A big week

What a week it has been. 

Last Thursday my flat mate for the last 4.5 year left to do his vicarage in Springwood NSW. It has been strange not having Paul around. No random discussions on eco-theology (his honors topic), and no important questions like "what wine will go with that?"

On the bright side Julie Anne, my new flat mate, was here one night and she gets engaged! It's all happening here at the moment. People moving out, people moving in, people getting engaged...  I wonder what exciting event waits around the corner for me? 

God bless you Julie and Matthias as you embark on the wonderful journey of wedding planning then marriage.

Fresh Sheets

I love the convenience of using clothes dryers in winter. But what I like more is the feel and smell of air dried cloths and sheets. They are crinkly to fold and feel so fresh to put on. And there is something special about getting into bed the sheets are washed. It is like wiggling your way between layers of filo pastry. 

I love the small pleasures God provides for us everyday.

How about you? What small things make your day...

Thinking back

On Saturday it was 12 months ago that I arrived in Desboro to begin my vicarage. I didn't know all the wonderful blessings God had in store for me. And today is 91 days until ordination and a new adventure will begin. God really is a fantastic tour director.

They're home

I have just spoken to my Mum and Dad who arrived back in Australia this morning from their trip to Canada for Brenton and Shirley's wedding. Before flying out for Australia they went on a 7 day Alaskan cruise. Dad described the ship as a "feedlot for people." Maybe they will have to live on cornflakes and bread for the next week?

Welcome home Mum and Dad, I hope you sleep well.

Happy Father's for Sunday Dad

God's blessings

Love Adrian

A new toy

You may have noticed the lack of photos on my blog lately. Well it is not because I haven't been taking photos, but that they are too big to put on my blog. So, because I am getting more into photography and my old computer is full (in Canada recently it refused to down load some photos because there was not enough room) I decided to but a new computer. You can see a what it looks like here. It will take me a while to get up to speed with my new machine, so you might have to wait a while yet.

I'm looking forward to showing you more of what I see though the lens of my camera.
