February 2009

May I offer you a belated Happy New Year. It seems a bit strange to say that when we are already at the end of January, but I do have a reason. As I have said before I’ve been having treatment for cancer and I’ve just finished the radiotherapy so I feel that I have now entered a new year.

Since I was diagnosed last August I have done a lot of thinking about life and its meaning and I have come to the conclusion that life is far too short for all of the petty squabbles that we seem to get into. Even with the economic crisis that the world is facing at the moment life is still wonderful, and no I am not looking at it through rose-tinted glasses, the physical world is beautiful. Have you had a look out of your window at God’s wonderful creation today? It might be freezing cold and wet and miserable but look at the birds, do they worry about the economy? No, they live every day as if it were their last and we should do the same. Forget all of the petty worries of this life and think about the life to come – the life promised to all who believe in God the Father through his Son Jesus Christ. Want to know more? Then why don’t you go to your local Church or Alpha Course and sign up for everlasting life in those heavenly spaces promised to you. See you there.
