A privilege

As all three of us start free education this month (provided in various ways by work places, taxes and scholarships) there is an interesting page on our calendar. It’s a calendar produced by friends of ours who work in Yemen and quotes the lack of access for females to education in that country. 75% of women and girls can not read or write. We are so grateful …

My baby is a school girl

Beky coped very well with her first day at school today. She looked so small and nervous during assembly but was her usual out going self once she got back to the class room. God answered her prayer of last night “please be with me tomorrow God I’m not too sure about school”. A phone call from her closest friends who were also getting into their uniforms helped get her out the door this morning

I managed to leave gracefully without blubbering in sight of anyone. I’m grateful to St Lukes church having an open prayer room that I could visit and light a candle to symbolise letting go.
