A helpful seminar helps me confront and change some behavioural patterns which ahve been doing my head in.

Hearing Brother Andrew speak. challening and powerful.

Spontaneous singing of 'Our God is an awesome God' cut in with Mike Pilav. reading from Revelation. Great rejoicing. Our God is indeed an awesome God!

Despite exhaustion having a water fight at work this evening. Watching the mental processing of one the girls I support trying to work out exactly what her response was to having water thrown over her!

Sunday, August 13, 2006


bacon butties and fresh coffee cooked on the camping stove with ally.

Being all alone in the communion service, amongst 12000 people. None of whom knew me. freedom.

Bumping into some old friends just at the moment when i was beginning to feel lonely as ally had gone and i had no money and no food. The nice friend bought me tea and we went to the evening session together.

Being at Soul Survivor with ally g manning the uccf stand. Marvelling at the grace of God that has bought us where we are today, 3 years on from the last time we stood and worshipped God in the big top together. Totally different lives from what we expected back then. For good and for bad. God is so faithful.

A hair cut. At last.

Thursday, August 10, 2006


Today, again, was a day of cool...

Work, finally, a good day at work. Took a couple of guys to muck out the stables and then ride then took another girl to the gym. 10.5 hrs of fun work and no punches, threats, anything.

Pod managing to get me into soul survivour to help man the UCCF stall for the weekend. Just when I needed to get away most. Means I get to go to Soul Survivor twice in a fortnight and for free this weekend!

Going for a drink with a good friend and being relieved that things I have heard aren't true. That she is loving Jesus and wanting to love him more. It's amazing how distorted things can get....

Phew, what a long 365!

I was going to write about lots of cool things that happened today but then...

driving home from work at 10pm, i rounded a corner and there, peaking through the dark blue, dusky sky was the hugest, yellowy moon. Huge.

Of all the cool things that happened today, that topped it.

Walking in after training to find the house turned into major fudge production line. My brother and a friend perched on stools stirring a huge jam vat of fudge surrounded by rum, condensed milk, choclate, name it! They made tray after tray of fudge...what on earth are we gonna do with all that?!

After being ill all night, again, and not going to work, again, at 6am I saw an old episode of 'Neighbours' on UKTV Gold. Back in the day when Susan had long hair but sadly when her and Karl had broken up. Back in the day when Connor was thinner, as was Lyn and the original Joe was about town. There existed the likes of Flick and Michelle and Delta Goodrem had penned the first few lines of 'that' song...ah, happy days.
