate things. Sometimes so much so that confusion reigns in situations that should be easy and simple.Nothing else in nature makes things so complicated, life to many animals seem so much less complicated. My thoughts turn to the scripture in Matthew, where we are told not to worry about anything, and then it’s compared to the ...  Read More

Thought for the DayStanley, our 6 year old son, enjoys watching programs hosted by Steve Backshall - an English explorer and animal expert. Tonight we watched an episode where he and a team of experts explored part of the jungle in South America - apparently where no humans had explored before.As they made their way down a meandering river in canoes, they came across some spectacular pieces of nat...  Read More

With Him, we can. And with Him it is possi...  Read More

Thought for the DayWe love a game in our house, whether that be a board game, gaming on devices or old fashioned fun games like hide & seek (yes, both Steve and I still play it with the kids!)One of today’s games was ‘Game Of Life’ and as we set off across the board we all ended at the same place but our ‘lives’ had all turned out very differently. Sophie and I had far to many children, our cars w...  Read More

Thought for the DaySinging and worshipping is one of my favourite things, I love the music and I love to lift my hands to honour my Heavenly Father. I miss corporate worship so much, and I long for the day that we can all gather and worship together again - to hear us all singing together again, what an amazing moment that will be.At the moment, this song raises my hands and voice like no other - ...  Read More

Thought For The DayI've spent some time today studying this scripture, as I'm using it on Sunday in my sermon.I love this version... why not take a moment now to read it through, slowly and carefully - read and absorb each line, each word... and then tune in on Sunday to find out my thoughts!The Way of LoveIf I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the crea...  Read More
