Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Love and organisation.

Sometimes it is pretty hard to juggle with all the things you have to do during the day and spend quality time with your family. If you work full-time the word 'organisation' crosses your mind. The girls and I spent a day in Manchester. We looked for a prom dress for Imogen (GCSE), we ate Tapas, looked at handbags for Cami and relaxed at my friend Dominique's, enjoying a natter over a strong French cup of coffee. 
When our grown-up children go far away for different reasons, it is harder to give them advice or show them our love. Unless you are one of those giants portrayed by Roald Dahl, your arms are not long enough to hug them! I find it difficult to phone my GP for a repeat prescription, and impossible to write letters at a regular interval. I end up feeling pretty guilty and my heart is crying! By now, you must have realised that I miss Camille pretty badly and I can't wait for her to return from Italy. 
Some time ago, I heard from a French cousin I haven't seen for 30 years. Such a phone 'reunion' calls for celebration and I am looking forward for us to meet her and her family.
Tomorrow evening, we are off to Norfolk to spend a week with dad. It will be strange to be in the caravan again! Steven has installed a shower in the 'girls' bathroom and Imogen is over the moon. I have suddenly understood that little things matter somehow! 
Blessings to all my blogger friends. Yours in Jesus-Christ. Nicky.

Friday night humour

One colleague sent us an email full of exam blunders!









At the end of a very good but tiring day, I quickly glanced at the first ones. Tonight I thought some of them would cheer you up too.
Bros and sis in Christ,  have a blessed evening. N.

Skyping

is probably one of the most useful way of communicating with your family members abroad...that is to say when it works.
 Up to now, it was perfect! Recently as the system providers try to upgrade and 'better' the programme, a pop up keeps appearing every time I want to go on the main screen. It asks me if I want to forward the calls to a mobile number etc...and when I try to close this pop up, it will not close. Then if I insist the whole screen has a fit and as you know, goes blurry and says : skype..is not responding...
Let's say that I find it a little bit frustrating!
What is your best way of communicating with your close family and friends abroad?
Have a blessed evening.

This is our God!

By Friday afternoon, I feel absolutely shattered. However I will persevere and do some chores, i.e. hoovering. I looked at the pile of ironing and decided that it could wait until tomorrow morning! And later on I thought I would read my friends' blogs. This is when I discovered the following song! Beautiful! You may know it already.



Have a blessed Friday evening!

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
