BLOG BIRTHDAY!!



Literally just realised today is the third anniversary of this blog TODAY! which also means it's 3 years since I was so inspired by my new journey of faith that I had to write about it! Can't believe it has been 3 years. 

So that's 3 years, 467 posts, 1039 comments and 46,165 page views.. yikes! Thanks so much to everyone who reads my mutterings and for all the input...

When I first started writing it was all about our encounter with Jesus and coming back to faith in a big way. Very soon after that I felt called into ministry, subsequently was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue. I sold my business, went to see the DDO, took time out. Did some volunteering with our church  and then got a 'proper' job at church. I got selected for training, took a year break and now am approaching the time when I will actually start training to be a Vicar (eek!)

I can't believe how much God has done in the last 3 years, for me, for my husband, for us as a couple and for my family. It has been a totally crazy 3 years and yet totally amazing.
About 4 years ago we had stopped going to church. 3 1/2 years ago we met a builder who told us all about his faith, and from that we had our own encounter with Jesus. My husband and I have joked about how different we both are and how we think about things so differently now. God gave me the words  volte face  which seem to describe these changes amazingly well. But above all it's like our lives have purpose now, we know what journey we are on, even if we don't know the destination! I can't tell you how wonderful that is and how peaceful.  I have no idea what the next 3 years will entail but I know that Jesus will be at the centre and with him we will have amazing adventures!

Anyway I'm not going to do a whole rehash here, everything that has happened has been documented on here and there are some links highlighted above. If you want to know more, feel free to comment or tweet me!

and THANKS again !!
