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...

Chuckling when remembering the kids talk at church yesterday morning, Elise managing to pull out to the front a man who rarely comes and tries to be anonymous, in a suit in his fifties? Anyway, firstly she's asking for anyone who knows anyone in Africa or who is from Africa - gets him up the front and then proceeds, in front of a packed full church to manage to call him a eunuch, make him read out loud from a scroll, straddling a bicycle, then giving him a crown and a handbag to wear and calling him a queen and finally getting another man to straddle the bike in front of Him! His face of utter confusion and bemusement... what a funny kids talk!

Brilliant lunch with Bimba and chilling out and watching the last O.C! Sob sob, sunday afternoons will never be the same!

A sermon that challenged me to delight more in the giver than the gifts... the searching question of would i want to go to heaven if God wasn't there? Asking myself what and who i am really about. Being thankful that i am doing this thankfulness year of blogdom, to make sure i don't take for granted the kindnesses of God and His grace each day!

Speaking to Cathra on the phone! She's back on English soil! The excitement of seeing her and Lee on sunday after nearly 2 years!

An exciting text from bimba about what God is doing in her life.

Chuckling to myself as i see the herds queueing round the block to go to Oxford Street Primark! Is it really worth it? Is it really that important to soooo many people that they would endure the crowds and queues?
