How Lush!!!

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things...

A special day with the lovely Kathryn Rogan in Covent Garden, sharing our hearts in the struggles of ministry, the joys, how God IS in charge and has a good plan, and praying together as we head back into the battlefield with our great God going before us and covering us in grace.

Regina being so godly about her job situation

The last two episodes of lost... WHAT??????????????

A great homegroup, understanding more of the majesty of Jesus, from Colossians 1:15-23, and realising i have got Jesus in a box, a small box, when he's actually huge and massive and created all things, all things were created for him, he sustains everything, he keeps grass being grass every second of the day, for every blade of grass everywhere! And all the 'alls' in that passage that show he is fully God and so he is SOOOO gonna sustain His church, and in being this great God, yet he died for his enemies, us, as our backs were still turned! Our fingers still up at him! What love, mercy and grace... mindblowing!!!

A busy sunday, full of people, just how i love them!

Straight onto my God sons 2nd birthday party. Bethany Roberts asking why i am there, because " your so old!"

Straight over to the student bbq, loads of students there, mainly nonxian! Great to get to know them and say 'Look, church is here for you!'

Discussing Gods Sovereignty and our responsibility with Rach and Han afterwards, and it blowing our minds.

First day off in ages!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh! Praise God for rest, He's so right, we need it!

Slept in, and then got completely pampered by my yummy husband! He took me to Marks and sparks at knightsbridge to get a picnic, we had a quick peek in harrods then went over to hyde park, to the little rose garden he proposed to me in and ate to our hearts (bellies) content! All in glorious summer hot sunshine!

Then he took me to Harvey Nicks, and bought me gorgous perfume! For no reason! And tonight, he's even advocating that we watch The notebook! (SOOOOO SLUSSSSSHHHHY!)

What a man!
