Hello, friends. From today onwards, I will be posting my blog every evening, rather than every morning. This should release me from the daily conflict between wanting to pray, and the pressure to publish each day’s blog as early as possible. I hope it will also prove helpful for early risers to find the day’s blog in their email in-box as soon as they wake up, rather than having to wait for its arrival.
✝️ With love and thanks to all who visit and follow here, from Ruth xxxxxx
