Ok so I know I have been very blog silent over the last few weeks.
I was in the UK for 4 days last week getting my hernias looked at!!! The frustrating thing is I will have to return again in 6 weeks for more scans before they can schedule me in for an operation! I got home late Thursday night was kind of busy on Friday, then I preached at the Anglican church on Sunday morning, which was lovely.
Yesterday I caught the ferry to Denia and drove to a little town just outside Alicante to get our vomit van converted from a UK vehicle into a Spanish vehicle. Believe it or not they couldn't do it in Ibiza, because it's a Japanese import to the UK and they never made a european version. I had to find a specialist which is expensive but we need it done by the summer.
The hotel I am staying at until Friday said it had internet, it did, but somehow my power book won't connect, so I am paying extra at a little cafe over the road!!!
Got to stave off the boredom, so I have brought 3 books to study and am going to read through Exodus. Along with some preparation for the summer with regards prayer walks, team orientation and small tours for our teams. I am treating it like being on a little mini retreat.
This is elderly ex-pat world!! I can't believe how grey and how british this place is.
Not a lot of people to talk to here so I am going to practice silence whilst here!
I love this quote from Mother Teresa:
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.
