Baklava

Amazing how different the weather is this weekend. Been out in the garden both pruning and digging out roots of a big dog rose. Tough work-bent back the prongs of my large fork! It made think how deep rooted issues in our lives can be hard to shift…

Lovely to see my first ladybird of the summer and the daisies coming out…

It’s been challenging to move forward much with the 60@60 activities this week. I have been really tired. But I keep adding new recipes and done a couple of random kindness acts. Today I have baked my first Lent recipe-Baklava, based on a recipe from Aleppo in Syria πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡Ύ. Baklava is peanut based dough in pastry but very sweet. But even mine tastes quite nice so the real thing must be amazing!

Syria is Number 12 on the Open Doors World Watch list. The civil war still continues in some areas while around the country converts face great risks and Pastors are targets for abduction. Covid-19 has made people yet poorer with lots losing their source of incomes. Many Syrians still live in awful conditions within camps in neighbouring countries such as Jordan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΄ and Lebanon πŸ‡±πŸ‡§ which themselves are suffering. Your donations can help the churches who are reaching out to the poorest in their communities.

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising Β£6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
