You’re an answer to prayer!

Answers to Prayer

Wow – now that’s a thought!… actually being an answer to someone’s prayer!!

Amazing how we can overlook that fact … God can actually allow me to be His answer!… so many times we look to get answers we can miss an important element – I might actually be needed!

Oh, I’m not usually grumpy in the morning… just not always really alert!! Continue reading

Are You Due an Eye Test?

I’ve had itchy eyes for a wee while and wondered if it was my contacts, or what?… turns out I’m probably allergic to some seasonal thing in the air – few  eye drops and ease off on how long I wear the contacts for each day – and it’s sorted.

As usual I pondered … on eye tests!

How we need them regularly… eyes change as you get older, lenses or glasses need to be tweeked and the amazing way the optical specialist is able to know how healthy you are by looking at your retina!  Amazing! Continue reading
