Oh, and just so you know; I don’t like being referred to as Liz anymore. I am not going to explain, even if you ask. So Elizabeth or Lizzie it is. Okay?

‘Where you treasure is, there your heart will be also’

July 10, 2009

Matthew 6:21. Simple huh?

“If you esteem recognition, then ambition will take charge of your life. If you esteem money, then greed will take charge of your life. If you esteem pleasure, indulgence will take charge of your life. But if you esteem heaven, service of others in Christ’s name will take charge of your heart.”

“The best thing about being a missionary is the spiritual blessings we receive from doing the work of the gospel. This is measured by the fact that we live in a community that loves and supports one another. It comes out in people’s lives as they live to serve, rather than accumulate a whole lot of stuff. Imagine what benefits we gain from living in such a community, being with a group of people where serving God is more important than getting a good education, where serving people is more important than a career or a bigger house, where our children live in an environment where it is normal for people to spend their whole energy working for God’s kingdom.”

David Cook, The Unheeded Christ; Jesus Demands Serious Obedience, Fearn, Christian Focus Books, 2008. Chapter 5.

Loving the herd

July 7, 2009

Ice Age 3

Love it. I can’t make a comparison with the previous two, but I just love that herd. The way they look out for each other. Brilliant.

Might try and see it in 3D sometime… scary!

Victoria asked me to be her Bridesmaid today! Matthew asked for her hand in marriage whilst on holiday in Mexico last week and they are to be wed on 12th June 2010. I am very excited for them.

I slept for 3 hours this afternoon; didn’t feel much better when I woke up, if I’m honest. Then ate tea with Dad, and have just put a Parkin cake in the oven for Keswick. I am going you see. I would like to feel better than I do, but one day at a time…
