Expectation of Yon Kings

Wednesday 6th January

So how wise were these kings or magi that visited the baby/toddler Jesus.

They brought gifts of significance and meaning, they followed this star…..

….but they went to a palace and ask a tyrant who had no new offspring. Why didn’t Herod snaffle their treasures?

What was their Epiphany when they eventually reached their destination?




Pray for Me.

27 April 2015

My Greek angel would come into St. Peter’s. She talked of God’s spirit always being with her. 

She would press a bar if soap or a carton of cooked mince into my hand. Usually there would be opportunity to pass such gift on before the day was over.

Her visits have ceased, she moved out of town and into care.

The last time I saw her she promised to pray for me.

Easter embodied.

Nine Ladies Dancing

Friday 2nd January 2015


Nine Ladies Dancing are representative of the nine Fruit of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)

To follow up on yesterday’s thought, I wonder how you might define ‘blessed’? Paul reminds us that God has filled the Bible with promises for the changed person. He has given us promises that will never change and will always be there for the person who has changed through the power of Jesus Christ.

These promises we are to cleanse ourselves from all things of the past. We are to concentrate on habits which are grace laden. Allowing God to make us holy as we serve Him in respect and love.

Look for, pray for the ‘Ladies Dancing’!

Seven Swans A-Swimming

Wednesday 31st December 2014


Seven Swans A-swimming point to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: prophecy, ministry, teaching, exhortation, giving, leading, and compassion (Romans 12:6-8; cf. 1 Corinthians 12:8-11)

Remember your Christmas gifts. What did you appreciate most? Which will be the most useful? Seven Swans A-Swimming represents the gifts that can shape and mould us.

When we recognise God within us and the gifts that are potentially ours to inherit, well the New Year is monumental, the skies the limit.
