New, New Life

The Gospel of John Chapter 10 Verse 10 says, in the New International Version:

...I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

This is amplified somewhat in the modern paraphrase "The Message":

...I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.

An awful lot has happened so far in 2016. From a total 'meltdown'; through being 'rescued' and taught new ways of thinking and expressing myself by my dear friend Naomi; learning how much God and His family love me; to the healing of emotional wounds from my past. In parallel with that, I have recently come to the end of my term of office as churchwarden.

So almost everything about life feels as though it has changed. I have a new and different reality to get used to. I am taking some 'time out', as a sort of 'sabbatical', partly to rest after six years hard work, partly because I need to learn about where I am now, and hopefully to discover where I am headed next. It seems right and fitting, biblical even, after six years, to take a sabbatical.
