Well, this is it… The day that makes a farce of my ‘365’.  The anomaly of the 29th of February which means that I should actually call this my ‘366’.

A somewhat unobtrusive day where I enjoyed the simple pleasure of a cup of coffee in escape from the rain, a chance to propose (in jest I hasten to add) and an enjoyable dinner with a family from church.  Topped off with a date with Mr Darcy.

I LOVE to teach.  I think its what I’m made to do.  It may not be perfect, it may not be 100% articulate or sorted or refined, but I love to share what I’m learning to help others learn.

A satisfyingly productive morning when a talk came together despite me thinking I had NOTHING to say!

SLOBS looked to be a difficult one, but again I was overwhelmed by the real sense that the Small Group Leaders are growing so much.  I loved their engagement with Scripture, with each other and with me – what a blessing.  I am reminded that its often in the struggle that we grow stronger.

A wee jaunt over to Derry to do an address at a ‘Lent’ service in a church – a chance to see some of the students there again and chat a little.  One man’s comment about being glad to hear that ‘students aren’t all bad’ made the CU movement all the more fresh and exciting to me too.

I called a friend I haven’t spoken to in almost a year.  It was easy – I just picked up the phone and did it!  As the phone rang I was thinking that I feel like a different person since we last spoke.  That made me nervous, but I discovered she’s been on a similar journey and that our friendship is still strong, still fresh and still organic!  Praise God for friends like that.  Praise God for growth in difficult times.

Today was much more chilled out than I thought it would be.

An unexpected meeting with 2 Small Group Leaders who are so eager to lead their group well became not just a good study, but also a good chance to get to know them better.  Its such a privilege to do this kind of thing as a ‘job’.

Being part of a supporters’ event was harder than just attending one, but it went well (eventually – turns out I waffle for at least 3 minutes before getting over myself and starting to make sense.  Apparently it was a ‘good representation’ of what I’m like in general.  Thanks ‘smoothie’ 😉 !!!). It was great to meet a bunch of people who meet regularly in Omagh to pray for student ministry – I’m hopefully gonna get a wee jaunt down to see them all!  Also, I love to introduce ‘my’ people to each other and see them interact (a new dynamic to this is when they sheepishly admit ‘i read your blog sometimes…’!).  Good night gone well methinks.

 A got ANOTHER photo published – in a novel!  It has my name in the credits listings inside where all the publisher details and all are!!!! How COOL is THAT?!?  One day I might even profit from all these published photos…

A wee chat with my bestest friend.  I love her.

A wee chat with my bestest housemate.  I love her too.

God showing up in song choices.  Sunday lunch chilling out with friends.  Indifference to an empty house.  An early night!

Oh, and as I drove to my friends’ house, I saw two horses running across a sunlit field – very picture-skew.

Another “oh, and”… I won a wee prize for having the highest ladies’ score at a church bowling night from Friday!  Cool.  Doesn’t say much for the other ladies’ skill however…!  Though 108 is decent enough, huh?
