Posts Tagged ‘pictures’

Recently I have started combining two tech blessings – the YouBible app and my mobile phone’s camera, using YouBible’s nifty ‘image’ menu that appears if you underline a verse.

I’ve enjoyed some great views of late – tropical islands, misty autumn mornings and some spectacular West Brom sunsets. And so I’ve used these backgrounds when God’s word has spoken to me. Creating the image – choosing and sizing a font, selecting a crop of a photo – has enabled me to meditate as I create.

And now my blogging software is enabling me to share these Bible pictures with you, and put them up here on the internet in a rather beautiful tableau. Sometimes technology makes me smile.

Upupstairs (as it’s called) is beginning to take proper shape now. Our recent days have been filled with carpet quoters and a succession of tradesmen hefting new firedoors in and about. It’s looking lovely. The kitchen has almost more work surface than mine. The Vicar and I have been talking about moving up there and leaving the MTs to it with the kids on the lower floors. Rocky mentioned that he’d then have the woodburning stoves on the ground floor, which I must admit is still a bit of a draw for living in our allocated space rather than heading skywards.

This morning work officially began on our attic. Rocky has moved all his stuff downstairs to the spare bedroom and the space is clear for renovations. Thanks to a local trust, we are able to convert the four rooms into a much more usable Ministry Trainee space – two bedrooms, a living room/dining room/kitchenette and a shower room.

So the house was rather full today – four workmen in the attic, four kids (mine plus a bonus one) and then the Vicar, Rocky and me. Thankfully we were able to spread out on three floors. And after taking a few snaps so we can remember how it looked ‘Before’, I escaped out to fetch the lamb for Thursday’s Passover meal. The workers will be back at 8am tomorrow. Hopefully they won’t be drilling immediately…
