Things breaking down…

I have been blessed by my washing machine lasting over 11 years and my parents TV which I’ve had for 6 years has lasted 20 years. Both broke down at the same time. The TV may be fixable; the washing machine had to be replaced. And it’s car service, tax and insurance month. Ever had everything happen at once?! The good news was that God was good enough to give me a small refund on my house purchase and some interest on an investment which have helped. These came earlier in the month and as lovely as they were, I suspected they were meant for something. So, life brings good things and challenges. As someone said, life has parallel tracks of blessings and problems.

Yesterday there was a lovely sunrise and a very overcast sunset. Another illustration of light and dark existing in one time period.

For persecuted Christians there is a constant experience of light and dark. The darkness and challenge are the dominant part of the symphony but the light of faith does shine through. Good things and difficulties come along at unexpected times.

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 £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?
