He's got the whole world in His hands!

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you, bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” (Proverbs 3:3)

Hello again. What beautiful weather we’re enjoying lately! As you know by now, we love our regular walks. We were blessed to be able to visit both my sisters over the weekend, and had a lovely long walk on Cleveleys promenade on Saturday. It was quite busy of course but it was wonderful to fill our lungs with sea air. We had a barbecue in Blackpool, and enjoyed the company of my brother and his partner too

On Sunday we visited my other sister in Rossendale, had a wonderful (but somewhat tiring – for me, anyway) hill walk, and then enjoyed quality time sitting in her beautiful garden. Such simple pleasures but so valued and appreciated, after our long period of lockdown.

“Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honour one another above yourselves.”

The pictures this week were taken at the party to celebrate our wedding. We had married the previous February but I had returned to Poland until June, so we decided to have a gathering for family and friends. We were fortunate enough to be offered the use of one of the schools where Kev works, so this saved us a considerable sum of money. Kev’s colleagues kindly prepared a hot buffet and a DJ had been hired.

“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.” (Galations 5:13)

Christians should not be slaves to sin, because they are free to do right and to glorify God through loving service to others.

This picture shows my dear friend Tracy, who is married to our pastor. She was with me when I became a Christian, and I have been so blessed and fortunate to enjoy her friendship and support for over ten years.

“And over all these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” (Colossians 3:14)

Ron was Kev’s best man at the wedding and is a passionate, committed Christian who speaks regularly at Bethesda, one of our local churches.

“Husbands, in the same way be considerate to your wives and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.” (1 Peter 3:7)

If a man is not considerate and respectful of his wife, his prayers will be hindered, because a living relationship with God depends on right relationships with others. I have nothing at all to fear on that score, because the Lord very graciously allocated me the best husband I could wish for. He always puts me first – so much so, that I am in danger of becoming spoiled!

Wishing you a peaceful and blessed week.  God bless.
