Changing English Weather.

so far today, weather wise we have had, Gorgeous clear blue sky first thing, followed by rain, then another clear blue sky. Right now there is lots of grey clouds, but I am sure in an hour it will be lovely and sunny.

Farmers fear unkindly May
Frost by night and hail by day
June just rains and never stops
Thirty days and spoils the crops
In July the sun is hot
Is it shining? No, it's not
August cold, and dank, and wet
Brings more rain than any yet
Bleak September's mist and mud
Is enough to chill the blood
Then October adds a gale
Wind and slush and rain and hail
Dark November brings the fog
Should not do it to a dog
Freezing wet December then:
Bloody January again!

Jesus Empowers women..

Whilst at the Momentum festival this year. I attended quite alot of the seminars, which were brillaint. My favourite was by a lady called Danielle Strickland, It was a great talk about Jesus and his love to see women liberated and not be oppressed, by church legalism and doctrine, but to actually walk completely and freely in his plans. The seminar was so good I went straight out to the bookshop, and brought the book, to get deeper in her thoughts on this subject.

It is fabulous.

Danielle herself also is pretty feisty. She is part of the salvation army, an social justice fighter, and basically a kick ass women. She ended up a few years ago, getting the salvation army to have a stall in a sex convention and champoin the cause of human sex traficking.

Her book and this topic, has really started to get me thinking about my place in Gods church, and my church's perception of where they think I fit and do I agree ? and more importantly what does God say about it.

From this I have started to read lots of other books, and its amazing the things you find about the oppression of women in church history when you start digging.

I have a feeling this is going to be a topic I will be grappelng with for some quite some time. But I am loving discovering and educating myself in the area. If you get a chance to read her book do, it will definatley challenge you.


Start this day sun-washed.

'There's more: God's Word warns us of danger
      and directs us to hidden treasure.
   Otherwise how will we find our way?
      Or know when we play the fool?
   Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!
      Keep me from stupid sins,
      from thinking I can take over your work;
   Then I can start this day sun-washed,
      scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.'

-psalm 19:11-13
