One step, two steps

One step, two steps

Babies have to learn many life skills in their first year or so of life. One of the biggest things they learn to do is stand up on their own and walk. Watching a youngster try this is both exciting and amusing. Parents watch with delight as their child takes those first few stumbling steps. Graduall…

I am always with you

I am always with you

A couple of months ago, I was driving to a friend’s house. It was a really foggy, misty morning. It felt dark and gloomy and depressing.  As I drove however, the mist started to clear. Light began to pierce through the fog, and gradually the darkness and gloominess had been replaced with…

How much do you know?

How much do you know?

Do you think it is possible to know everything? Of course we've all met people who think they do! But is the human brain capable of knowing everything? It is amazing how much some of the world's very clever people do know but even the world's most powerful computers don't know everyt…

Feast or Famine

Feast or Famine

'Enough is as good as a feast' the saying goes. We should feel satisfied with a sufficient quantity of food or anything else for that matter, so that we don't need any more. We've all heard about the statistics that tell us that while rich countries in the West are throwing away surp…

All by myself

People change too. …

Peace, be still!

Peace, be still!

Have you ever stood on a cliff looking out to sea? On a windy day it crashes and smashes against the rocks showing its frightening power and energy. On a hot sunny summer's day it is calm with no waves breaking on its surface. So peaceful and inviting. Our lives are like the sea. Sometimes they…

Tick Tock

Tick Tock

Everything these days is either too fast or too slow. The traffic is too fast if you're trying to cross the road or two slow if you're late for an appointment. Time spent with special friends flies by too fast. Time spent on your own goes far too slowly. Holidays whizz by. Have we got to wai…

Be like a Child

Be like a Child

There is an interesting set of verses in Matthew that talks about how we should be like children - Matt 18:1-5 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and…

As a man thinks so is he

As a man thinks so is he

The Bible says, As a man thinks so is he’.   How we think governs what we say and do and how we speak and act.  And how we think depends on what we allow to enter our eyes and ears and on the company we keep.  We are so easily drawn to what is self-indulgent, titillating, c…
