It's Nearly March...

...and the first Friday in March is always the [Women's] World Day of Prayer. After all the work I put in last year to produce a YouTube video,[which had over 1400 views!] I said that this year I might attend a service, but I was definitely not going to get involved in the planning. Then my friend at church told me that she was the church rep on the committee, but following a bereavement, she didn't feel she could do it this year. And furthermore, our little chapel is due to be hosting the local service. So please, could I help out?
The service has been planned by the women of England, Wales and Northern Ireland [EWNI] and the them is "I know the plans I have for you" based on the text in Jeremiah 29. Here's my WDP mug with artist Hannah Dunnett's interpretation of that.So I had to look again at my decision, and I duly went off to the meeting, and came back with stuff to sort out [Bob has already volunteered his services with PA if needed. A true saint]
Here's the 2022 WDP artwork [done by another Angela from Norfolk] representing justice, freedom, forgiveness and peace.

My friend Louise Bowes, editor of the WDP magazine has written this interpretation of the verse from Jeremiah ...

I know the plans I have for you
Plans which you do not yet know
Plans to prosper you, not to harm you
So whatever you are going through right now
Be assured that I am with you
And that Rainbow days will be ahead
My child
Hold on to these promises in your heart
And know, as your Father God, I love you


  1. Thank you for posting the verse. I love 'Rainbow days will be ahead'.

    And my limited experience of Church is that once you have organised one thing, you will be hunted down forever more to organise. I'm sure that you will make an awesome difference.

    1. Thank you- people were very helpful at church this morning, and willing to take on the little jobs [reading, teamaking etc] which are needed to make the event run smoothly.

  2. What is it they say.....if you want something done, ask a busy person....?
    Hannah Dunnett was part of our church here, but has now moved further afield. Her art work is lovely.

    1. How lovely that you know HD - they have a lot of her stuff in our local Christian Bookshop

  3. Such beautiful mugs with good thoughts on them. You will do fine with this latest project and I think you are wonderful to take it on.

    1. Fortunately there is not too much work involved this year!

  4. How kind of you to take this on at the last minute. Last year my church was the host church in Toronto and even though it was all virtual there was still a lot to do and those women involved did a great job.
    I usually post something on our website so I'm just waiting for the artwork to come through - hopefully today.

    1. Margie - if you do not get the artwork, you may find some helpful downloadable stuff on our website


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