A cold day

It's really cold here today, there was still ice outside when I hung the washing out after 11am Not long after that I went to church for the funeral of Gordon, a man who died just a few days before Christmas. Gordon was a church member, and there was a big crowd at the service today. It was a good funeral, full of hope and there was a pleasant gathering in the church hall afterwards too. By three o'clock when I was on my way home it was already getting dark and still bitterly cold.

The light in our kitchen has stopped working, we need a new fluorescent tube, I'm sure we'll get one soon... but in the meantime I'm getting used to cooking our evening meal in the dark!! - it all adds to the interest of my day!

Now we are watching an episode of Cracker (a Christmas present) in a warm, light room and I can almost forget the cold, dark night outside... if I close my eyes I can imagine the warm sun and golden sands.... roll on spring time!

Hi there,
My name is Sarah and I am from Canada. Somehow I stumbled onto your website--I was looking for pictures of Leeds--and was blessed to find a haven in the midst of the internet. Not only was your artwork beautiful, (I am an artist too so I appreciate the vivid imagination of your paintings) but as a Christian I found your art and story inspiring.
I live in Canada and am in my third year of University. My major is English Literature and I recently went on a trip to the UK with the English department. It was an amazing experience. Anyways,
even though you don't know me, I wanted to encourage you as an artist and let you know that God uses your talents across land and sea. He spoke to me through your work even though I am far far away.
Thanks and blessings of Christ Jesus on you and yours,
Sarah P.
p.s.If you like, I have a livejournal type thing too...www.greenwoodmusings.blogspot.com It is not consistently updated, but I try....:)
