Leave Of Absence

Mi casa es su casa - my house is your house. This little Willow Tree figure has stood on the shelf at Cornerstones for 10 years now. A treasured Christmas gift from Liz in 2009. She recognised just how much it meant to me, after a lifetime living in church houses or rented properties, to have somewhere to call my own. This little bungalow has been a place for rest, relaxation and re-creation. Somewhere we have been able to share with friends and family. We are constantly grateful to God for this lovely place. 
And for the next few days it will be our 'bolt-hole'. The church in Ferndown graciously suggested [insisted?] that Bob take proper compassionate leave following Frank's funeral. So this is where we will be, quietly 'restoring our souls'. Please don't be surprised if I am not posting as much as usual. I am so grateful for the love of the people at UCF as well as the sympathy and support of so many friends around the globe. 
Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.


  1. Rest well. You've have both had quite a year.

  2. I am glad you have this opportunity to rest and reflect, Angela, and a home which is a haven in which to do so. Take care of yourselves.

  3. Well earned time to yourselves. Rest and recuperate ready for the year ahead. X


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
