Good morning :-)

Oh my goodness, I didn't post yesterday but really thought I had. So sorry to worry you Vera <3

I am often dodging about with various jobs when posting and can be called to see to my OH. Maybe I forget to pop back here. Sigh..........if I had a brain, I would be dangerous... :-D

I'm here now.

As the coverage of the horrendous fire continues, we hold in our prayers those who have the horrible task of searching those destroyed homes. We pray that they may be given strength of body, mind and soul. Amen.


SuffolkVera Report 15 Jun 2017 10:09

Ongoing thoughts and prayers for all those affected by the recent tragic events. They will need help and support for a long time to come. Sending them all a gentle hug <3

I do hope all is well with you Cynthia. I am guilty of taking you for granted and I expect to see a post from you when I open my iPad in the morning and am concerned when I don't see one. I expect you are simply busy - or maybe even managing a lie-in :-D. I hope that is the case.

Hello all

Such tragic news this morning of the fire in the tower block in London. Unbelievable

Thoughts and prayers are with the families concerned coping with loss and grief.

Praise to the Fire Service who dealt with such harrowing scenes of devastation.


SuffolkVera Report 14 Jun 2017 10:25

It just seems to be one horrid event after another at the moment. We can only hold in our thoughts all those affected by this latest disaster and be grateful for our wonderful emergency services <3


Cynthia Report 14 Jun 2017 07:35

Oh dear Lord! What awful news to wake up to.

As we watch in helplessness, we pray for all those caught up in the dreadful fire in London.

We thank God for the emergency services who are striving to put the fire out and for those who are trying to rescue those trapped inside those flats.

We pray for those who are waiting news of loved ones. We can but simply hold all these folks out to God's loving mercy.

Hello all

I remember the church Walks of Witness and have very many happy memories.

How times change and we have to accept our limitations and give thanks always.

Remembering in prayer all who are struggling with ongoing ill health conditions. xx

Good morning :-)

For today:

I come before you O Lord
As the sun rises may your hope rise up in me.
As the birds sing may your love flow out of me.
As the light floods into this new day,
May your joy shine through me.
I come before you, O Lord
And drink in this moment of peace,
That I may carry something of your hope, love and joy
Today in my heart.

Good morning :-)

The rain held off. The banners blew in the wind. The pavements were crowded. The
procession of witness was larger than ever. All in all, a very successful an impressive Walking Day. :-D

For today:

Lord, bless the week ahead.
May its challenges
not overwhelm us,
not discourage us,
and in all things
may we remember
you are with us
in our journeying,
your love our fuel,
your word our guide,
today and always. Amen.


Cynthia Report 11 Jun 2017 08:12

Good morning :-)

A busy for my church today. Just one service with Holy Baptism and then, this afternoon, its our annual Walking Day. Hope the rain holds off. :-D

The Collect (special prayer) for today:

Almighty and everlasting God,
you have given us your servants grace,
by the confession of a true faith,
to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
keep us steadfast in this faith,
that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The reading for today tells us of Jesus’ command to go into the world and baptise in the name of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.

Hello all

Following on from today's general election result..............

May we look::-

BACKWARD with the gratitude
FORWARD with courage, and
UPWARD with confidence.


Cynthia Report 9 Jun 2017 07:35

Good morning :-)

Another election over......let the fun begin! :-D

Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Amen.

Cynthia Report 8 Jun 2017 07:45

Good morning :-)

Something we can't avoid today.....the General Election.

Loving God,
Thank you for caring about how our country is run, and that we have the right to vote for our politicians and government.

But in the run-up to this general election there are so many policies to understand, and so many different points of view to consider.

Sometimes I wonder whether there's any point in voting, whether anyone cares what I think.

As I choose who I am going to vote for,
help me not to be cynical about politics and politicians,
help me to remember that my vote can make a difference,
and help me vote for those people who will protect the poor and vulnerable, and do all they can to make our nation a place of fairness and peace.

Because you call us to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen.

Cx :-)

Hello all

Sorry your husband has this new problem Cynthia. Hopefully it won't last too long.

I also wonder what each new day (and night) will bring sometimes but God is good
and we are given the strength to cope with everything that is thrown our way.

Remembering those who are grieving for loved ones and those who are worry about
family and friends injured in the terrorist attacks here and in Paris too. xxx


Cynthia Report 7 Jun 2017 07:44

Good morning :-)

OH now has 'weeping leg'. It is not painful but the leg is heavily bandaged and he has to keep it raised as much as possible. I have 'weeping flaming Nora what next' syndrome! :-D

We are off to the doc for a blood test and the clinic for a look at the leg. Can't say we don't see life :-D

For today:

Come, O Spirit of God
Holy Spirit, I offer myself
to your work of healing, peace and reconciliation.
In my busy world, bless my silent moments.
In the stillness of my heart, may I find peace within myself,
peace with others, and peace with you. Amen.

Love to all Cx :-)

Hello All

Amen to your prayer for Pentecost and our troubles Cynthia.

The church bells would please your little dog Pat being taken for an early walk.

We joined in with others at 11am this morning remembering the dead and injured from the terrorist attack in London All very alien to what we are used to in past times but sadly one wonders when it will all end? Thoughts and prayers to all who are affected.


Cynthia Report 6 Jun 2017 07:20

Good morning :-)

Oh my! Pat and her bells........I love hearing about them :-D

A prayer which is suitable for this season of Pentecost and for the state of our troubled world.

Let us pray
that the Holy Spirit
may bring peace and unity to all mankind.

Almighty and ever-living God,
you fulfilled the Easter promise
by sending us your Holy Spirit.
May that Spirit unite the races and nations on earth
to proclaim your glory.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Remembering all those who have been involved in the recent attacks ......and giving thanks for our wonderful emergency services.

Cx :-)

The bells - the bells. Awoke this morning to the cacophony of the local bells. It's Orthodox Whit Monday. First service 06.30 :-S Went back to sleep but at 07.30 the bells again for the end of the service :-S. Gave up then, dog got an early walk. :-)

Watched most of the show from Manchester last night. Nothing will be achieved by this slaughter. The IRA found that out.

Religious or not common sense should prevail.

My heart goes out to all those effected by these indiscriminate attacks. <3


Cynthia Report 5 Jun 2017 07:22

Good morning :-)

Yesterday, was a special day – yes, we had a baptism, but even more important was the fact that yesterday was Pentecost – the ‘Birthday of the Church’. We enjoyed a wonderful service.

It is called the Church’s birthday because on that day, the Holy Spirit was sent and this was the start of the church’s mission to the world.

Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter and the name comes from the Greek word ‘pentekoste’ which means 50th.

A prayer to strengthen us in this troubled world of ours.

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.
Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.
Melt me, mould me, fill me, use me,
Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.

My thoughts and prayers to all involved in last night's atrocities in London.

Hello all

More horror and deaths caused by last nights terror attack in London. Heartbreaking!

Remembering in prayer all the victims and their family and friends coping with this latest shocking incident, our condolences to each and every one of them.

Praise and recognition given to the police and emergency services and hospital staff coping in an amazing way with the effects of terrorist attacks around our country.
