Jesus is King

Will you pray

les fruits de l esprit

Will you pray

With me and ask our Father in heaven

To bless us and our families,

To pour his wisdom on us and our friends

To give us strength during trials

To send His light in our night

To wrap us in patience and perseverance,

To lift us through joy and peace

Knowing that Jesus our Saviour

Lover of our souls,

and our King

Is always looking after us

His sheep, though at times in the ditch,

And feeling sorry for ourselves

Ready to welcome us back in his fold.

Asking in the beautiful name of Jesus. Amen



When things get tough…

When things get tough, and it’s one  thing after another, before I feel like I’m drowning,  I thought that I’d listen to these two songs, they tell me of our Father in heaven’s love and compassion for his children. It’s just the waiting that’s hard. Keep us in your prayers pls.

Are you getting settled?

This is the question that our family and friends are asking us on a regular basis since we took a huge leap of faith and moved to France in the Poitou-Charente region. As we’ve only been here for over a week, it’s difficult to say. We haven’t unpacked all the boxes yet but we know more or less what they contain.Steven found my camera in one of the boxes in the lounge so I was really pleased.

Sunday, we enjoyed worship and fellowship in our new evangelical Eglise de maison. The Lord is so good.

I ask in Jesus-Christ, amen.

Party time!


This is what I it felt like though there was no party as such. A few days ago Imo told me that she could come and see us next Wednesday! Then I did not hear anything from her until Tuesday night when she told me the time at which she’d arrive, it was 12:30..well on the day, she rang me to tell me that she’d miss the train so she arrived later. It seemed ages since I’d seen my baby…who turned 20 y.o. in August but she is still my baby..After deciding where she wanted to go for diner she rang her friend Ellie and Steven treated us to an Indian in Shimla. It was perfect..We came back home for pinapple and vanilla ice-cream…then we watched alltogether one of her favorite series..Yesterday went so fast.. I managed to bake a chocolate cake for her flatmate Amans’ 21st birthday and it was time for us to part again at the station.

Those precious moments are answers to prayers and I feel blessed beyond words! Today is Steven’s day off and as I am not working (again!!) we will walk to Great Haywood for a bit of exercise. Have a beautiful day!

Thank you Lord

Special time!


In spite of his busy schedule, my hubby managed to pick a day to go to London in order to visit our daughter. This was last Wednesday. We asked her to ask her boss that this day would be her day off and she sorted it out. We got up at six thirty, had a quick coffee and soon we were driving on the M1.  We also prayed that the Lord protects us during the whole day. On the way there, we were only delayed because of road works but nothing much. There was plenty of parking space in her busy street! We were so pleased to see each other and we were overcome by love and joy. When we finished moving all her stuff we went for a drink with her friend and then to Angels for a curry. When we sat down, the waiter announced that we should be fast as they were closing orders within 5 minutes. Still we had plenty of time to order. I felt blessed that we could have a special time before term starts.




On the way back home that evening, I tried to take a photo (in the car – not a good idea!) of the beautiful skyline, rain and sun giving a special effect, however it seems ruined because of the truck..not that I have got anything against trucks of course…

A prayer today. Thank you Lord for giving us the opportunity for this special time with our daughter and her friend, thank you for the conversation, the love and the joy. Thank you Jesus for what you did on the cross for us, for our new life as none of it would be possible without you. We ask you Lord that you protect all families and give them a special time to appreciate each other according to you love. In Jesus-Christ Amen.

In our new garden…


There are lots of different flowers




And two plum trees to be precise the Mirabelles de Nancy that Steven picked for our party tomorrow. My cousines are visiting us all the way from Bordeaux.



So we are holidaying in Civray in a beautiful campsite at the edge of the town which explains the presence of this herd of cows.
The owners are welcoming and friendly.
This morning I continued reading the Gospel of Mark from ch6 to ch 9. Our Saviour is so understanding and patient with the disciples taking time to explain the paraboles to them (and us) i.e. Mark 7:18 ,Jesus full of compassion and love healed lots of  people, Mark 6:56. One of my favourite passages is when Peter says: you are the Messiah..Mark 8:29 When Jesus tells his disciples that He will suffer a lot, be rejected,put to death and resurrect 3 days later, Peter objected. The idea of the suffering servant was not something the disciples anticipated. Imagine their amazement at what was happening, Jesus forgiving sins,  telling off the Pharisees, calling them hypocrites, feeding the 4000 and then the 5000 with only a few pieces of bread and fish, delivering people from evil spirits..mind blowing stuff and the journey keeps on!
Have a lovely, peaceful and blessed weekend!

Happy mother’s day

Hope you are all having a fantastic day.

At 9:30 I went to church in our village for a well-attended service led by Nicola. Maureen was on the organ and we sang a few songs including the following one: He has the whole world in his hands, I’m humming it now. After the service, we all gathered for a chat and the enormous apple cake that my friend Lilly baked disappeared very quickly!

This was the Gospel of today’s service.

Jesus said, “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.”

JOHN 3:14-21

After church, my hubby prepared a lovely Mother’s day diner for both of us, some smoked salmon and pasta. This morning our girls wished me Happy Mother’s day and I feel much blessed, praising the Lord for his goodness.



At 6pm, my friend Lilly is meeting me at home and we’ll walk to the Bank House for a ‘Mothering Songs of praise’ that starts at 7pm. So if you are near Hixon, Weston, Sandon, Salt, Stowe by Chartley or Gaeton and Fradswell, do come. It will be fun!
