“ let it snow! ”

don't you just love snow days?!

a few blobs of the white stuff and the country grinds to a halt - classic!

got a bit wound up yesterday though - anyone else see the guy on the news saying that we're a third world country because public transport struggled for one day?

reminded me that most of us don't know we're born, let alone how blessed we are not to actually be living in third world conditions...

Ever get disappointed with yourself? Making those resolutions that come back to bite you in the backside, cos you never manage to keep them?

So I slipped and failed at my ' I'm going to read loads of Bible every day...' resolution, and at my 'pray for half an hour each day' resolution...

ho ho ho and all that - it's been a hectic few weeks back from paternity leave for me - lessons on Marriage and the Family at County Upper last week and this, lots of assemblies on Thankfulness, The X-mas Factor (would you vote to keep brussels sprouts in?!) and Anticipation, the last few Rock Solid clubs before the end of term and then, of course, having to 'endure' the Christmas youth workers meal (what a shame...!)

35 Rock Solids, 12 lessons, 7 assemblies, 2 Zones, 5 CUs and 2 radio interviews later... I'm still enjoying it! It's been a brilliant start, with things building nicely and plenty of new opportunities to get stuck into.

Yesterday we held our annual review. It was great to look back on a year of God's goodness, and look forward to what he has in store for us during this academic year.

We're trying to build a house for Him, not based on our great ideas but on what He wants us to do, where He wants to take things, how He wants things to come together...

it's been a great first 9 days for me with BCY - so many opportunities are opening up already! how best to take advantage of them is the next challenge, and also how do you start to say no when every chance is so precious?

so far for this term...
