Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Big Society in Hixon!


Grow old in the Lord
'Tis sweet to grow old in the fear of the Lord,
When we cease our tasks one by one;
When His strong right hand helps us stand,
Till the last day's labor is done.When His strong right hand helps us stand,
Till the last day's labor is done.
'Tis sweet to grow old in the fear of the Lord;
To live 'neath His loving restraints;
'Tis sweet to grow old in the fear of the Lord;
As life's shadows longer creep;
Till our steps grow slow, and our sun swings low,
He gives beloved sleep!
(Faith in the Future, copied from The Vegas Dive Messenger, January 7, 1966.)

Some time ago, Steven and I went to the luncheon club  in Hixon. 
As it happened it was Ray's 95th birthday and we had a cheerful nutter. 
The atmosphere was so friendly, the roast diner was 'excellent' I was told by the regular folk. 
 The luncheon club welcomes
 the over-60s from Hixon and villages nearby, i.e. there were a couple of pensioners living in Weston.
 It is organised by a team volunteers 
alternate Fridays from 12:00 to 15:00 
and believe me
 it is much appreciated by his patrons.
 May the Lord bless all the participants of this superb example of 'Big Society' in abundance!.In Jesus-Christ, we ask. Amen.

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
