Wow, that was well hard... I guess that when you get asked a question its hard to answer from your heart.

Hope you all had a great christmas. I've now recovered from raging tonsilitis, and will be in Luton soon.

Am ill

Immune system is shot to bits. Doctor told me this morning.

I go to all the trouble of changing my doctor from Billericay to Cardiff, and in an instant I'm back in Billericay seeing the doctor who I saw when I left Billericay for the first time three years ago!!

Oh, and I had the same problem.

If it carries on like this I shall be in hospital having my tonsils out, joy.

Well back to bed for me as there is nothing else major to report!

Nearly home

Well, I'm half way through the penultimate working day of the year.

Having lots of fun finishing off little taks for the year and making sure I have no work to do when I leave the office tomorrow.

Had a review a week a go and its all good for the moment. Time table is definitely changing, so hopefully be doing more youthwork and less random things.

And you know what I finish with this year: admin!


But can't complain, one day I'll write a report on my spiritual gifts and you'll understand why!

Oh and by the way, the trainees office was pitted against two other offices this morning in the decorating competition, and we won!!! How fantastic is that!?!

Maybe I should stop opening my posts with random Welsh words.

This one is Christmas.

I'm having problem stringing sentences together. Welsh is just a backwards to me as German is, or in fact any other language that is not my own. How arrogant am I?

Feel free to answer that, I'm not afraid!

Or Love if you are english.

This isn't going to be a soppy post.

Just wanted to say I've seen a lot of people do a lot of things they love doing and I have loads of respect for them.

The teacher who continues to teach even though he's got searing pain running up and down his leg.

The girl who hangs out with her friends knowing that her back really hurts and she should be in bed.

The youth leaders who tirelessly work through 4 hours of prep to produce a meal for 25 people.

We all do tough things for love, ultimately displayed through Jesus dying on the Cross.

I now know a little bit of the pain felt when man rejects God time and time again. It's so painful.

It's been long

Another long week over with and just a step closer to Christmas.

The good news is I have an advent calendar, it's a non-chocolate one and tells the christmas story. Apparently thats no good, I could argue with that a lot, but I don't think I'll bother right now, you get the idea.

It was Rachel's birthday yesterday, we had a laugh and a good meal. We were gonna go outdoor ice staking but lack of people meant it wasn't worth us going.

I also had to say good bye to two good friends. It's funny how some one can affect your life in such a short space of time, which is made more intense by the fact you only see them twice a week.

I've bonded really well with everyone here in Cardiff and I'm so glad we have God in common, with out that I think it would be a big struggle.

I've started looking for jobs, so I'm about to go and enquire... keep praying for me!
