The author of this blog is a very busy, too busy church member, who just feels inspired to put her thoughts and feelings into words. She does believe, because she knows from her own personal experience that the Spirit of the Living God is still speaking, still acting in the world; but it does take a very quiet and still heart to be able to catch His Still small voice. Sometimes our words just drown His words out and we miss the splendour of His works in the world because we are too engrossed with our own.
Also, she feels, since hearing God speak plainly requires from the listener obedience to live a sanctified life, often we prefer to be deaf and like the children of Israel in the wilderness nominate Moses, Aaron or some other person to do our listening for us.
This page is not about it’s author, but about our Divine Author who writes on the tablet of the human heart, and speaks to us in simple, understandable language everyday.
“If out love were but more simple, we would take Him at his word; and our lives would be all sunshine in the sweetness of our Lord.”
Forgive the writer’s simplicity but delight in the sweetness of the Lord, always.
Finally, 8 years from the start of this blog, here is a photo of me … a little older, a little plumper, but still windswept and in the habit of sheltering under a tree in the wilderness, also known as my back garden. Posted just for the enquirer who left a comment to say he was a little disappointed that there was so little about me in this about

Just to let you know, I’ve nominated you for the Liebster award. Enjoy 🙂
I cannot think why you should wish to do this, but many thanks. I am not a writer but am becoming more deeply aware even in these last few days that the gift of peace which Jesus has given to me is one which I desire greatly to share. Please pray for me that I might find ways to do this. You are right Iggy empty hands are easier for others to hold…. Many blessings!
Because I enjoy your blog? Please don’t feel you have to answer questions etc. Just know that your contributions are appreciated.

Thank you for visiting, I look forward to reading more of your posts. The world is so very much smaller when shared together in the palm of his hand.
Can you put a “Follow” widget on your blog so I can follow you? If you need help with this contact me through my “Contact Me” page , here:
I think there is one, Robin.
I looked very carefully and couldn’t find one. You can put one on your side bar and it says: ‘Follow This Blog’ – with a box to put an e-mail address in.
Oh. Never mind. I just clicked on the ‘Follow’ at the top in the black bar.
Can you give me a name to call you by? Any name will do, it doesn’t have to be your real one [I use my first and middle names myself].
Call me Jean.
Thank you Jean,

You are welcome!
Thanks so much for reading my post ‘the extraordinary’
I came to your About page to learn more about the author. I am leaving feeling disappointed. An about page that shares something about the author seems a nice idea to me. Perhaps it is shyness or you have your own reasons.
What would you like to know about me?
I do not have much to boast about.
In reality I am simply an older woman who has been very busy for the Lord in all sorts of practical ways. In my own church at the present time I do have quite a lot of authority as the Bishop’s officer. In these later years … I am seeking to relinquish some of my administrative roles in response to a fresh calling from the Lord. Becoming less of a Martha, but cherishing a word from the Lord received more than 50 years ago… “Listen Marta (Martha) was my friend, she believed and trusted in me). These days I tire easily, but my aim is always to be “a simple friend of Jesus.”
I’m interested in where people live, why they started to blog. I like to learn about other corners of the world from people who live there. Food, buildings, special local events etc
Ok will see what I can do!
