have a great weekend!

Just a very quick hello today as work is extremely hectic and this is the only place I have access to a computer!

I've had some lovely autumny days in N. Ireland autumn just grabs us by the throat and shakes us into submission that the summer (and actually we did have one this year!!) is well and truly over! But there is the benefit of working here in a tree lined avenue...with a duck pond two roads away and the river lagan running around the embankment...sounds lovely and most of the time it is!

I have a busy little weekend ahead - meeting up with family and friends, some nice eating and a cinema journey with my neice...all good!

Lovely to have made some more new chums via blogging...and looking forward to hearing something about their different lives and experiences...

bye for now folks....

Join the dance!

I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right. The movement doesn't flow with the music, and everything is quite jerky. When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead, both begin to flow with the music. It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other. Another word to lead…is to guide and a guide is always welcome – whether it’s for setting up a new computer or looking for a place on map.

Reading on it said....
.....Guidance. When I saw "G: I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i". "God, "u" and "i" dance. "God, you, and I dance. As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust that I would get guidance about my life.

Daily...I have to ask I willing to let God lead?

Went to a lovely Taize service last night with a couple of good friends. So nice to sit - sometimes singing - sometimes just listening - to the Taize praise. The church had set up their communion table with a golden cloth over it and it was so peaceful just looking at the twinkling candles. I would really love to visit Taize sometime - I was speaking to someone after the service who had been there a couple of times and he mentioned just what an effect it had on him! Who knows...maybe I'll get a chance sometime in the future.

Had a lovely coffee stop afterwards catching up with the friends I'd went those times!

Tell me what you've been doing this weekend!

till next time...
