I've been reading a book about increasing one's vocabulary.

We're getting quite accustomed to the notion of recycling.

I'd like to be better at UPcycling - that is to acquire something that is being recycled and adapt it to suit your own needs, through DIY/sewing/ painting/ changing etc

And today I read an article about PREcycling - which means to get beyond the shops and grow your own.

Its what you do before you do anything else, like prayer - I continually recycle prayers but now I'm on a mission to UPcycle the tired ones and PREcycle my own more often.

Plug Ins

I've created a plug in charger for drained parents.

Its called prayer.

Why is it I often think of it as a last resort when really it should the sustaining plug in of my life? Instant connectivity to the creator and sustainer I serve and worship. Let me be plugged in more.

We sang in our worship event today 'Hungry I come to you, I am weak but I know your love does not run dry' thats me, weak and in need of more connectivity.

'Pedal you've got to pedal up that hill'

As Reuben David has been learning how to use pedals on a bike I've noticed how my life is fairly similar. Its so much easier to pedal backwards and get nowhere and do nothing other than accumulate frustration.

But when one puts effort into the action and pedals forward you get results, even if that means pedalling uphill through a barrier of tiredness, pain, disappointment or failure etc

Today I'm putting a whole lot of effort into pedalling.

Swans Reflecting Elephants

It seems to me that blogging is a good way for people to quietly muse their thoughts in a sort of out loud fashion.

So I'm coming back to a place that allows me to ponder life and celebrates-seemingly-disjointed-yet-connected-random-thoughts.

My thoughts today are very much random and hardly connected: community, ordination, teeth, and surrealism.

Thank you Salvador Dali for 'Swans Reflecting Elephants'.
