November can be one of those dreary months weatherwise, dull, misty and damp, but on a late afternoon walk this week the sky certainly made up for it
and have you ever had one of those weeks where the daytime calender for the coming week looks almost empty and then......
Denise drops in on Saturday to invite us to Sunday lunch after house church.....
then Jane E-mails to see if we can get together for coffee on Monday.....
then Maria wonders if we can get together Tuesday
(Tuesday happened to be the one day of the week we had booked)
having a couple of evangelist friends from Ohio visiting so......
a morning spent with Maria at her home on Wednesday.......
then at a meeting on Wednesday evening Gerry wonders if it is possible to link up for tea on Thursday afternoon....
followed by Marion who suggests Thursday or Friday for tea and a catch-up.
Friday became the time for tea and catch-up at my house where we were unexpectedly joined by Lorraine.
Marion suggested it was like waiting for a bus
No sign of a bus and then they all come at once!!
Then there is the unwelcome visitor who terrorises our fish
and then having a birthday this month (although not this week)
there was the welcome visit of the post man twice who brought
gifts from 2 blogging friends
The above came from Sara and the paper of which her card is made contains seeds for wild flowers.
The book tells what it would have been like to sit at the feet of Jesus and learning first hand about his kingdom. Be imersing oneself in the culture, prayers and feasts of first century Jews, one can enrich their undersatnding of the Bible and of Jesus.
The second came from Teresa This book portrays the inspiration and history of 25 of the most popular hymns. It features the sites where they were composed and takes one on a journey across England and Wales and highlights the places that gave birth to Christianity's most inspiring and unforgetable music.
There is an accompanying CD of all the hymns featured
So a heartfelt thank you to both Sara and Teresa
and not forgetting some cards I made this week
I'll return to Cambridge in my next post
