Another year nearly over...

I am not sure its been my best year, 2017, but I am not sure it has been my worst either.

Do you ever reflect on the year just gone and wish you had done some things and hadn’t done some things ?   Well, it’s like that for me.  There are many things I wish I hadn’t done, and there a number of things I wish I had.

You can’t go back and change it.... but we can make choices that change what a new year looks like.

I am hopeful for that, for myself. I haven’t blogged much in 2017, and I noticed the last entry was in August..a bit slack of me really.

For 2018 things will be hugely different for me ( and Jules), we have moved house, and will work from home in a new role for TSA in Australia. It’s exciting, but also a bit daunting as we try and discover what the role truly means.

Here are a few things, my top 10, I hope to achieve in 2018 for my life personally. No particular order, and dont read between the lines, coz there isnt anything to read there.

1.   Balance up work and personal life.
2.   Live a holier life.
3.   Play a bit more golf.
4.   Try and eat a little more healthier.
5.   Stop being distracted by various things around me, that mess with my head and heart.
6.   Read more.
7.   Worship together with Julie at the same church. As often as we can.
8.   Become a grand pa....  woohoo.  ( I will be called Pa)
9.   Encourage and Add Value to others around me, to greater heights in their ministry.
10. Lead a few people to Jesus. (First timers)

Will see how I go with my top 10....  what about you ? You have any dreams or hopes for 2018 ?

I pray that our lives will be healthy, happy and holy this year.

Bless you.

This is sure to offend someone...( and I am not that sorry about it)

In my quiet time this morning, as I sit quietly and reflect upon my life and what I see and sense around me these days, I must confess I have some concerns ...things that worry me, even frighten me.

I apologise if this blog offends you, but I guess if you dont want to be offended you could always stop reading right now and go away ...(lol).  That's up to you...  !!!!

I sit in my prayer room, looking at my books, many of which have changed my view on life and ministry...people who have gone before me, people wiser than I am, with loads of experience in leading church and changing church for the Kingdom of Gods sake.

I want my life to count for something, that when I die, that I might have made a difference to something, someone ..somewhere.  I tried to write a book, but never got it finished.... and my life is heading towards its end, 57 years of age, I may have 30 years left in me, at best.

Life is short there are rumors of war and some crazy bloke up north who wants to annialate …

My Story !!!

Over the past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about my story...what makes up my life, my experiences, my interactions and my relationships.

We all have a story, there isnt one person on this planet who does not have some kind of story or the other. And I guess that's what I wanted to blog about today...  it's how our stories impact each other, how our worlds collide, bless or even touch others. ( an hopefully not harm others)
Its not meant to be a preach this blog, but more of some insights I have gained as my story has unfolded, and especially this year 2017....
I believe that our story, our unique individual story that is " me" that is "you", are very important to us, after all, I am the only one that can live out my life and you yours, but from time to time, when we meet new people the stories of our lives are impacted.  Either for good, or not so good.
My life has been touched by so many people and in so many ways, over my life time, and some of t…
