Hmmm… Reading a great book and then strolling along the beach, paddling through the sea.  There was a point where when I looked out I could just see blue-green sea meeting grey sky in a beautiful infinity-kind of way.  Twenty minutes after getting into the car, the heavens opened and it poured for the next 3 hours!!!  Glad I caught the calm.

After a successful Soiree Francaise (ooh – where I won a chocolate bar with chilli!), I was leaving my spoils in the car and looked back at the church… all lit up and buzzing.  It was great – I’d love to see our wee church a bit more like that more often.

Aaahhh… (contented sigh) Just wrote a great big letter to a friend.  Very therapeutic.  At least for me!

I should also have said that I got to eat dinner in the Ramore for freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Some days you have think about 365 moments, not just because it was a hard day, but just because you don’t notice them as they happen.  But today, I felt a true ‘365 moment’ and knew it immediately.  Nothing major nor complicated nor particularly deep… but as I walked down the path towards the sun-kissed beach (Beach Day no 5. in a row!!!) with a chocolate waffle cone topped with mint choc chip ice cream in my hand, a book in my bag and the prospect of a sunny snooze, I felt that 365ness-bounce in the step.

Beach Day no 4. What a busy but great day!

A church service followed by lunch, followed by a Beach baptism (well, 3 really) then back to church for a bbq then a prayer and praise time.

I was struck by what beautiful beaches we have on the North Coast, and apart from the baptisms, I think my favourite part was jumping over the waves with ‘the dude’.  Very, very cute – even if my back did start to spasm!

Beach Day no 3.  Getting to celebrate Noondy’s birthday on her actual birthday for perhaps the first time in years was pretty cool.

Honey oven-roasted sausages… yum yum yum (even if I do say so myself!)

Beach Day no 2. Today I loved the feeling of Castlerock smooth sand between my toes.  I only got about 30 mins of beachtime before the rain started, but nevertheless, I’m determined to make the most of my coastal location more often.

Good conversation with a friend who thinks as deeply, if not more deeply than I.  I love the process of understanding people, knowing people…

I’m glad to find myself happy to have the house to myself this evening.

A wee walk on the beach with a great mate who is fun and challenging to be around.  Teaching returning students about the Lordship of Christ and see them begin to respond.

Meeting the team from France who have come to serve my church.  It’ll be really interesting to see what its like to receive a team and chat some French!

Catching up with a student who’s about to head off to France for her placement.  Introducing her to a collegue and enjoying the banter with both of them.

Also, good chat with him over lunch.  Real glad to get to know him better.
