And so the journey continues...

Yet again I have received complaints about a lack of blogging.

The truth is I don't want to write when I don't have anything to say.

I could have talked about brilliant Christmas family services, with a great presentation from the kids.

Or great Christmas parties and Christmas dinners our Church has hosted, including for local sheltered housing and the senior citizen's forum. Or even the 110 toddlers who came with associated adults to our toddler group party. Yes, that is right, 110 toddlers.

Or even doing a double preach at our two Carol Services.

But I didn't.

Because I didn't want to.

There was only one thing I wanted to talk about.

But I couldn't.

So I didn't.

But now I can.

Say hello to someone who has taken up quite a bit of my thought life and my prayer life recently.

As regular readers will know, it has not all been plain sailing.

God is good. All the time.

He was good in the dark times.

He is good in the good times.

Because times don't make God, but God is good all the time.

I hate "manflu".

Headache, shivers, sore throat, runny nose, uncontrollable sneezing, lethargy.

I felt rough on Sunday but lasted out two Sunday meetings but then knew I needed to slow down.

Monday was a day in bed, showering at 5.15pm when I decided to "get up".

Tuesday saw me attempt two meetings before going home at lunch while Wednesday has seen me knocked out at home, just a few emails winging around.

I feel miserable, and I don't like being miserable. Grumpy is not even in my nature, and yet feeling like this just seems to evoke grumpiness!

It has been a long time since I lost 3 days in a row to being poorly. Still, at least the Cat has had some company!
