So, tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day...Yay! How many pancakes do you think you'll manage?!

Which means that this Wednesday is the start of Lent.

Last year I gave up facebook and twitter for Lent. This year I'm not sure that I'll give anything up. I like to think that whatever actions I take during Lent are part of the bigger picture and help me to grow and develop my relationship with God, but maybe in a more focussed way.

Do you do anything special for Lent, or give anything up?
How did it impact or develop your faith?

Feeling the love

Photo from here.
It has to be said that I have not really been feeling the love over the last few days. I've been (am still) battling with a bad cold (which I've now passed onto the wee one) and high levels of stress due to various projects and reading deadlines. Some more self inflicted than others! Plus, Phil is now away for two nights and I have a rather large coldsore taking over my upper lip.

All this has led me to feel very sorry for myself. I have thrown a couple of pity parties at my desk...and at home. And when I do that it's best to keep my thoughts to myself because they're usually less than helpful!

I did receive a wonderful card and two lovely gifts from my boys on Tuesday which made me smile, and I will hopefully share (but not the chocolates...I have eaten them already!) And I have also finished the slightly mammoth task of making my mother-in-law's wedding invites...although I have forgotten to take photos of! You'll just have to wait until we receive ours in the post!

I shall hopefully be back to full health and regular blogging soon. Unless I get caught up and distracted by another pity party!

Happy Thursday!

Knowing the God who created you is better than knowing the answers to all your questions

I'm still learning this

It's a good job...

...I don't own an iphone because I'd really struggle to choose a cover!
Check out these lovelies...

...and there are many many many more all from here.

Happy Friday! x

I feel...


Definitely need to spend some time in God's word, soaking in His truth, refreshing my body, soul and spirit.

How do you revive yourself when life has drained you and you feel a bit blah?
