Hope for the Houston's

Many of you will know some good friends of ours, Candi and Skeet. They lost their little girl, Avery, two years ago today. Please remember them in your prayers at this hard time.

They have had a number of unsuccessful IVF treatments and are now at the stage where they can't afford any more. Candi's sister has set up a website to give them one last go by raising the money they need. It's been up for a while and I've been meaning to link it here so please go to the Hope for the Houston's site to take a look and donate if you feel able. You can do it by a number of different payment methods including Paypal so it couldn't be easier. Every little bit counts so please give whatever you can.

Theo's second birthday

First of all, sorry it's been such a while since I last posted. It's been a hectic few months but I know that's no excuse!

Today, Clare and I remembered our son Theo. As has become tradition, we went to Southwold and said some prayers for him at the end of the pier. We also released two balloons. The sunset was beautiful again and we really had a strong sense of God's presence with us.

The whole day is probably best described in pictures...

A huge thank you to everyone who was sent us cards, emails, texts and so on. It makes such a difference knowing that people are thinking of us!
