As you know, if you read my rambles, I am reading from The Message in the morning.
Today one verse, in Romans 8, lept out at me :-
"Nothing fazes us because Jesus loves us."
So, why do I keep going round in circles? One verse sums up my faith!
Yesterday we started our servive with a verse I knew very well, as it is the motto verse of The Crusadors, who I was a member of from age 12 - 18.
"Let us run with patience, the race set before us.
Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith"
Help me to always remember to focus my eyes on you and not get distracted by things around me.
Help me to focus, and ignore distractions ... especially "that" one (you know what I mean)
Help me to focus on your eternal love,
As I had spent the last year filling your f-list with a photo a day, I have tried to avoid spamming you ... but decided that a Jiffy-Spam didn't count.
So, here are some pictures I took of the little man over the weekend.
I just love this ... a James-head tilt, and a halo!

So, hope that Jiffy cheered up your Monday morning!
Just thought I would point you to this item in my news alerts - here
Last week luckster25 did a nostalgic post about her past - and "challenged" me to do the same! One main problem is that she is 21, whereas I'm 48, however, I've decided to give it a go.
As you can see if you read her post here she listed some memory that made each year special. Any of my friends who haven't read it, but are James fans must see her age 12 memory, btw.
Anyway - here goes. Just remeber that as my birthday is halfway through the year, you may find that things overlap in year date - but the link is my age!
The reason I decided I would give it a go is actually because I do have a memory of being a year old. I had always thought I was 3, but when I googled, I found I was a year old ... and weirdly it is exactly 7 years before another signifificant step in my life ....
Year 0 - No, I don't remember a thing, but I can assure you I celebrated my first birthday with a black eye ... that I had given myself 2 days previously!
Year 1 - ( Collapse )
Wow - I made it all the way through!
Don't know whether I have proved I haven't done much with my life - but I suppose I could have just cheated and listen the injuries I have had!! Anyway - Hope you enjoyed my life's summary!
