The Other Side – {Lent}

I'm heading overseas shortly. Not for long, but an International flight will be involved. So as a result I will queue up more than once as I process through check in, immigration, security, customs etc. I can't circumvent these steps, it's part of the journey to enable me to visit a distant land. My destination and purpose of… Continue reading The Other Side – {Lent}


Consider – {Lent}

Easter’s a-coming and you don’t even have to look at a calendar to know that! One walk through a supermarket will show you – the selling of Easter eggs and hot cross buns has begun. But this time of year is about much more than the anticipation of Easter Eggs or the enjoyment thereof (not… Continue reading Consider – {Lent}


The Door – {Good Friday}

As a child I was enchanted with the books from the Chronicles of Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis. The world of Narnia, Aslan and the adventures of the children intrigued me. Even now, as I read these books again as an adult, I can’t help but be captivated by the world of Narnia that greeted… Continue reading The Door – {Good Friday}


O Sacred Head, Surrounded – {Lent}

O sacred head, surrounded by crown of piercing thorn! O bleeding head, so wounded, reviled and put to scorn! Our sins have marred the glory of thy most holy face, yet angel hosts adore thee and tremble as they gaze I see thy strength and vigor all fading in the strife, and death with cruel… Continue reading O Sacred Head, Surrounded – {Lent}


The Traitor and the Betrayal – {Lent}

It would probably be true to say that not many of us will be unscathed by a betrayal or a hurt from a friend. Over the course of our lives most of us would have at some point been let down, hurt or betrayed by a friend. I know I have. Sometimes unintentionally, sometimes intentionally. It can come in… Continue reading The Traitor and the Betrayal – {Lent}


Ride on in Majesty – {Lent}

 1. Ride on! ride on in majesty! Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry; O Savior meek, pursue Thy road With palms and scatter'd garments strew'd. Chorus: Ride on, ride on in majesty; (Ride on, ride on, ride on, ride on in majesty, in majesty;) In lowly pomp, ride on to die. (In lowly pomp, in… Continue reading Ride on in Majesty – {Lent}

The feather and the nail – {Lent}

I hold in my hands a feather and a nail. The nail is cold and heavy. I can feel the point pressing against my palm. It is man made. Strong, a tool. The feather on the other hand feels weightless. I can barely feel it in my hand. I'm more aware of it's softness than… Continue reading The feather and the nail – {Lent}


The Old Rugged Cross – {Lent}

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, The emblem of suff’ring and shame; And I love that old cross where the dearest and best For a world of lost sinners was slain. So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, Till my trophies at last I lay down; I will cling to the… Continue reading The Old Rugged Cross – {Lent}
