Looking Forward

hi Friends.

2008 a year of hope.

I hope I get well soon so I can launch into this year and start looking forward to all it will bring.

I am so bored being stuck at home sick. Knowing my friend Meg is just a few miles away in Liverpool until the 23rd and I cant get any chance to go see her is so annoying. I had so many plans to show her the joys of our beautiful country but they have gone down the drain.

Meg I am determined that we will meet up before you fly back to the states and I pray that happens sooner rather than later. Someone warn Pizza hut of the oncoming invasion!

I havent made any cards for a month now so I guess I had better get organised and get cracking on my valentines cards for a card swap group I am in. Problem is that inspiration on design is slow coming when you are sick too.

I am beginning the new year with an attempt at something I used to do all the time and found VERY beneficial in my spiritual life.
I intend to memorise the whole of Romans chapter 6 before the end of this month. I only started yesterday and think I have got v1-3 sorted

"What then shall we say, shall we go on sinning so that Grace may increase? by no means! we died to sin , how can we live in it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death?"

Yay I typed that from memory and then checked it I only had to change two words.

I have let my discipline of memorising the word of God slip, this was something I used to do a lot of when I was younger as I fully believe that this is a way of allowing God to speak to us, he brings these things back to our consciousness when we need them (John 14:26) and I do believe that by commitiing his word to memory it helps us to grow closer to him and more lilke him. Now that would be a new year resolution worth making!

Well I better go and do something useful so bye for now and God bless you all. May 2008 truly be a year of hope for you and your loved ones.

Feeling any better? I came down with it pretty badly myself, but the worst is over. Just a bit of chesty cough and sinus pressure left. If I don't get to see you this time then we will plan something for June if I make it then. And if not then, well, I will be living here, so hopefully we'll get to see each other fairly often. :)
