Sit down on the grass

Grass is everywhere isn’t it! In England we have lots of grass and I live in the North East near the countryside so we have loads of it. I remember particularly in my earlier years of being a Christian that I would sit in the middle of our back garden on the grass and I…

Christmas Today and Everyday

“Why is Lorraine writing a blog about Christmas in February?” I hear you ask. Would you prefer to read about New Year’s resolutions and holiday plans rather than Christmas? I wonder. Is this how it is for you? Is Christmas now far from your mind or does the meaning of Christmas stay with you throughout…

All Sorted for Christmas?

Two days before Christmas my friend asked me if I was all sorted for Christmas? It was early on the morning and I was sat in my living room with a cup of tea in hand and my pen and journal in the other as I considered what I was being asked. The Christmas tree…

Good Morning and Good Night!

Are you a morning person or a night person? I am definitely a morning person. If I wake up too late, I feel like I have missed out on something. I find it very difficult to lie in bed although when I make a deliberate decision to stay in bed longer and just rest and…

Making Room to Let the Light In

I moved house earlier in the year and when I came to put up my Christmas tree up, I realised that I didn’t have enough room. I could have chosen not to erect the tree but for me this is a way of welcoming Jesus into my life at Christmas, so I chose to move…

831 – Eight letters, three words, one meaning

Have you worked out what it means? I love you! Don’t take it personally, I am sure you are a lovely person but whether I love you or not is debatable. Three words. I love you. So easily said but what do they really mean? Do we use them so loosely that they lose their…

Cat Amongst the Pigeons

Imagine a flock of pigeons all happy and content feasting on their favourite seeds and corn. Unknown to the pigeons……a cat has been watching and waiting for an opportunity to pounce on them, hoping to secure a meal for itself. Just when they thought they were not going to be disturbed the cat decides to…

It’s all in hand

Sometimes life is an uphill struggle and we need assurance that it will be okay in the end, even if it is not okay now. Wouldn’t it be a great feeling to be able to say ‘It’s all in hand’? ‘In hand’ has a metaphorical rather than a literal meaning. ‘It’s all in hand’ means…
