I have been working on a book for BRF for nearly a year now, and my deadline is approaching!
This means I’ll have less time to share things with you good people over the next month, but I hope to be able to post a little something from time to time when I can.
Instead, I shall be sitting at my writing table – it’s a lovely ’60s pine one that was my family kitchen table before being passed on to me. Many meals have been eaten off it, and veggies chopped and pastry rolled. It also bears the marks of art projects and homework frustrations which I could sand down, but really don’t want to.
The view from the table is the picture you see here – it’s a little distracting. Although I haven’t had my camera ready to take pictures, so far today I have seen blackbirds, a robin, and even, briefly, a kestrel at the birdbath. I think the kestrel is watching for smaller birds…..
Today, I am revising a chapter on Jesus’ saying “I AM the bread of life”, thinking about the crowds that were fed by the side of the lake, and what it might mean to be nourished by God. It is a wonderful thing to be able to do, and it is also wonderful to be able to stretch my legs and think outside, with all that beauty and life around.
Thank you for your patience, and I’ll try to post something soon!
