I'm no target!

I was awoken to the realisation that I've had a "target" on my forehead this week... so I ripped it up and threw it away... so many things have been 'attacking' me...

...people on the roads think they're indestructible, so obviously I and my passengers are too.... a man literally stole my petrol pump on Monday! I parked the van at the pump- there was hardly anybody around so plenty of free pumps... I got out of the van and saw him filling up his jerry can with MY pump!! Then he had the cheek to say incredulously, 'You want this petrol IN THAT van?!" What a moron!! I didn't have the courage to fight back... I stood next to him with my arms crossed, wondering what to do...then he walked in to pay and I opened the door and told my client what was going on...he said, "Just drive off. Go to [usual place]". In the end I did. I later realised that the staff inside should have seen what was happening too, so they didn't deserve my client's money!

Lots of little things that make you wonder what's going on!
NOW I know what's going on and I am alert! (Even though right now I could easily fall asleep!)

Be on Guard! Put on the WHOLE armour of God and be reading to STAND!

October Update

July.....was quite a few weeks ago.... I didn't realise how long it has been since I've posted! (again!)

Well, we moved into our 'hotel' and it's awesome! It felt like a hotel because everything was new, clean and modern. Everything WORKS and there is no age-damage like our old place we rented - which was almost 40yrs old.

Our backyard was sludge for a while, so we didn't venture out til about a week ago... it has been raining so much this year!!!! People have been praying for the drought to break for about 10years, and we have finally begun to receive our rain! It's also now spring, the our backyard mud has had some TLC from the sun, and the mud had turned into dried up cracks...so it's easy to walk outside now... but we still need to figure out what to do with the yard.

I was disappointed after we finally had our driveway done...and it was so steep my car didn't want to reverse up....I'm a reverse parker so I was annoyed at the prospect of always reversing out....UNTIL I got a new clutch for my car....now I'm back to reversing, but still perfecting my angle. I drive in forwards when I'm tired or it's raining. There's no point reversing up when you're not thinking clearly!

I baked a cake...and burnt it slightly! YAY for a PERFECT oven! The door stays closed...it's clean...it heats up much quicker...it's awesome! I am slowly breaking myself out of the habit of cooking things for about 20mins longer than usually required! It's a good change!

We got a great deal on blinds...now we need to think about air conditioning and extra fencing... all requiring money!!!! It's nice to know there is no rush....we just do things as we can afford to.
Next projects might be an herb and veggie garden....and some kind of decking or path....

Well, that's all I can think to say about the house for the moment.

Church is going great! We love our new church (and still love the old one, but its no longer our home). I went to a 5.30am prayer meeting yesterday...it was AWESOME!!! I didn't mind getting up at 4.30am on a Saturday... things are really happening in our church!!
It's so good to be in a church where the sense of freedom is so real. Freedom and passion:)

Ok, that's all for now:)
