My ability to play the guitar

This is a skill i have really neglected. There was a time i used to play every day and i had finger tips that were like asbestos. These days my guitars sits in the corner and gets picked up from time and the smae tunes get played on it. The thought of joining the band at chutrch has cerossed my mind once or twice but it scares the crapolla out of me also. I have always loved the idea of ruth and i being able to crack oout a tune opr two at the varuious Robinson parties.

I am really thankful that i can have moments of playing alone or just with ruth. It has a great calming effect on me when i play. dunno if it does the same to Ruth or not but that’s something to ask her…

Thank you Jesus for my guitar skills

Thankful for My Xbox

Halo 3: Master Chief

Our Xbox 360

Much like the previous post about computers – this is a geek out affair. Microsoft did an amazing thing in producing the xbox and then the 360. They have collectively probably killed many many valuable brain cells but they have also provided many hours of entertainment and fun  and good times battering the crap out of friends on the screen.

Thank you Jesus for my xbox

Thankful for the Internet

The Internet

Blogs give students a broader audience

I am old enough to remember not having a technology we all heavily rely on. I remember my parents telling me stories of when they didn’t have a telephone and it was an epic task to go use a phone. I remember when email didn’t even exist let alone the full scope and wonderment that has become the web as we know it.

From being able to do our food shop on-line to booking holidays to watching funny videos and yes, lets even give it up for the tacky comedy emails that gets sent by that one friend constantly – The internet is something we should all be thankful for.

Thank you Jesus for the interweb!

Thankful for Bikes

Bikes

Anyone who knows me reasonably well knows that i was once a mentalist bike riding nutta! I would throw myself down silly steep hills and use gravity as an accelerator and sometimes my face as a brake. I’d launch myself off of large piles of dirt in search of the perfect smooth take-off and try styling it up mid air before usually crashing in a crumpled grinning heap.

I don’t ride as much as i’d like to these days. London really put a downer on that. It’s not exactly full of inspiring places to ride and i didn’t have a car before i lost my real passion for it. Now i sometimes pootle out on my rig and enjoy a gentle ride.

I still looove riding and hope to get fit again and ride had again once more.

Thank you Jesus for Bikes!

Holidays

I don’t think anyone can say they are not grateful for holidays. And by “holidays” i mean when you get time off from the usual rigmarole of your day(s)

Thank you Jesus for Holidays – WOOP!

Thankful for the Weather

the Weather

Lightning in Kaiserslautern II

Am being bold with this one What with all the floods that have been happening. I was lying in bed listening to the rain hammering down on the window and i was trying to justify why floods might happen. I couldn’t get anything concrete. The nearest was a flimsy argument on nature balancing itself out.

If the world worked out the God had planned it i wonder if we would ever consider rain to be bad weather. Would all weather be good weather? Like most i just want to live somewhere sunny and warm but i do love a good storm and i love being out in a really harsh storm.

I’m realising that this is coming across vary airy fairy and anyone who’s l;ived through a flood will probably think i’m talking utter crap. That’s not my intention. I guess i’m just trying to appreciate the weather for what it is and the benefits we get from it.

Thank you Jesus for the versatility in weather.

Thankful for Our Car

Our Car

I really am very thankful for our car. I don’t quite know how we would do life without it which is quite worrying. Its primary function is to get me to work and back but it is so good to be able to give people lifts and help people out. Like on Sunday I gave Big Dave a lift to church as his mobility scooter was in the shop and other times we’ve given lifts or picked stuff up for peeps. We’ve also had some adventures in our car that we will keep with us forever.

There are so many people in the world who couldn’t even conceive of being in a car let alone owning one so we are very very lucky to own this one.

Thank you Jesus
