Sorry it has been so long since last blog. Where does time go? Here we are almost at mid summer and nearly half way to Christmas. At Church Council on Monday we had to arrange our Christmas services. Matthew's gospel chapter 6 and verse 34 says, "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself." We do have to do some planning ahead but not at the expense of today. Today will never come again. In each day there are things we have to do but in each day there should be some pleasure too. So whatever difficulties you may be facing take time to enjoy the day - the sun, a good meal, a phone call or visit. Pleasure is a gift of God. Jesus took time out with friends, went to parties, enjoyed times of peace and quiet. There is much talk in working circles about work / life balance and whether you go out to work or not you need to think about the balance of your life.
