Photo Shoot At The Beach And Other Stuff

Hope you are all well and have had a great week so far.

This week I’ve had a few things going on pushing things in the right direction.  I hope you all enjoyed last weeks blog about Sass Harding Photography, which if you missed you can read here.  If you follow me on facebook or instagram you will know that Sass and myself, along with Saffie dog, took a trip to Whitstable for a photo shoot on Wednesday.  We had such a lot of fun and were so blessed with the weather.  The sun was out, the wind was blowing but although there was a bit of a nip in the air it was beautiful.  In my mind that is perfect weather, especially for a walk along the beach.  I will be sharing some of the photos with you once they have been edited.  I’ve had a sneak preview and I’m really pleased with the way they have come out.  I would highly recommend Sass if you are looking for a photographer for any occasion.

I did somehow manage to lose my phone along the way and had no idea where it could be as we had walked quite a way.  I couldn’t believe it but I did feel really peaceful.  As you can imagine, my first port of call was to pray.  I just simply asked that I would be able to find it.  After looking in a couple of places that I thought it could have been we decided to head back.  When I got home, I looked on my ipad at the amazing app called ‘find my iphone’ which, if you have ever used you will also know how marvelous it is.  For those of you who haven’t experienced the genius of this app I shall explain.  The first thing you can do is reset the phone from your ipad to show a message on the front screen saying the phone has been lost and a number so that whoever finds the phone can call to let you know they have found it.  It also locks the phone so that no on can see your personal information.  I mean how cool is that?  Even cooler though is that it shows you a map and the exact location of where your phone is.  Long and short of it, myself and Madie drove back to Whitstable to the part of the beach the app was showing and low and behold, there it was!  Now that is what I call an answered prayer.  God does use technology to answer our prayers.

Also this week I had a meeting with another friend who has recently started her own business.  I will be doing a blog on her and her new venture in the not too distant future, so more inspiration to follow.

I heard from the hospice who have said they now have all the information they need for me to be able to start there soon.  It’s taken quite a long time to come together but we are nearly there.  I’m expecting to hear from them in the early part of next week to confirm an induction date.  I really can’t wait to start now.

Lastly, the kids group at church that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago started this week.  We had about 30 children between the ages of 5 and 11.  As you can imagine it was pretty full on, especially after they had all been in school all day and had tons of energy.  It was as they say a ‘baptism of fire’!  The upshot of it though was that the kids had a great time and learned more encouraging and good things about God.  I felt a little out of my depth but I guess that’s what happens when you step out.  The parents said the kids had a great time and myself and the lady that is heading up the group had a good debrief and have some new ideas on ways to make it even better.  It’s exciting to be a part of something so very different to what i would  normally do.

That’s what’s been happening in Kates shoes so tell me, what have you been doing?

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend whatever your plans.  I’m off to a spa tomorrow to celebrate my lovely Mums birthday with my 3 sisters – lovely.

Take care and God bless
