We can treat life how we treat eating toast! We can take it all and shove it and hope for the best. But there is a better way and, having a beard, has made me more aware of the need to bread my toast into smaller pieces; any of us would do well to break up our lives into smaller pieces too.
There are always issues to face in life. Sometimes we can pretty much work them out as we go. Sometimes, we need a manual. Or, in the case of the new video editing software we’re now using, lots of time spent watching YouTube videos kindly made by others!
As a slight caveat, this is the first video edited with some new video editing software we’re now switching across to. I think it’s improved various elements of both the editing and the videos you can watch that we make.
I sent a quick message to a friend. I’d fixed a bin. He was a mechanic, so I told him what I’d managed to do, with my own hands and some ingenuity (and some super glue and cable ties). I also took the opportunity to check on how he is doing. He is a good friend, and someone who had given all for his country, and pays the price of that sacrifice today.
Jesus will return one day. It states it in the clearest of terms at the end of the bible, but also all the way through the bible too. Jesus IS coming back, and there WILL be a judgment made of those who are going to heaven, and those who are going to hell.
Our kitchen has a sensor which enables the lid to raise, and hold in place – open – at just the swipe of your hand. Or your butt if you back towards it. It really isn’t fussy!
Our sensor bin gets used often and, as it gets used, the batteries eventually get tired and give up their efforts. We put in hew batteries, or freshly recharged batteries, and it becomes all spritely once more.
In our home we bought, quite a while ago, a battery operated sensor bin. Some friends had one and, once we’d used their sensor bin, we knew we wanted one too. However, as is often the way, the engineering to keep it at a lower price, was not as good as the idea.
Halloween – is it a good thing or a bad thing to celebrate Halloween? I’ve heard both sides of the argument! So what do I think? What is the position of the BerryBunch.family Ministry – that reaches out to families all around the world?
In this 3rd part of this look at The Trinity, wind is the basis of the analogy. Wind is really important to growing trees. All that pushing and pulling actually helps the tree grow stronger roots. Take away the wind, and the tree can grow only so tall before it falls over.
In this second part of a 3 part series – all about the Trinity – we use the example of a Fire Chief, Firefighter and Fire Alarm. We need the Fire Alarm to alert us to danger, the Firefighter to come rescue us, and the Fire Chief is needed because we need someone with more experience, who can sustain a much wider viewpoint.
It’s hard to explain the Trinity. For a start it isn’t something you’ll find in your bibles. But the members of The Trinity are very obviously there: it is, at its heart, our human way of seeking to explain the relationship between God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Are you any good at resting? I’m never going to be accused of being lazy. But I could, far more easily, be accused of not resting very well. If I’m in bed I’m either asleep or pretty ill. Simply lazing about does not come naturally to me, so it can be hard for me to properly rest when I do get the opportunity.
It’s good to give gifts to others, and it can be great to receive them. But, some gifts, simply are not what they appear to be and can create more issues than they solve.
Every day we have to make decision whether to push ahead or pull back. It can be as simple as whether we rush into the car park for our daily work, or taking our time to letting someone take our place in the supermarket queue, or jumping in between two people who are arguing. From the simple to the complex, we have to make these decisions.
