Hearing from God · Quiet Times


Theatres, recording studios, and even home media rooms have all had a lot of time and money perfecting the acoustics.

I’ve got the joy!

This image, for me, immediately brought to mind the song "I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart". It was a song I used to sing at Sunday School.

Monkey Mind

It would be fair to say that sometimes my mind could be described as a monkey mind - a mind that jumps from thought to thought like a monkey jumps from tree to tree.

Choose your own adventure

As a kid, I used to love "Choose your own adventure" books. I loved being given the choice as to what I would do in the book I was reading. I must confess that sometimes though I would read 2 or more choices simultaneously as I was eager to find out where the different options took me! On reflection, I… Continue reading Choose your own adventure
