Just Joking

O'Toole worked in the lumber yard for twenty years and all that time he'd been stealing the wood and selling it. At last his conscience began to bother him and he went to
confession to repent.

"Father, it's 15 years since my last confession, and I've been
stealing wood from the lumber yard all those years," he told the priest.

"I understand my son," says the
priest. "Can you make a Novena?"

O'Toole said, "Father, if you have the plans, I've got the lumber."



Sparkling white bench on emerald carpet,
sound of leather on willow.
Tremendous gaiety
in conversation
brings delight to me on my pillow,

Essence of lilac in May time,
the texture of velvet on roses,
sound of the curlew
in the glen,
as I gaze at the cattle in varying poses.

The market day and
scent of hay.
New mown grass with daisies.
Hawthorn decking
lanes of sun.
Gentle walks
for exercising ladies.

Turbulent sunsets
in cerise and mauve.
Wild wind rockets
through chimneys.
The tenderest bliss
from a child's gentle kiss,
All lead me to thank Him
on my knees

The Lord is saying.   You are on the brink of a breakthrough but you didn't know. Now you know, pick up those feeble knees and walk on strong, with your head held high. You were feeling shaky but walk on, your breakthrough is immininent if you faint not, nor go back. Set your face like flint and keep walking.


Romans 1:19-20 Amplified Bible

For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner conciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them. For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So men are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification].

The Emperor's new clothes

An Emperor who cares for nothing but his wardrobe hires two weavers who promise him the finest suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "just hopelessly stupid". The Emperor cannot see the cloth himself, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing unfit for his position or stupid; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they pretend to dress him and the Emperor then marches in procession before his subjects. A child in the crowd calls out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but holds himself up proudly and continues the procession................


I can't help but think that this is the state of the world at the moment!! People say that the earth made itself and that an explosion came and made all the amazing things that we see around us, evolving over time. They teach children in schools what is a theory and call it a fact. It stands to reason that if you build a wall and leave it to itself it will deteriorate and crumble and if you put dynamite under it it will blow it to smithereens. How ridiculous to think that an explosion can bring order. Time (without a maintainance man to repair stuff) makes matters worse not better. Even science easily proves this. Some people have likened the nonsensical idea of the big bang theory being like an explosion writing and ordering all the books in a library ..... How ridiculous and impossible!!!


And yet those who see clearly and who shout out the truth "CREATION NEEDED A CREATOR" are said to be fools while the rest walk on pretending.

Wrong is said to be right and right wrong. Politicians that stand up for good morals quickly back down when they think they will lose the vote. People who say there is a God, when it is so clearly seen in the beauty of creation are labelled as "nutters".

The truth is.... The emperor had no clothes on.... and there is a God...... and He did create the universe and His beautiful handiwork we see around us. Every fruit and flower he made to delight us....

Jesus was born of a virgin, lived and was crucified and rose again on the third day to rescue this sad old world...

Its time for the people who know the truth, to stand up with boldness, simplicity and love and to nail our flags to the mast , because one day when the chips are down we'll wish we did!! For all will bow their knee to the creator of heaven and earth.



Accidental angle
C.S. Lewis on materialistic thoughts First published:
Creation 21(2):47
March 1999

‘If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents—the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else’s. But if their thoughts—i.e. of materialism and astronomy—are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It’s like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milkjug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset.’

C.S. Lewis (1898–1963), The Business of Heaven, Fount Paperbacks, U.K., p. 97, 1984.

Sponsored walk

A 15km walk around Dovedale to help dig a well for constant fresh water for the rubbish dump children in Tenali, India.
Would you like to join us in the walk, sponsor us or organise sponsorship for us

Sponsored Walk

Message from Anita Ball

As you may already know a team of us went out to India in December of last year to visit with Brother Raju (who is also a medical doctor) and he took us round the tribal villages of Tenali that he cares for. He took us to many tribal villages but the one that needs our help now is the one in Guntur. This village is right next to a rubbish dump and they are desperately in need of a bore well. We need to raise at least £600 for this well to be dug and so I am going to do a walk around Dovedale at the end of June and for those of you who would like to sponsor me then please get in touch with either myself or Shirley to donate. There are so many good things that Brother Raju does for his people that if we are blessed to have more money than we need for the well this will then be spent feeding the children of the villages and helping Brother Raju provide medical care for all the tribal villages. I pray that God will put it in your heart to help these people. God bless to you all. Your sister in Christ Jesus xxx
