Pause in Lent #3























You created every part of me;
    you put me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because you are to be feared;
    all you do is strange and wonderful.
    I know it with all my heart.
When my bones were being formed,
    carefully put together in my mother's womb,
when I was growing there in secret,
    you knew that I was there—
you saw me before I was born. [Psalm 139]















Overwhelmed right now by God's grace and gift of new life. Happy to announce the birth of our first granddaughter, Rosie Jean, on Wednesday 24th. Her arrival was late, long and very laborious - but mother, baby, and father are now all doing well. I am not posting any photos until I get the OK from Liz. But here is a picture of the Prayer-Bear which I was given when Liz was born, now sporting a new cable knit sweater and re-embroidered beatific smile. Last seen sitting by the crib in St Thomas' Hospital.
