Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.

The wedding cake

The Wedding Cake

A couple was arranging their wedding and asked the bakery to inscribe the wedding cake with 1 John 4:18 which reads “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”

The bakery evidently lost, smudged or otherwise misread the noted reference, and beautifully inscribed on the cake John 4:18 ... “For you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband.”

~ I found this joke quite funny, hope you do too.
I'm about to go to our morning service, have a blessed Sunday.

Despicable me : a family film

Tonight, we, that is Imogen, her friends and I, sat down comfortably with a few nibbles and watched Despicable me and found it adorable and . Set in a techno world, it is the story of a thief (Gru) who wants to steal the moon as a way to impress his banker and maybe his mum. Another younger and more successful villain is in competition with him. As Gru (our anti-hero) keeps surveillance on Victor's home, he realises that three kiddies selling biscuits are allowed to get in the 'fortress'. As it turns out, Gru wants to use the three loving orphans and ends up adopting them just for his selfish purpose. However there is a twist ...I am not saying any more.
Have you watched this film? Did you like it? Let me know. Blessings.

Spring is here to stay!

Yesterday morning, I was on the phone to my auntie Rolande who lives in Bar-sur-Loup, north of Nice (south of France) and the first thing she said was it was too hot! 30 degrees Celsius. Wonderful, I declared..enviously. Here, the temperature was 20 degrees which is quite warm for April! In the afternoon, we took a stroll by the canal and noticed that the water was fairly high. A few barges were stationed by the bank, their owners either engrossed in a novel while sunbathing or eating outside in the field while their dog was on guard on the péniche.
Steven decided to walk by the river and crossed through the woodland that looked thick. Cowardly, I did not follow him but went back on my steps looking for an opening along the hedge. There was a small gate. As I was walking towards the river I heard him exclaim a loud ' Oh No' His right foot had sunk in a muddy watery patch! Still a few minutes later we saw a bird flying above the canal: it could well have been the elusive king-fisher! We have had a wonderful walk! Praise the Lord.
Note, the photo of the king fisher is on this website:

Running slowly...

This week, I have found pleasure in running slowly. Let me explain, in the evening before total dark falls, I have set out and gone jogging for no more than half an hour. I find it hard to keep going but once I am out, I have to persevere. It is so hard though simply because in the winter I hibernate and lose any interest for exercises apart from the odd sessions in the gym so I become so unfit. However spring triggers in me the need for outside activities, i.e. biking, running or walking. In the last two years or so, I have suffered from a bad back, it could happen anywhere, anytime! it was so unpredictable so I started to have stack of paracetamol or ibuprofen ( I would alternate) in my handbag, pencil-case, school-bag, a bit everywhere! I was told that running was not the best thing to do hence a swift move to biking. This is a new start for me, running again gives me great pleasure. Praise be to God. Amen. Bros and sis, what is your favourite kind of exercise? Do you need to exercise? Do you find it hard to exercise?

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.
