If I were …

If I were a bird that flies, I’d fly up high into the sky. If I were a fish that swims I’d glide through the sea and feel so free. If I were … But, you know what? …

Heart-felt 'worship'?

You really made me realise

Posted on Sat, 07 Sep 2019

You really made me realise why all my family have loved cycling. I missed the boat somewhere when growing up and never got there until on a tandem briefly. The pleasure and refreshment of fresh air at a slight speed really comes across here –...

I had read this and wanted to wait and understand more clearly when there were comments. But what I found powerful were the phrases 'A stinging lock In time tattered, her voice speaks frayed words', but especially that last phrase....

Posted on Tue, 30 Apr 2019

I like the title! There are always those unasked questions! And simple tasks and smells bring back memories and persons so keenly. In Welsh we would say that my grandmoher used 'the notion of the eye not the hand' I think, in measuring her flour...

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2016

Thought-provoking, Jean, and I can empathize with much that is on your mind. As a family, when I was growing up we didn't kiss, hug, or say 'I love you' much, but I think we were at ease with each other and had a warmth of expression in greeting...

This reminded me of when my son was being taught about the 'rules of composition' for music, and I worried he would lose what seemed to be spontaneous and individual intuition for what would make interesting sound. He assured me it wouldn't, but...

Trying to see where you're coming from in this, PT. It's because of the suffering, death, sin, that God is doing something. I know we would like him to sort it all out at ths moment,  but just like the prophecies concerning his first...
