My goodness how time is flying by, it seems only yesterday that I was uploading photos for my last post and yet it was over a week ago. I am pleased to say that we have both had our flu jabs and are thankful for it. There is talk already that there will not be enough to go around. There is also talk of difficulties with blood tests but, again I am thankful that Gerard has had his routine monthly tests done. Long may that last. The numbers are still rising of cases of Covid on the Uists which is a worry. But once more I am thankful that it hasn't reached our little Island yet. It seems that I have a lot to be thankful for and truly feel blessed. More restrictions have been imposed by the Scottish government and I believe more to come from the UK government with a 3 tier system proposed for England. Time will tell. These constant changes make planning so difficult. It would be nice to make some definite plans to see the family.
I find it easy to fill my days, as does Gerard. We always have so many projects that need doing and that we enjoy. I have signed up for a Bible journaling conference. I did something similar last year and really did enjoy it and learnt a lot. I also signed up for a 5 day Prayer and Possibilities prompt, which is about being intentional about developing your relationship with God. It has given me an insight about exploring some different ways to be more creative with my prayer time and devotionals. I am at the moment creating a prayer journal which is a great joy.
I am also enjoying my preparations for Christmas, I know its early but with all that is going on I want it to be special. A start has been made on some of the cards and gift tags. This years design is a little intricate but worth all the hard work. Starting early has given me plenty of time to get them done. We plod on each day enjoy the beauty that surrounds us and are thankful for our little cottage and the security that it gives us.
Hope all is well with you and that you have a lot to be thankful for...
Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
