I haven’t been on here for a while and I have been unsure as to how to break the blogging ice. Now here I am, I have made an amazing salad and I would like to share this with you!

Beetroot was just not one of my favourite vegetables until a couple of years back. It reminded me of what an awful teacher at school used to put on his plate from the salad bar at lunch.

Then one lunch time I was having a picnic with my Polish friend and she shared some of her sweetfire pickled beetroot with me…

As a gherkin fan, I loved it. The sharpness of the vinegar and the earth beetroot was just amazing. Since that moment I cannot get enough of the darn thing, and I’m okay with that because there are amazing health benefits from eating them as well.

I bought some…

A powerful song: at the foot of the cross

Click on Kathryn Scott her official website.

I was born in 1974 into a wonderful Christian family, and am the eldest of four children.  Having grown up in Northern Ireland, I moved to England in the early 90s to study theology at the Elim Bible College. Not only did I earn my degree there, but also met and married the lovely Alan Scott! In 1996 we moved to Glasgow (where Alan is from) and became assistant pastors in the South West Glasgow Vineyard as it was at the time, and served there for two years. After that time we both felt the Lord was leading us to move back to Ireland and plant Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, which is where we still are to this day.

Whilst that is some of the story with church planting, there was a whole other world opening up at the same time. I met Brian Doerksen in 1997 and he trained about ten of us over the course of the next two years.

This was when I wrote and recorded Hungry and Child of God. In 2002 I signed to Integrity Music, with whom I recorded three solo albums, Satisfy, I Belong and We Still Believe. I released an independent EP called “Sing on the Battlefield” in 2014 and am excited for what’s next.

Alan and I have two beautiful daughters called Sophie and Emily, and two slightly crazy labs called Charlie and Lily!  We’re so grateful for all the Lord has called us to, and for the enormous fun we’ve had along the way as it’s all unfolded!

Beautiful nature…

After a very enjoyable service at the Baptist church in Niort, a street away from my brother, we had lunch in the garden. Later on we went for a two hour walk; I found it hard work because it was very warm and for some reason I forgot to bring some water. The surrounding was lovely part in town part in the countryside, la campagne niortaise.

Civray, a market town in the heart of France

Dear friends, as it’s getting late and I should be dreaming away, I will only post a few photos and not say too much. Today we went to Civray to see two more houses and we found one that was of some interest or let’s say, one that had potential to please us… Watch this space…

Du cote de Benet!

wpid-img_20150409_154831036_hdr.jpg

Today later in the afternoon we visited another house in Benet a big village on the road to La Rochelle. This was the first house that got our interest! When we went back at Denis, my brother, Steven cooked us quails in the oven with lovely roasted vegetables, eggplants, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, echalottes and of course French herbs.

Tomorrow we have another two houses to visit! Reflecting on the viewing we have done, the quality of it all is enhanced by the imagination of the estate agent. I explain, if the agent manages to picture a vision of the house beautifully decorated and/or renovated, somehow, we are going to associate her/his pictures in the viewing experience. Even though some of it may not be your first choice of renovation, it will help and make the ‘dream’ more real.

While we were out, my brother cleaned up the whole ‘terrace’ and as he put an old american film his dog Glam took advantage and fell asleep next to him.

Have a blessed evening.
