Day one

January 1, 2008
I hope the New Year is going well for you, mine can only get better!
 I’m determined to keep on top of the housework this year (again) and as I sit here, Chef has gone off to his brothers for the afternoon with the four children, leaving me to get things done. I’ve a mountain of washing to get through, floors to wash and the oven to clean before I can put the beef in for dinner, and it’s after 4pm!

Happy Birthday Spud!

My Mum

June 9th 1929~June 22nd 2002

I love you because you understand, dear
Every single thing I try to do
You’re always there to lend a helping hand, dear
I love you most of all because you’re you.

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you ’cause you’re you.

I love you because my heart is lighter
Every time I’m walking by your side
I love you because the future’s brighter
The door to happiness, you open wide.

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons
But most of all I love you ’cause you’re you…

 

Christianity…is it for me?

October 18, 2006

   image9.gif  I often look through the local newsletter and ponder on Christianity. I had a strong belief in God before I very tragically lost my brother, it weakened once more when my Mum died of cancer in 2002. I questioned His reasons over and over, in fact, this is the second time I’ve blogged about my dwindling faith. I suppose there is a reason as to why God takes those we love, but accepting His reasons have been very difficult for me. My Mother had a very strong faith in God, but then she needed to have, her husband, my Dad, was a very difficult man to live with! She also had eight children with him. Losing the youngest must have been very hard for them. This is why I feel God must have pulled her through.
