Living in a Field of Hats

some ramblings and reflections on working with students in Herts and Beds.

Sometimes a picture just sums it all up September 18, 2012

Just saw this picture, and although my to do list has slightly different things on it, it really sums up how I was feeling at the start of term … then I was pointed to Psalm 131.

1 My heart is not proud, Lord,
my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me.

2 But I have calmed and quieted myself,
I am like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child I am content.

3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord
both now and forevermore.

A great reminder that there is nothing that I can make happen even if I spend the whole term feeling stressed out. Instead I need to rest in the arms of the One who can and will sustain all things. What freedom!

Waking up from a deep sleep March 14, 2011

Today is March 14th. March 14th!

The last time I took much notice of the date was February 13th. That means that for the last month I feel like I’ve been in a bubble that’s just not quite connected to the real world. A bubble that includes 3 Uni mission weeks and a training weekend for new CU leaders. That’s kept me rather busy and caused various levels of exhaustion (as well loads of encouragements of seeing CUs stand boldly on their campuses for Christ, and seeing non believers think about and wrestle with questions of truth)

However, to celebrate a return to the outside world, a couple of friends and I ventured into lovely (sunny!) St Albans to be tourists for the day today . . here’s some pictures…. (and return to the real world hopefully means the blogging world too!)
