Guest post from Mrs W: “Regarding Wet Ugg Boots”

My wife wrote this humorous little ditty, and as I haven't been posting anything much lately due to my January semi-fast from social media, she agreed to let me publish it here.  Please let her know here what you think of it in the comments section below and be nice to her, she is my wife! A silly poem fabricated in my mind during my rainy walk this morning with Albert, a poke at how we can get stressed about silly things! (From a Christian's perspective):It's raining on me Ugg … [Read more...]

Visit My Wife's Photoblog

My better half has finally succumbed. With a cry of "If you can't beat 'em, then join 'em" she has begun her own blog! You can visit her new online home at: am hoping she will still write here from time to time. If you are a fan of her writing, please drop me an e-mail so I can show it to her in an effort to get her to return! In the meantime, she is going to be focusing on her photography hobby on her blog. Most of the family pictures I have published … [Read more...]

He Chose THIS Way . . .

Hi! It's Mrs.W here again! The stage of life I am in currently involves spending a lot of time caring for my lovely 7 month old baby, George. He is now clapping his hands, rolling over, and sitting up. He also has his first tooth! He is such a cute little boy, and we all love him to bits. But he is also very vulnerable. He needs to be watched and cared for all the time, for he has no idea at all how to look after himself and keep himself safe. In Jesus' time I believe many children would die … [Read more...]

BOOK – Shopping For Time by Carolyn Mahaney and Daughters

This is the last day of Mrs. W. as Adrian is back tonight. I recently read the book, Shopping For Time (by Carolyn Mahaney, Nicole Whitacre, Kristin Chesemore, and Janelle Bradshaw). They are also the authors of girltalk, a blog for Christian women. It is written by a mother and her grown-up daughters about "How to do it all and not be overwhelmed." As a mother of five young children, you can imagine I thought this was worth a read!The book is very easy to read and fairly short. It is centered … [Read more...]

My Soul Clings to the Dust

Hi! Mrs. W. here again. When I read this passage this morning, I was reminded of flowers, like in this picture. They are so fragile, so vulnerable, and so utterly dependent upon God for their fleeting lives. Today being the day we remember many who lost their lives in the atrocious terrorist attacks, I am only too aware of how fleeting life can be, and how vulnerable we all actually are. I can imagine the flower saying, "My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word!" My … [Read more...]

Technology and God the Provider

Adrian is away on business for a couple of days, and he has asked me to stand in, so apologies in advance if this is not up to the usual high standard!We had an engineer round to our house today to investigate why our Internet connection has been so erratic. In this day and age many of us have become dependent on technology of this sort to help us organize our lives. We may have all our phone numbers, addresses, photos, accounts, records, recipes, correspondence, assignments, and other documents … [Read more...]

BIBLE BLOGGING – When God Kills People

SIN, PUNISHMENT, and MERCY Andrée here! I have been reading the Old Testament lately, and it started a train of thought which I'd like to share. What caught my attention was not only the number of times God struck people dead, but the reasons given for these occurrences. There are so many occurrences, but I am specifically going to refer to a small portion in the book of Numbers, which I am currently reading.The Lord struck down many with a plague – because they had been grumbling and ' … [Read more...]

FAMILY – Humility and Slavery

Hi, Andrée here again! Being in a household of six, with lots of work to do, I recently found myself in the throes of self-pity. All I ever seem to be doing, I thought, is cleaning up, cooking, tidying, rushing about, laundry, etc etc. In short, I was feeling a bit like a slave. So imagine how I felt when I read the following . . .'"You want to be great?" Jesus is saying. "Well, here's what has to happen. What's required is that you become a servant to others; it means nothing less than becoming … [Read more...]

CD – Valley of Vision and Preaching to Yourself

Hi! This is the other half of Adrian (otherwise known as his wife, Andree).Adrian has spent years trying to encourage me to make contributions to his blog, and I have spent years feeling too busy to be able to do any blogging! But a recent turn of events has meant that I finally have time to put down my thoughts and musings!!Adrian, together with our pastor, Tope, recently had the privilege of visiting Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg. They said that they had a great time and were so touched … [Read more...]

Inspired by female bloggers!

Pigwotflies has inspired me to post on my husband's blog! Adrian and I also recently met Mrs Blogotional and her husband in London and I was very impressed that Mrs Blogotional showed such a keen interest in the blogging scene! I felt spurred on to get more 'in the know' about Adrian's antics in the blogosphere and get to know the lingo etc. I also thought I would like to post occasionally if I can think of something interesting to say. Mrs Blogotional posts some fantastic artwork with scripture … [Read more...]
