Being creative!

Hello all who blog along with me...
Well...I'm sitting in a little internet cafe at the art festival in England....wonderful to be back here! It poured with rain last night but looking a little brighter this morning. Thankfully the tent didn't leak and I had quite a long sleep...which I needed! All of the gang of friends had an early start yesterday morning as we boarded the plane to England. So...all is well with the world!

Have been to some talks...hope to do a lot of stuff today...there's an art exhibition and class later which I'm so looking forward to. Lots of music and some weird things as well - but all good!

I adore sitting outdoors...eating with close friends...makes my little world a better place. What are you all up to over this weekend...please do let me know! time is almost up must look at the festival programme and book some things in!
Bye from a soggy campsite! MOJO

When I say...

When I say "I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I am saved"
I'm whispering "I get lost" that is why I chose this way

When I say "I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need someone to be my guide

When I say "I am a Christian" I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I am weak and pray for strength to carry on.

When I say "I am a Christian" I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say "I am a Christian" I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are too visible but God believes I'm worth it.

When I say "I am a Christian" I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches which is why I seek HIS name.

When I say "I am a Christian" I do not wish to judge.

I have no authority I only know I'm loved.

Soul friends

I love it when someone reads this blog and just get where I'm coming from...they know where I'm coming from because they have travelled that particular path as well! There's no great need to explain why I feel the way I feel...they understand. There's no need to go into detail...because they see the bigger picture. I love that! I feel as I sit here and type these words that people do understand...and that makes me feel good.

I long for authentic conversations...real feelings coming to the surface...honesty...brokenness without fear...healing hands...listening

I will be away from the computer for a few days...going to an arts festival and so looking forward to being creative!!

Have a wonderful time ... and I'll 'see ya' when I get back!

There's something to be said for keeping our big mouths shut! Seriously...being silent at the moment is the most meaningful thing for me. Yes...I love to worship at church...I love to sing...I love to talk (a lot!)...but being quiet is just about the best thing I have been doing this year! There's always a moment - maybe just a split second when thing just 'click'...when - in that silence - you know you are being held in the palm of God's hand...loved and accepted for all that you are. I love that God accepts our wholeness...not just the parts we expose to the world...but all of our shadows as well.

The weekend was great...filled with people I am myself family and friends and some new people as well. Had lunch with a holiday friend - just met last month and we have so much to talk friends are always an adventure...but old friends are always a joy!

I so appreciated all the new comments I've received...LOVE to get them! It's amazing to me the different types of people coming to this site...mums with young 'uns...younger 'cool' folk (HA!)...people going through tough times in their personal lives..people that seem to have the same hopes and fears that I do...all are very welcome and I hope to get to know you a little more. Take off your coat...pull your chair up closer to the fire and I'll get you a wee cuppa tea!! (well....I am from Ireland after all!!).

See you soon....Mojo
