Hello dear friend,

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe in the coronavirus pandemic. What a nightmare it has turned out to be. Understatement! Just when some countries think they have it beaten - it breaks out again. Look at the horrendous situation in India. May God have mercy on them. If you want to make a donation to help them I found an organization which is an umbrella over a number of charities which are currently putting their whole focus onto India, it is the Disasters Emergency Committee. Here's the link: donation@dec.org.uk


Much has happened since I last wrote last July. For one thing my prediction that we would soon have an effective vaccine has come about. That we have a number of them is wonderful. In Wales the number of infections has come right down and so we are finally able to meet up with people outside our own households in the open air. This is a real blessing. But we are still keeping a distance between us but that's a small price to pay for safety I feel.


As I said before I have been very interested to see that during lockdown a lot of people began to look for God by tuning in to church services and programmes. Brilliant! They went to the right Person for answers.  


My latest news is that I have had a debut novel accepted for publication by Roundfire Books which is very exciting! It's actually the fourth novel I have written - so I've had lots of practise! But as it will be the first in print it is my debut. Yeah! 


Last time I posted that I had a further non-fiction book accepted for publication this one by Circle Books. It is a prayer guide which shows you how to have a deeper relationship with Christ through talking to Him from your heart and listening for His answers. More details on both of these coming soon.

 

Meantime, I wish you a safe and happy week in which to count your blessings. So, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in right now, I hope you can try to embrace the gift of life. And if you are in any kind of difficulty say this prayer, or one of your own: Dear Lord, please help me to remember that You are always with me. And that with You I can overcome every test. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen


My book 9 Days to Heaven, How to make everlasting meaning of your life, is a practical guide to joyful living which has already helped many through a crisis in their life.  To see the book trailer click on this link:  http://youtu.be/154luv8KMns


The book is available as a paperback but to buy the e-book on Amazon click on this link:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Days-Heaven-Make-Everlasting-Meaning-ebook/dp/B00AIR8CSC


 Stay safe, stay close to God.


May God continue to bless you.
