Day 13: Read Psalm 139

This is a version of Psalm 139 from the Contemporary English Version of the Bible. God knows us better than we know ourselves, and has been with us right from the start of our lives. God knows all about us, but loves us anyway… You have looked deep into my heart, Lord, and you know […]

Day 12: Pray the paper

Particularly I hate emptying the brown food bin in the kitchen (potato peelings, bits of cabbage, tea bags, carrot tops etc which go in the larger brown bin outside). My husband Niall is religious about recycling and always puts the […]

Day 8: No bitching

Difficult day today – had to take a small baby’s funeral so not really a day for bitching anyway. But how would we define bitching – is it moaning, or being bitchy about someone? I’m taking the first explanation – that it’s all about no moaning. We love a good old moan sometimes, and church […]
