The Commission

Acts 22:14-15 (New International Version)

New International Version (NIV)

14"Then he said: 'The God of our fathers has chosen you... to know his will... and to see the Righteous One... and to hear words from his mouth. 15 You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen... and heard.

It's Sunday morning and I am reveling in the solitude; the silence broken only by the cosy sound of two ticking clocks.

The rest of the household is sleeping and I have the luxury of undisturbed quietness to meditate, think, pray and listen to God. Even as a child I used to love getting up early on Sunday mornings and having the house to myself, luxuriating in the peace and stillness before the day began for others too.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training.

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
