Emails, the amazon is still burning, bees are still endangered, friends doing amazing things for amazing charities asking for support but I can’t support them all, people needing support in all sorts of ways, work related stuff…. and more.

News feed- Brexit, poverty, the NHS in crisis, will there be medication, all of my children take medications that are life critical! The war in Syria continues, it must not be forgotten. World leaders are acting like spoilt children…. and more.


Local stuff, homelessness in Sheffield is increasing, people are dying, people are hungry… and more…

My to do list seems endless:

I need to weed the garden, rake the leaves, tidy away the pots… and more

I need to do some writing, post some pictures, collect my paintings from the gallery… and more

I need to do some visits, arrange a baptism, catch up with admin… and more

I need to get back in control of my diet, exercise more, I pay for gym membership, but rarely get there…. and more…

The list could go on and on, I need to go walking, vacuum my bedroom carpet, sort out the pile of clothes, and the pile of papers, get on top of my budget…

There is not enough time or resources…. I am not enough…

I feel stuck in my inadequacies….

Loving God hear my prayer, accept my offering of me, this heap of anxiety and fashion a Genesis Day out of the chaos of my life, breathe through me, speak to my anxious thoughts

I hold all of these things before you

I let them go

I breathe your peace….

I am enough….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...

    Love the idea of a ‘Genesis Day’.
    Perhaps we need a Genesis Week / Month / Year – ha ha.
    Thanks for sharing, Sally.
