  1. Sadly one of our active volcanoes Whakaari/ White Island erupted today and has claimed the lives of several people ( tourists off a cruise ship Ovation ... ) and others. Some are still missing and many have been badly burned . pPlease pray for all concerned.This has not been a good year for New Zealand 😢
  2. My tree is artificial and about 25 centimetres high !! It’s summer here and I’m spending Christmas with my daughter and new baby in the South Island . I keep my tree and Nativity set out all year ! My neighbours put up pretty lights and flags but being on my own can’t climb high to put up lights .
  3. Oh my goodness did you say your uncle died recently. I’m so sorry to hear that.An added level of stress you could have done without , I imagine. When I first read it I thought it said husband ( must be ‘cos I’d read earlier he is unwell .) Hope you are managing to stay calm and positive.Prayer always helps😃🙏🙋
  4. I love this and all the Veggie Tales - I wonder if they could do a Christmas version for us “ down under “ who celebrate Christmas in mid - summer !! When I came to NZ from England 46 years ago it seemed really odd but I’m used to it now ( but still have family in the Northern Hemisphere so I can vicariously enjoy it their way too ! )
  5. Great stuff !! A brilliant way to start my day . Thanks so much for sharing this 😃😘🙋
  6. Thank you Lord for William’s relief from symptoms but if they recur I pray that You will urge him to seek medical help as it may be caused by a underlying condition which through Your hands a Doctor or specialist can give him a permanent solution.
  7. Hi everyone as a Speech Pathologist and Voice therapist and professionally trained singer may I just say that if your voice gets hoarse ( funny there are references to someone in a tight suit on a horse ! ) stop singing or you will develop vocal nodules ( or worse.) If you are experiencing any prolonged hoarseness, loss of voice and pain Or difficulty swallowing please seek medical advice as you may have laryngeal or oesophageal cancer. I don’t believe everyone can sing well. Nor can everyone play tennis well or play the violin or trumpet well .Training and practice help but some are just more gifted than others !
  8. Sorry but who is Matthew Henry ? I know of John Calvin, Martin Luther and the Diet of Worms but I don’t know about the Calvin Institutes . What Church do you belong to ? I am an Anglican but am pretty ecumenical in my approach to Christianity.
  9. I always think that atheists who ask these questions are at least interested in our beliefs . It’s the people who really don’t think about whether there’s a God /intelligent design or even a purpose in life I feel sorry for 😟
  10. Prayers from me to all concerned 🙏
  11. Sorry to hear this . Praying that more work will come your way . It can be a very expensive time of year . However we have trimmed our present giving so I only spend about $100 total ! Most of it on little grand daughter 💖😆
  12. Hi Sarah Daffy ( love your name btw.Do you like ducks ?!) No haven’t been in any films ( but my daughter, now in Berlin , has been an extra ). I’ve been on TV and radio being interviewed about the NZ Stroke Foundation ( which I started 40 years ago ! )
  13. Don’t know how those unicorns got there but cute anyway !!!
