First Oxford

Last week, my Parisian cousin Clo came to visit us, so I went to pick her up at Birmingham on a Friday morning. It was a disaster, there was a massive traffic jam up to Walsall where I decided I should leave the M6. Google satnav took me to the next junction and it was not so heavy but I was late! In the evening we had a bbq of course. On Saturday Steven drove us to Oxford where we had a fantastic time even though it was raining! First we went to the Eagle and Child where C.S. Lewis used to meet his friend Tolkien, and then we took Clo round the colleges, the market and the high street.

The Comforter

Who do you turn to when you are suffering?

Originally posted on Unashamed of Jesus:

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

Who is your comfort in times of trouble? Who do you turn to when you are suffering?  We need to remember you are never alone, God is with you. He gives us the peace and strength thru the Holy Spirit, the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is alive in you.

If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same…

When I am I and You are You…?

Originally posted on l i g h t room:

A  renowned rabbi who lived in Poland in the 1800s, had many famous sayings. This is one of them: “If I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you, then I am I and you are you. But if I am I because you are you, and you are you because I am I, then I am not I and you are not you!”

Did you catch that? It sounds like a riddle, but it’s actually a very simple concept. When someone lives their life according to what others might think of them, then they don’t really live an authentic expression of who they really are. Moses…(taught) the Israelites – and us – that we must live our lives according to what God will think of us, as opposed to what other people may think of us. There will be times when doing the…

Five reasons to holiday in Wales

1 – Beautiful weather especially if you  are going in May

2- Caring family if you happen to have any living there especially in the rainbow Rhonda valley.

3- Hearing most people speaking Welsh will make you think you are abroad.

4- Lovers of photography, some wild nature and rugged scenery welcome you.

5- Quaint architecture, exquisite food, and a sense of well being.

One of my favourite gospel songs!

It’s called The heart of worship and written by Matt Redman.

When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless your heart
I’ll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus

King of endless worth
No one could express
How much you deserve
Though I’m weak and poor
All I have is yours
Every single breath
I’ll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, lord, for the thing I’ve made it
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus

I’m coming back to the heart of worship,
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus

It’s all about you
It’s all about you
It’s all about you
It’s all about you
It’s all about you
It’s all about you

It’s all about you
It’s all about you
It’s all about you
It’s all about you

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, lord, for the thing I’ve made it
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus

So, what is your favorite gospel song?

I have marking to do and I started it late, however I am blessed. As I am marking, I am listening to some beautiful gospel songs on Youtube, discovering new ones too!  Have a blessed evening!
