Ceal - That's really great. I'm fairly sure I know that song but I can't quite recall how it goes.

A very Happy Christmas to all of you and may God bless you abundantly at this time.

Although it is a time for rejoicing there is a great sadness about Christmas and I'm not referring to current events even though there is much sorrow there, it's that many many people don't know what Christmas is really all about, that many do know but don't understand it or don't care, many more know but don't believe it or want to do away with it altogether.

My personal sadness is that for years I haven't had the courage to tell folk what it's really all about for fear either of offending them or of what their reaction might be even though what it's about has everlasting consequences. I want to bring my silence to an end and if anyone is offended so be it, it won't be me but what I say that may cause offence. It's this simple message:


GOD LOVES YOU.

Yes I'm shouting it, read it again and again, GOD LOVES YOU. He loves you more than you can imagine and the realisation of that is the most marvellous thing that can happen to you, whoever you are.

Every blessing

Well I actually got out there this morning albeit somewhat later than usual. The amazing thing is that my last three runs have turned out to be almost carbon copies of each other: 45:49, 45:47, 45:46 for the same route.

Good morning

nrd (unplanned)

Went to bed before 11pm to get in a good night's sleep. Lay there awake until sometime before 2am and had just dozed off when Angela, who was just coming to bed, awoke me to say the lights had gone out and did I think it was a power cut? I didn't because the sockets were still working so I got up to reset the offending circuit breaker although I had no idea what had caused it to trip out. After that I went to sleep waking again at 4.30am my time to prepare go for a run but feeling so tired I couldn't make it. Woke up again at 8am. My third attempt this week will be tomorrow.

One piece of good news is that I beat 7-year-old Nathan at Snap, so I'm not too dusty.

Ceal - The Comfi Cottage is Linda's website but she does have stuff on "noths" as it collects contributors. You can usually tell whose stuff you are buying on there.

Good morning

My prd turned into a nrd as I slept through to 6:40 despite having gone to bed early last night. (prd=planned run day)

Now we're looking forward to having no.3 grandson for the day while his mum, our younger daughter Linda's younger son for the day goes out for her belated Christmas shopping; belated through overwork and a bout of bronchitis which is still weighing her down. The overwork was probably at least partly due to the Christmas rush on her website, http://www.thecomficottage.com also her http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/ presence, which combined contributed, I think, to the bronchitis. At the moment this would not be the most encouraging thing to tell her, but we'll be happy to have 7yr-old Nathan for the day and we're just awaiting his arrival.
