Happy New Year

Hi All

I know it has been quite a while since I have posted so thought I would just write a quick update here. Sorry I have not posted. At present I am away from Korea at a secret location, hiding out with Elvis and Salmon Rushdie ... well actually, I am in NZ recovering from surgery but the above sounds SO much more interesting!

I had my surgery a month ago and it has gone well although at present I am still on house arrest for another 2 weeks! The most common thing that I hear is how lovely it must be to have all that time off. Well ... yes, but its not like time off in the sense that I am not allowed to go beach walking, or walking beyond the house on my surgeon's instructions. So ... I have read and read ...and I am over reading. I am eeking out my Boston Legal Season 4 and not doing much. That extends to thinking. I am not in the space for deep thinking at the moment. When I start to think, the only thing on my brain at present is "grace".

Grace. What a marvellous thing. We say grace. We have grace. We extend grace. We receive grace. We are saved by grace. And, if you are anything like me, you aren't as good as extending it as receiving it?! At the moment I am having to tell myself - show grace. Grace to those around me as I get antsy with healing and grace to myself in this period as well.

So thats the only word I have for you. Receive his grace ... extend his grace and live under His Smile.

Peace to you and yours.
