Sorry to hear your week has been hard. Thinking of you and praying you'll be sustained through and beyond it.

Ruth Gouldbourne

Is it a nasty form of schadenfreude to be grateful it is not just me having a hard week? : )

Thank you for this


Tony Maude

Can I echo Ruth's query?

Jim Gordon

Thankfully life is becoming more amenable to a spirit of thankfulness. Catriona's prayers eh - the effectual fervent prayers of a righteous woman?
Ruth,my take on your question is that I take such gratitude as your spirit of solidarity with me, as being similar to a fellowship of sufferings! :)
Tony, can you hear the echo of my answer? ;)

I've never heard the expression "soul sulking" before. I should have - it's one I need! Coming late to this post after a trip, can I hope that this week is looking better?

Jim Gordon

Thanks Chris - much better, mostly due to colleagues and friends who know about restoring balance, equilibrium and perspective. "Soul sulking" is my description of feeling spiritually scunnered, not by God but by some who claim to speak on God's behalf.


Well if you don't mind, I shall appropriate it forthwith. I have been there for some months now! Glad about your wise companions.
