Remembering a friend: Rob Lloyd

Rob Lloyd. Tomorrow will be one whole year since you've been gone. And i remember. Theologically i don't know that i believe that you're up there somewhere looking down on me.

When i think of you looking down on me... i am a better person i am more hesitant to do dodgy things [because Rob is watching and i [...]

His death was significant and it changed my world. There is a Rob-shaped gap that remains [...]

i was RObbed Too

i love this picture of my buddy Rob [who died just over a week ago from cancer] and everything it expresses¬†– carefree, full of life, plus the symbolism of running off into the distance is not lost on me. But i miss him a lot and it’s only been just over a week. Only? Yeah, something like that. And i think words are my processor so this is really for me, but you’re welcome to [...]

Taboo Topics: Cancer [Intro]

Cancer is a beast! it used to be this far off distant disease that you heard about and was pretty scary, but i'll bet you most people these days know someone who has been through it, is currently suffering from it or undergoing treatment, or knows a number of people who have died from it. my gran, Doris Anderson, died of skin-cancer related issues. as did my uncle David Anderson. and then just recently my [...]

a response to a nonny miss? part iv: receive your own rebuke

i am continuing this series which i feel has gone so much further than the initial email that got it started and has provided some valuable insights which needed a springboard to launch from. so am daily becoming more grateful for it as it has helped me share what i feel have been some helpful ideas about living life to the full. what i am wanting to look at today is something that i have [...]

with friends like these, who needs enemas?

okay, so that title doesn't apply AT ALL here, in fact it the opposite of applies, but it was likely to draw a lot more readers than 'i like my friends' and look, there you are so hi! arrived back home after a good 32 hours or so of travelling [if you exclude the New Jersey/New York trip we took with airforce Jon to get to the airport] from JFK to Dubai for eight hour [...]

psalmthing to chew on: psalm 33 [Guest Post]

one of my best friends, Rob Lloyd, wrote today's guest psalm for us - he is going for another round of cancer treatment today as he heads towards his 30th birthday celebrations so take a minute to say a prayer for him, for healing and protection from the nausea that has accompanied that, and then read his musings on psalm 33 and be challenged and encouraged: One of the most incredible things about God is [...]
