Extravagant Love

This photo has hung on the wall in my workroom for the past four years. I found it one day in a charity shop (that’s a ‘thrift shop’ for some readers). I hadn’t gone there with any intention of buying anything that day, I was with a friend who enjoys charity shops as much as […]

Tilling the Soil (Life Lessons from My Garden)

There is enough: (A Guest Post, By Roy Leith))

There is Enough It makes me smile every morning. The birds sitting up in the trees waiting for their daily bread.

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” IsaiAh 26:3 NLT ‭‭We could look back on 2020, and even ahead, to the difficult weeks and months that many of us are facing, and ask, “where is God in all this?” Yesterday, I sat on our […]
