This week has been quite different to what I normally do at YWAM! I flew back to the Black Country, England, the place where Josh and I lived for our first 3 years of marriage and the place I was born and bred. My nanny Dorothy has just gone through major heart surgery and after all the years of being so close to my grandparents who have been so nurturing and caring to the whole family, I just had to see my nan!
I attempted to cook a roast dinner! Nan enjoyed it, but I knew it wasn’t as tasty as her usual meals 🙂 I shared with them what we have been learning in YWAM about the glory of God and we watched Andre Rieu orchestra in concert on dvd. This show is a fantastic example of what it looks like when everyone plays in harmony together with a common cause of bringing joy and true beauty!
My grandparents have been amazing role models to me of what it means to love another person and what faithfulness can look like in a culture which sadly seems to have lost the meaning of right and wrong, healthy family life and long term relationships.
