New year, new activities

This year has begun with two of the groups I belong to – a choir and a writing group – needing to make decisions about the future. I believe that there will be a positive outcome for both.

My blogging has not yet included a book review, mainly because I haven’t been reading as much as usual. For the last few years if I had an idle moment, I’d pick up a book. Recently I have been picking up my knitting instead.

I have also been neglecting my piano-playing, which I enjoy. Perhaps I need to schedule a time to play.

Last year I heard a sermon based on the passage from Isaiah about God doing a new thing. New things are now being launched by the Church I belong to. My blog is perhaps not the place to write about them in detail, but I can say that it is encouraging to see new things happening after all the difficulties of the lockdowns. Perhaps you might pray with me for a blessing on all new, God-led initiatives by Churches.

As snowdrops and other spring flowers are showing signs of new life, may that also be the case in our lives and communities.

After being stuck with my family history research, I have begun to find some interesting things, which should lead to a writing project some time in the future. Details of people’s lives are interesting, whether they were prospering or had times of adversity. Finding a writer on each side of my family (although not necessarily an ancestor in the direct line) has been interesting. One was a clerk and the other a printer and writer.

My posts for the next two weeks are almost ready. Those of you, who follow my blog for the book reviews should not be disappointed!
