It's Lonely Out Here.....
I did mention in the website when I set it up that if anyone would like to join me in organising the events I would really welcome it. I love doing it (always wanted to be a wedding planner!) but often two heads (or more) are better than one and definitely more pairs of hands are useful!
I started inviting people to my house for Brunch and hear about the love of our Father because I have such a passion for this message that I wanted as many people as possible to hear about it. Soon people who had done Fatherheart A & B schools joined us because afterwards there is always a hunger to be around people who have experienced the same revelation and learn more. Which is where the conferences were born out of. We now have a wonderful mix of people from all denominations, some who have not experienced a Fatherheart school and some who have done many but all with a hunger to experience who God really is to us and in relation to Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Moving on......... leg still in plaster and such glorious weather. I love gardening but haven't been able to do much out there but Father continues to teach me so much through this. Although I always used to moan about having too many books I would like to read I would always feel guilty just sitting and doing that. I have amazing birds in my garden so decided to do the RSPB birdwatch the weekend before my accident. When the information came it said you had to watch continually for 2 hours! As you can imagine I didn't! I would watch for 10minutes then go and do a job & come back and do another 10 minutes.......... So now I'm reading books and he's given me an opportunity, in February, to sit outside and do it. This means I can also watch the birds
plus the hundreds of frogs I have in my pond at the moment being very amorous! I have had to slow down and learn to just "be".
I have also learned to let go, which hasn't been entirely easy and is still something I'm working on, but I've always been a bit of a control freak. Not a good combination with a people pleaser! I was one of those people who couldn't wait to explain and then wait for someone else to do something when I could do it much quicker and more efficiently myself! People have been so kind since my accident, walking my dogs and bringing shopping, but at first I really struggled whether they would walk the dogs for long enough, at the same time of day as I do. The dogs didn't care as long as they were walked....... Then if I asked for some shopping and they'd bring the wrong thing or a different version of what I'd normally have, I'd be a bit miffed. I have now learnt to be grateful and content. It is also why I started this blog by asking if anyone would like to help me with events because I no longer find it a task to share things. I have run myself ragged for many years either trying to please others or thinking no one can do it as well as me. At the end of the day, does it matter? Bouncing ideas off of each other brings life to a project and gives it many facets. So if you live relatively close to me and would like to help let me know!
Thank you Father for revealing these things to me!
