Plans and Planners

It's nearly the end of January.  Can you believe it?  I have no idea where the month has gone.

We went away for 3 days to the New Forest (Hampshire) to celebrate Roger's birthday.  We had vouchers for a half price 2 night stay in a hotel!  We managed to dodge the showers on the whole and visited places we had never been to before as well as going on a couple of walks.   We saw some New Forest ponies at the side of the road.

The view on our walk.

A BIG Thank you
When we got back I wrote about my One Little Word: Participate.   I would like to thank those who read to the end and to Danielle, Sandie, Pam, Catalina, Beverly, Lynne, Kate, Missus Wookie, Rinda and Valerie for leaving such encouraging comments.  I really appreciate that you took the time to write.  I have been back to read the comments several times.

I have continued to participate in my life and have found more joy.  I have kept my word in front of me and have kept fairly up to date with my planner.  I haven't been following all of the challenges set by the team but I am really happy with how my book is looking.  I am including a study of Psalms although I have yet to actually do the journaling to go with it!

In between I have been working on the new 'challenge' blog that started on Monday: Identity: A study in Ephesians.  It is slightly out of my comfort zone as I have never done a purely Christian challenge.

And having accepted the challenge to PARTICIPATE in my life this year, I am excited that I have been invited to be one of the teachers for an online class coming later this year.  And of course I said yes to participating in that!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. OH well done Bernice that's fabulous stuff, I'm loving your diary and journal elements and that you are studying the Psalms, I'm sure you'll be an amazing teacher on the course, I love reading your posts and love your word this year!

  2. This is wonderful - there is so much to it, diary, record, journal, encouragement, study, art...I love it, and you.


I would love you to leave me an encouraging comment. Don't forget to put your name. I love to know who is commenting. Thank you.
