This week has been cold! I haven’t risked running but decided in addition to the snow angel I would do something I hadn’t done in years-make a snowman! Trying to make a snowball bigger by rolling it around the garden proved pretty ineffective so I resorted to piling it up. Then the eyes wouldn’t stay in! Hardly a work of art but a 60@60 creation. I’ve seen some amazing snow sculptures (love to see your pictures) but this isn’t one of them! Nevertheless, it’s good to know that with all our imperfections and idiosyncrasies our creator stands back, looks at us and loves what He has made.
I’ve also been busy preparing for the latest round of greetings cards deliveries-the new stock should arrive tomorrow. I shall announce a bit more about Lent at the weekend-nothing dramatic but ideas welcome. The sixty day beard period will come to completion in early March and I’m already planning the culmination with the rainbow 🌈 beard. The first dyes arrived today..any suggestions on how best to do it are welcomed.
I am thinking today about a Pastor called Raymond Koh who was abducted in broad daylight four years ago in Malaysia 🇲🇾 His grieving family are still looking for answers. I remember sharing a meal with the man who Pastor Koh was travelling to meet up with when he was abducted; who told me the feelings of guilt that he experienced. If they hadn’t scheduled the meeting would Raymond have been safe? Pastor Koh is one of thousands of Christians abducted whose family and friends wonder where they are; who are hit with ransom demands or who are threatened if they pursue the case. Do remember the individuals today and Open Doors partners as they seek to support the families. Your contributions help make this possible.
