Are people here?

Post by Jackalyn » Sun Feb 02, 2020 7:58 am

Yet again, it's been so long. How are You?

Just to fill in anyone who knew me and to get the conversation rolling in the hope of a reply, (I used to find this board fun and useful but notice that it is underused.) The last years were taken up with writing "Help for Single Christians,' changing ministries and doing a free online Bible course which ultimately led to me discovering I was an Apostle...then I got ordained, my Dad went to be with Jesus and I moved all in the same week. It took a while to recover! Meanwhile, Freya the Catblog Cat continued to be her usual self and we both moved to a Ranch with horses on and a Christian Retreat. I am never sure if I am meant to be Ranch Manager or cleaner but I mostly clean the place. However, miracles happen and it is lovely to have different groups to meet. Ther is a lake and plenty of wood to walk in. The downside is the place gets very, very muddy and you have to keep your good shoes in your bag or car.

I now live in a wooden hut with a tin roof but it is nice and I love having the fellowship around me.

Glad to see you back. You are right the message boards are quite silent. Even the numbers in the weekly challenge have gone down a lot. It sounds like God has been keeping you busy. You dealt with a lot of big changes in such a short time period. Working with horses sounds awesome. Again :welcome back!

The horses are not my province. I just chat to them. The other day I said, (to a horse in a field here,) "Hello Horse, What's your name.) To my surprise it said, "Hello, my name is Google Assistant."

I should forget my smartphone when I go for walks.

God knew everyone here needed a laugh.
