in the hiding places on the mountainside,
show me your face, let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet and your face is lovely.’
Song of Solomon 2:14
How precious is this scripture to me personally and how it thrills me still today, years after the Holy Spirit …

This statement, “The Power of One”, was vocalised by a woman who served the underprivileged youth in her community when she herself was on the receiving end of an act of kindness by a secret millionaire. It declares a great truth.

For a number of months now I have been endeavouring to bring the discipline of exercise back into my life. Like most of us, I do my fair share of walking which I am grateful for, mindful that there are many homebound persons who can’t even make that choice. However I am finding that by …

I have been impacted by a book that I received from a friend entitled ‘Jesus Calling’. As the Holy Spirit so often does in our lives, He moves through another person to minister to our individual spiritual needs.

I have been aware lately of the creative gift God has given me and of course given to you.
Naturally our creativeness may come forth in a completely different shape. This is wonderful. Because God is limitless, we are freely able to be diverse as humans in our expression.

I know like me you will be sighing with relief that the pre-Christmas pressure is a distant memory – but I am sure that the actual joy of the Christmas message and the festivities that surround this most important event in the Christian calendar lingers on.

Recently Graeme and I decided to go to the cinema, a very rare occurrence for us, to see the latest James Bond movie – we had heard that it was good, action packed etc - not me really, but then it was 007 after all, who couldn’t make that allowance.
