So that title strikes of geographical division- the very sort I dislike intensely having grown up in East Anglia and living in the West Country. However, when I ventured up to Sheffield, which is most definitely north, I was shocked an amazed at the amount of snow they had compared to my sprinkling. So, on the Saturday when we explored Longshaw Estate, what was intended to be a photo shoot turned into a snow day… it was just too cold to de-coat and pose.
|So this is my boot but I was just over-excited at how deep the snow was.|
I had a wonderful time exploring a new National Trust with two very dear friends. We have known each other for several years now, thanks to Keswick4Kids, and I love spending time with them. I love their individual styles as well, from Esther’s ombre hair through to the brocade-style dress hiding under Sophie’s coat. It is their individuality that makes me cherish them so much and that I long to see in more people, particularly the church.
I guess what I’m trying very hard not to rant about is a desire to see more individuality within the church. Be modest and honouring to God in the way you dress but don’t let it strip away your personality. God created two amazing people in Esther and Sophie who are each one of a kind. The amazing thing is that God has created each person to be an individual- one of a kind- and wants us to enjoy that fact. So enjoy being the woman or man of God that you were created to be.
