Will smama and Songbird over at Revgals say; It's Leap Day!! Whether you're one of the special few who have a birthday only once every four years, or simply confused by the extra day on the calendar, everyone is welcome to join in and play our Leap Year Friday Five.
Tell us about a time you:
1. Leapt before looked
In some ways when we moved to Texas from the UK we leapt before we looked. Tim's company were the supposed experts but were hopeless when it came to recognising the difference in school systems etc, and so we entered a huge learning curve. But we are glad we did it. Both Emma and Joanne had their passion for music nurtured in Texas, and they will both make music their careers! We are also glad to be home again now!
2. Leapt to a conclusion
Leap to a conclusion????? Moi????? erm the catalogue of incidents is too long and too embarrassing, and it is something I am trying to overcome!!!!
3. Took a Leap of Faith
Selling up home, and exchanging our ordinary life to move to Norfolk and work for the Methodist Church, to candidate for Ordained Ministry and to set up White-fields Trust! When I look back my life is almost unrecognisable, but I am aware that God's hand has been with us all the way!!!
My work with Journey Into Wholeness is something I would never have envisaged!!!
4. Took a literal Leap
The conversation went,
Tim: You'll need to jump in soon, to stop us hitting the jetty.
Me: No the water is too deep.
Tim: No it isn't it'll barely reach your waist...
Me: No I'll be swimming!
Tim: No you won't, look how close to shore we are!
Me: ( bowing to his superior sailing knowledge) OK...
...And so I jumped.... to surface a few seconds later spluttering....
Me: would you like me to swim to shore now???
I haven't let him forget that one!!!!
5. And finally, what might you be faced with leaping in the coming year?
Another move, this time to be "Stationed" as a Minister in a Methodist Church... right now I don't know where...... Also submitting my MA dissertation.....
