Sitting on the beach reading about prayer...feeling the wind on my face, seeing the different levels/shapes/sizes/colours of cloud, hearing a little boy laugh as a wave catches him too close to the edge...and being moved to stop reading about prayer and start praying.

An impromptu visit to Chichester to meet Jess.

Really not wanting to get outta bed this morning. Getting up, and then thinking 'Hang on, it's fresher's week! We get to meet freshers and tell them about Jesus!' - and promptly being like a bottle of pop all day.

Meeting the hall group leaders and getting excited with them about hall groups.

Lucy wandering around all lost trying to kill time with an hour left before she can go to church. Telling her to go to read a book. Lucy surfacing from her room nearly two hours later.
Me: "Why are you here?"
Lucy: "Eh?!"
Me: "What happened to church?"
Lucy: (confused look, looks at her watch) "Oh no, I forgot to go to church!"
Me: "Oh dear" (laughs a lot)
Lucy: "Now I'm in trouble"
Me: "Yep. Or there's grace."
