It is three whole years, and almost 1400 posts since I began blogging.

breakfast march 08

My first post had a picture of a lovely red and white breakfast table, set with croissants and coffee etc. I took two photos that morning – this is the other. I think Bob had just remarked something to the effect that he wondered how long I would sustain this new blogging habit. Neither of us expected this long!

I am not doing a Blog-Birthday-Giveaway today – after all, I am in the middle of six Lenten Giveaways at the minute. But thank you friends, for all your encouragements and kind comments through the past 3 years. So much has changed since I began these ramblings – for us as a family, within my local church and community, and for our world.

I am glad that whatever else changes, we can rely on God

Faithful one, so unchanging
Ageless one, you’re my rock of peace
Lord of all I depend on you
I call out to you, again and again
I call out to you, again and again

You are my rock in times of trouble
You lift me up when I fall down
All through the storm
Your love is the anchor
My hope is in You alone

My blog’s tagline is “Experiencing God’s Grace In The Everyday” – it has been true since Day 1, and I see no sign of that changing.


  1. Congratulations...and what timing, I am celebrating my 100th post on my blog this week!

    I love that song, it is such a good reminder that God is our secure place, the same in the ups and the downs.

  2. Happy Blog-birthday. Time flies by doesn't it?

    I love the song 'Faithful One' it has accompanied me through some different 'storms' over the years and always reminds me where my hope truly lies.

    Every blessing.
