Setting Up Signposts

A beautiful, ongoing testamony to the love of God in the most difficult of times:


Set Up Signposts.    Make Landmarks.

Jeremiah 31:21

Five months ago Cancer forced his way, uninvited, into my home.  He took the best seat in the sitting room, put his feet up on the coffee table, demanded the remote control and settled in.  He lounged at my dining table and took over the ordering of my kitchen.   He is a most demanding guest who takes all and gives nothing in return.  He commandeered the diary and the schedule, dictates the when and the where.  He bullies and intimidates with his continual, ‘What if…’  He delights to narrow my life.

But Jesus also lives in my home, quieter and undemanding.   He lives and loves to give.   He is waiting by the front door to welcome me when I come home and to wave me off when I go out.  He waits at the top of the stairs when I go up and at the foot when I…

Rewilding Britain

What could be better than rewilding 🙂

The Earthbound Report

rewilding britainA new charity launched last week, Rewilding Britain. It was a matter of time. There’s been a buzz about rewilding in the last couple of years, a growing sense of movement, but without any organisations dedicated specifically to rewilding. Projects have been on the local level, and as far as I can tell nobody has been working on rewilding advocacy or education.

So Rewilding Britain emerges neatly into a niche in the ecology of environmental charities, dedicated toinspire, inform and build a wider movement for rewilding.” The organisation is inspired by George Monbiot’s book Feral, which is no surprise to me at all.
