2015 marks a significant shift.

I’m not taking many photos, and have little to add to “The Blog”.

I’ve just uploaded “work” pictures taken yesterday.

That’s when I found this snap from a fortnight ago.

Chez Moi, avec la neige.

At the time I was disappointed not to have taken the picture earlier, before the snow started to melt.  I hadn’t because the sky started out grey, and only brightened as my Pilates instructor was showing me a new routine.

Today I discovered she’d had a serious operation, which got me thinking.

How does God speak today?

Recently I’ve been reading Leviticus, and I’m getting  picture that I (we) place too much value in possessions, and permanence.

I’m particularly refreshed by the sentiments of Leviticus 27:18

“But if he consecrates his field after the Jubilee, the priest will calculate the price for him in proposition to the years left until the next Year of Jubilee, so that the valuation will be reduced”

Most real estate buyers look at their investment as something which escalates in value, which provides the owner with greater “security”.

But what if our expectations are be too high?

If we’re ill we expect the NHS or Private Medical Care to sort things. Whilst the general trend with property values is ever upward there are times when the reverse is true.

This is when the media looks to apportion blame, usually towards the banking & regulatory sectors.

But back pedal a little, how does God speak to your average Joe or Sally today?

Maybe he speaks loudest by challenging what people think are their strengths.  One moment my instructor was a very supple healthy tutor, and shortly later she was blind in one eye.

We wish her well, but is it The Lord speaking?
