Thankful for my friends :)

The title kind of sums up what this blog is about! (Feeling v soppy today!)

Since moving to Aberdeen, God has blessed me with a crazy amount of seriously awesome people. The sort of people you can laugh with, cry with, have fun with, learn from, be encouraged by, and just generally spend hours with and not get bored!

You all mean tons to me, I hope you know how much, and I am so, so grateful for you all.

Jesus, Be the Centre

People influence each other, hang round someone for too long and you will pick up their lingo(or even accent!)

Christians are by definition, followers of Christ

What would happen if we all spent more time with Jesus, not because we have to, or because we are told to, but out of our love for him.

We would be influenced by him, we would see things through his eyes; people, situations challenges we face. We would be completely changed - and would have such a profound effect on the world around us.

The New Testament shows that this is true, 12 disciples then, and a huge amount of Christians 2000 years later.

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace"

What a challenge for us, to make Jesus the centre of our lives, to dwell in his presence, to see things the way he does and to love as he does.
