Next week I will be on half term break from school (I teach pre school children with special needs) so we are off down to Devon to visit Amy & Andy and our baby granddaughters, I cant wait!
Our eldest daughter Vashti and her husband Martin live in South Africa, they are missionaries, if you are interested please check out their website www.projecto.org.za They were over with their adopted sons Joseph & Jesse for Christmas
Our eldest son Ben works as a photographer in London and our youngest, Dominic is getting married to Alice in September.
I am reading a book at the moment by Warren Wiersbe called 'Be Encouraged' its a study on 2 Corinthians, this is what I read this morning from 2Cor 12:7-8 'The Lord knows how to balance our lives. If we have only blessings, we may become proud; so He permits us to have burdens as well. Paul's great experience in heaven could have ruined his ministry on earth; so Go, in His goodness, permitted Satan to buffet Paul in order to keep him from becoming proud.' We have had a number of difficulites in the past and I can testify to this fact..that God is always in control, He always upholds us through those difficult times and brings us out the other side having learnt more and been able to trust Him more...if we just hang on to the fact that He is the Almighty!
