I am no longer my own, but yours

I am no longer my own, but yours.
Your will, not mine, be done in all things, wherever you may place me,
in all that I do and in all that I may endure; 
when there is work for me and where there is none;
 when I am troubled and when I am at peace.

Your will be done when I am valued and when I am disregarded;
 when I find fulfilment and when it is lacking; 
when I have all things, and when I have nothing.
I willingly offer all I have and am to serve you, as and where you choose. 
Glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
 you are mine and I am yours. 
May it be so for ever.
Let this covenant now made on earth be fulfilled in heaven.
 In the name of Jesus-Christ, our saviour. Amen.

Have a blessed evening. Your sister in Christ. N.


Holocaust Memorial Day: 27 January

There is a pledge you can sign on the HMD website: sign our pledge to make your commitment to ending discrimination. Holocaust Memorial Day provides the opportunity for everyone to learn the lessons from the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in the subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur and  Srebrenica.

Let us pray for a peaceful solution to every world conflict so that those atrocities never happen again, in Jesus-Christ. Amen. A verse comes to my mind: Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 


C S Lewis' conversion to Christianity

Discovering new blogs is always exciting. This afternoon, as I was researching something completely different on google.com I saw the following title: 73% of Protestant pastors in America reject evolution. Not a surprise in itself really. Then I started to read a few more posts on that same blog: through the wardrobe , especially a post on Luther (Martin Luther on authority in the Church) that I found very interesting. Next, I land on this blog: gloriadeo. I found a clip of a documentary on CS Lewis describing his conversion. I have only read a few books written by CS Lewis so I was very intrigued. I share this clip with you. Too many distractions ...are definitely a good thing! Do you agree? I will now resume my lesson planning. Blessings.


Happy New Year 2012

to all of you who read this blog. May the Lord bless you richly!
If it is your first time visiting, a warm welcome to you, I hope you will enjoy your tour, leave a comment and come back.
 Have you had time to formulate your new resolutions? Steven makes us laugh when he declares in a very serious voice that his resolution is not to eat any ice-cream (for example) until the end of the year. I must add that he says that on the 31st of December at 6 p.m. Well we find it funny..So generally speaking we have given up on making resolutions.!
Today we took Camille to the station as she is going back to uni to do an internship for a few weeks. Then we went for a walk in Doxey park for an hour. It was lovely to share a quiet moment... trying to skip the puddles, avoid skidding on the mud and ultimately sit in the hide to observe a few seagulls arguing over..well, it was difficult to say why!
I have resumed reading 'The Discipline of Grace' by Jerry Bridges. For those of you who have not read it, let me quote a bit of the summary on the back page: Being a Christian is more than just coming to Christ. It's about growing and becoming like Jesus.. I'll say no more. I have just started Chapter 5, the discipline of Grace, concept based on Titus 2: 11-12 ..Let me know if you have read that book too!
I also discovered a new song.
