I testify. A brilliantly simple idea

I have copied this from the latest e-letter from Fresh Expressions. Nothing speaks about Jesus , His love for us and our reaching to take His outstretched hand better than hearing how others did it. What encouragement!

The idea is simple – short, digital testimonies of up to 3 minutes.
Recorded on your phone or tablet and sent to us here we would hope to build a site of faith stories to inspire and encourage.
There’s not much we ask for format wise other than the films being with who you are (Christian name will do) and where you live (town/city rather than full postcode) and then how it is you came to faith in Jesus Christ.
How to send it to us:
Once recorded please send us your film via a file sharing website such as www.filepigeon.com
1) Upload the file from your phone, tablet, computer etc
2) Add the email address you are sending it to: Talitha.proud@churchofengland.org
3) In advanced options, add your contact details so we know who is sending us the file
4) Press send. (If you are sending it from your phone it will work quicker connected to wi-fi rather than 3G/4G)
If filepigeon doesn’t work for you, you can also try sites such as www.wetransfer.com, or www.filesnack.com.
We would get in touch with you just to check you are happy with your story going up on the site before we publish it.
Currently we are looking to go live sometime in October and hope to do so with a large number of fantastic faith stories.

If you have any questions or queries do feel free to get in touch with Talitha Proud atTalitha.proud@churchofengland.org

A prayer for the present situation

I have just been to visit aged parent in her Care Home . She is confused and has memory loss. Today she was sitting as usual in her chair with todays paper open on her lap. She asked me where the Islamic State was. I explained and asked her to pray . It seems that the Lord is raising up all his Prayer warriors. My mother has not talked about anything of the world for nearly a year until today .
My sister in Cheshire has just sent me this , which is circulating in her fellowship circles. 

I will send it to Mother, she loves post , and I love it that she is still being used by her Heavenly Father.

The remains of the day

Will's Dahlia bed

Today I was clearing away all remains of the flowers from Helens wedding last week. It was so good using garden flowers that were grown in Filey in gardens and allotments . I thought I should preserve the flowers for posterity , as their life in a vase was only a week . So here is a parade of Wills dahlias, my Clary, Willis's  and Sally Anns sweetpeas and Bobs gladioli.

From Bob Halls garden 
My allotment , Clarys all ready

Not forgetting the formal offerings
