With continuing rain and everything so wet and flooded here I thought a collage of the Summer garden would be nice
I want to take this opportunity to wish all my blog friends and visitors a Very Happy New Year and prayers that God will richly Bless you in 2013
New Year's Eve was certainly a Blessed time.
Beginning with a great meal next door for around 50 people plus 14 children
followed with a time of fun and team games.
We then had the biggest firework I have ever seen
(only needed one!)
We then moved into a time of praise and worship and sharing the words that God had given us for this coming year
before a time of prayer leading up to midnight.
Has anyone heard the sound of 50 or more 'poppers' going off together indoors - deafening I can tell you - not to mention
the smoke and the mess
Then it's hugs and kisses and encouragement all round (can take a while with so many people!)
The Blessings did not end there,
a gorgeous lie-in and to wake to sunshine and blue skies
(almost forgotten what they looked like)
and a bracing walk in the park.
All now remembering one of our community who was unable to be with us and went home to be with her Lord during the night
