Being Open


Our Ned Kelly Grevillea is beginning to flower - taken early this morning


Our Indian visitors have arrived safely. Days and nights are filled with comings and goings, in good ways. Each day they have been sharing at schools or with church groups.

J spoke of many wonderful things at today's morning service - just a few of his words below. 


God sends us to hard places we may not feel ready for. 
All things are possible with God for those who believe.
Don't expect God to work in a certain way, be open to God and His ways.


I smell curry - J's wife, M, and Miss E (21)  are busy in the kitchen, tonight we have an Indian dinner at church and more sharing. I must go and help some more......

Have a wonderful weekend!

Enjoy your fellowship together this evening sharing a delicious curry.
Grevillea's are curious flowers - I remember being fascinated by some I saw growing in Montenegro.

Enjoy your visitors (and the yummy curry). That Grevillea looks almost too perfect - that's the way of nature, I guess.

I needed to read those words today, as I struggle deeply with missing my prodigal son... It's been 2.5 years and we have just learned that baby number 3 is to be born late this year. I miss him so...
