I haven't posted for a while - I'd like to blame work for it but cannot on this occasion, I've been busy with various recreational pursuits (albeit some with an educational / spiritual value).
So, for those of you remotely interested, here's what I've been doing: I've been avidly following Sheffield Wednesday FC's final push for promotion (I intended to write about this but never got round to it), I've continued to attend my local Baptist church (I've been intending to write about why and what this means for me as a 'Free Christian' but have not got round to it yet either), I've been trying to get back into practicing mindfulness (one day I'll get round to writing a book about this!) and I've been enjoying the lighter, if not sunnier, days (see the photos below... and a few more here).
I recently listened to a sermon about 'Abiding in the Spirit' and it strikes me this is what I've been doing recently, simply enjoying the present moment, appreciating the gift of life - and it's what I need to do more of.
