A lovely weekend but now Snow!!!!

We had a lovely weekend; On saturday I went to my church's work shop 'Soul Spark' and it was wonderful. It is so nice to be with people who know me as me!
It was the first in a series of 6.. saturday it was:-
* Be still before God... entrust your burdens, concerns and needs to God.
* Remember that God loves you as you are.....calls you by name Isaiah 43.1-2
* Savour the moments.. let it sink into your heart.
* Respond to God from your heart.
The whole thing has given me a new way to read my Bible... and the good thing is they are going to do the rest of the course. I really enjoyed the whole experience

Then sunday after Church we went to visit my daughter and her family in Cambridge.
This is my lovely grand daughter Saskia, My daughter Joanne had had a day off work on friday as she had a sore throat and cough and the extra day home made her look rested... being an Examination Officer in 2 schools in Cambridge is stressful and lately I have seen her look tired so it was lovely to see her looking a lot better. She and Edward cooked a delicious beef dinner and we had apple strudel and ice cream for pud! The diet was forgotten!

Monday we got up to snow, not a lot but it kept coming all day!

I do hope it will get better before sunday as we are due to fly out to Australia on sunday and Heathrow was shut down because of the snow yesterday for part of the day with 100s of flights cancelled!

Sounds like you had a great weekend.

It will certainly feel a little warmer in Australia when you get there.
