THE SIGNS OF A DYING CHURCH — CHOMSKYWEB

Church is boring for most because the power of God has vanished from many congregations … there is a lack of desire to pursue Him in the pulpit as well as in the pew. Like Samson, they “know not that the Spirit of the Lord has departed” (cf. Judge 16:20). High attendance is not […]

thanks to Jesus

Since I’ve started teaching in September in Angoulême, I have stopped going to the choir on Tuesday night. Lately I have changed bible study group, instead of Thursday night I go on Wednesday afternoon.  I’ve had to organise myself in the morning since I need to get out of the house at 6:30 am and no later. In fact after the February hols, I missed my train.  I had to drive all the way to Angoulême and I was so tired in the evening.

I am so grateful to the Lord for all the blessings he pours on us day after day. He is patient and full of compassion.  I say this because as I am growing old, I realise how frail we are and that somehow I am still around thanks to Jesus amazing love and grace.

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

 

 

Jesus, lover of my soul

It’s all about You, Jesus

And all this is for You

For Your glory and Your fame

It’s not about me

As if You should do things my way

You alone Are God And I surrender To Your ways

Jesus, lover of my soul All consuming fire is in Your gaze

Jesus, I want You to know I will follow You all my days

For no one else in History is like You

And History itself belongs to You Alpha and Omega,

You have loved me And I will share eternity with You

Special time!

At last, our daughters visited us one after the other. Tonight I will speak about Im’s visit and I will tell you about Cam’s visit tomorrow! Even though time’s gone so fast, I find myself thinking of what we said and what we did together and my heart is filled with joy and I give thanks to the Lord for his abundant blessings on our family.

Imo who studies in London flew from Stansted and stayed ten days with us. I picked her up in Poitiers and as we were driving off the car park, we saw Mickle our Scottish friend who lives also in Civray so I offered him a lift. That evening we went to a  restaurant called The Relais civraisien. I ‘d booked before hand asking them if they had a choice of vegan food. It was very quiet, no ambiance. Steven chose the ‘tête de veau’. Imogen had an  asparagus and carrot starter and another vegetable dish for her main. In England, in most menus, there is a choice of Vegetarian dishes indicated with a V and if there are less Vegan options, chef and waitresses know about them.

The following week we went to the Hotel du Commerce restaurant.  When I booked , I asked if they had anything for my daughter who is a vegan, in French ‘végétalien’. Once I explained what it meant, the owner told me that they could cater for her. When we looked at the menu, there was nothing at all for vegetarian or vegan. Everything had meat or fish/seafood so we spoke to the waitress and again we had to explain what it meant. Fortunately, the chef appeared and told us that he could do a risotto with vegetables; he had a dairy cream that he could use. Imo said she’d rather have the risotto made with water. Our food was wonderful and beautifully presented and we had a great time!

We went to the cinema and watched Marseille, a very good comedy!

For my birthday we went to my brother Denis who lives in Niort. The night before Imo helped me prepare a drizzle lemon cake. Denis cooked a leg of lamb for us and roasted vegetables for  Imo. We watched a film at his too but I cannot remember its name!

Have a blessed evening  🙂

Who am I?

“Who Am I”
Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt?
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart?

Not because of who I am
But because of what You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean.
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I’m calling.
Lord, You catch me when I’m falling.
And You’ve told me who I am.
I am Yours, I am Yours.

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again?
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me?

Not because of who I am
But because of what You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean.
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I’m calling.
Lord, You catch me when I’m falling.
And You’ve told me who I am.
I am Yours.

Not because of who I am
But because of what You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean.
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I’m calling.
Lord, You catch me when I’m falling.
And You’ve told me who I am.
I am Yours, I am Yours, I am Yours.

Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
‘Cause I am Yours, I am Yours.

The Bethlehemian Rhapsody

Here is the wonderful story of Jesus, the living God.

 

Bouncing on a trampoline!

We left our bikes in France and I miss cycling. Walking is great if the weather is nice. What else could  I do? I suddenly remember that we have a rebounder at home. Doing some research on how many calories I could lose I discovered that there were more benefits! The NASA  found that 10 minutes bouncing on a trampoline is a more efficient cardiovascular workout than over 30 minutes of running. When the astronauts were tested while running on a treadmill, the G-force measured at the ankle was over twice what it was at the back and head. This means that the foot and leg absorb much of the force when running, which can explain the higher rates of foot, shin and knee problems from running (especially running incorrectly). On a trampoline, the G-force was almost identical at the ankle, back and head and at a lower level than that of the G-force at the ankle on a treadmill. This shows that rebounding can exercise the entire body without excess pressure to the feet and legs. Source

The report states that “for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.”

Varied benefits!

In addition to weight loss, those looking to improve their fitness level can reap varied benefits from a trampoline. Jumping on a trampoline is an aerobic exercise that uses the whole body, just like jogging or cycling. However, unlike running or walking, it’s a low-impact exercise. As a result, your joints are far less susceptible to injury or fatigue. Other benefits include muscle toning, balance and coordination.Source

Here are the numbers!

During a 30-minute basic, low-intensity trampoline exercise session, a 135-pound (61.4 kg) person can expect to burn around 145 calories, a 150-pound (68.2 kg) person burns 160 calories and a 185-pound (84.1 kg) person burns 200 calories. These figures are on par with low-impact aerobic activities. The amount of calories you’ll burn in a 30-minute session depends on a few factors including your current weight and the intensity of the exercise.

How to maximise the amount of calories you’ll burn!

To burn more calories on a trampoline, increase the intensity by jumping higher, running in place or engaging your arms.

So now that i know how safe and useful trampolining is, i will have to get disciplined and do some everyday perhaps.. We shall see!

Do you have a trampoline at home and do you use it? What is your favorite sport?
