Verse of the Day – Philippians 2:15

Philippians 2:15

Philippians 2:15

I hope and pray that my children will shine like stars among their generation.

ALWAYS by SWITCHFOOT
This is the start
this is your heart
this is the day you were born
this is the sun
these are your lungs
this is the day you were born

And I am always yours

These are the scars 
deep in your heart
this is the place you were born
this is the hole
where most of your soul
comes ripping out
from the places you’ve been torn

And it is always yours
but I am always yours

Hallelujah!
I’m caving in
hallelujah!
I’m in love again
hallelujah!
I’m a wretched man
hallelujah!
every breath is a second chance

And it is always yours
and I am always yours

A Sunday With A Smile!!!

It feels like the first Sunday in well over a month where I’ve been able to say that I actually feel okay.

I didn’t have to lie today, I didn’t even break into tears and say no, when asked how I was. Okay, I couldn’t really say I felt really good, but the answer “I’m getting there” seemed a lot more fitting.  I felt comforting to hear people comment how good it was to see me smiling again.

Almost all the side effects have worn off now, only when I get tired the jitteriness comes back, it been a bit like that this afternoon, but I can deal with that, it beats feeling sick all the time!

It was a great preach this morning from Guest Pastor Andy Elmes, which was very encouraging and just what I needed to hear, especially after the last few weeks.

I have one more day at work tomorrow, then it’s two weeks off to look after the kids while Victoria is away, which I can honestly say I’m both excited and anxious about in equal measure, but I’ve got plenty of offers of support, so everything should be okay.

I’VE ALWAYS LOVED YOU by THIRD DAY
I don’t know how to explain it
But I know that words will hardly do
Miracles with signs and wonders
Aren’t enough for me to prove to you

Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
Even before there was time
Though you turn away
I’ll tell you still
Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
And I always will

Greater love has not a man
Than the one who gives his life to prove
That he would do anything
And that’s what I’m going to do for you

Walking Away From The Beast

This morning I have had a much better start today, it feels like I am back into my routine, the negativity of the last few days seems to have been walked out of me and I feel like normality has return.

It is the first morning in a few weeks where I have taken a long walk, don’t get me wrong I have walked every morning, at least 4 miles every morning, but I was getting complacent, rather than wake, get up and get out, I was making excuses, pushing that snooze button and generally trying to look for a reason not to go.

But this morning I was out for 5.30am, took the usually route up the hill, around Coddington and back, then rather than turning back for home, continued up the cycle track for a total of 13½ miles in three hours.

The long and the short of it is I feel so much better this morning than I have for a few weeks, the lazy holiday routine was building and I could sense the shadows of the old me beginning to creep up behind me, so this morning I am glad I’ve walked away from them.

So next it’s Church, today is exactly 40 weeks since I walked into Church, nervous, apprehensive and lost, so I am so looking forward to it.

I guess it is also fitting that Lisa from Deep And Wonderful Thoughts chose today to feature my story on her Blog, thank you Lisa for asking me to contribute, I am honoured to be involved.

Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
Even before there was time
Though you turn away
I’ll tell you still
Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
And I always will
(I’ve Always Loved You by Third Day)
