October/November/December 2018

So forgive me folks if I seem a bit lazy on the old updating of this page, but things are a little busy. I have just started a new job and have now upgraded from part time work to full time, so my website has taken a back seat for the time being. However I am continuing to read the bible on a daily basis and I am 'trying' to say the rosary more regularly, as I feel this devotion to Our Lady brings me a great deal of peace and hope.

One quote I am fond of from the bible is as follows:  'Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually' Psalm 105:4

I hope this update finds you well and once I have more news, I will be sure to update you. Until then God bless love from Anita xx
