About

My name is Emily, and I’m a daughter to Steve and Heather, sister to Sarah (and now sister-in-law to Ben and aunt to Phoebe!) and I’ve been blessed with so many lovely friends I can’t list you all here! I like mountains, trees, tea, reading detective stories, good conversation with friends, films, following Jesus, hanging out with family, walking, taking photographs and a heap of other stuff… some of this will become apparent if you stick around and read the blog.

Explaining what I’m thinking out loud has never been a strong point of mine, so this is an experiment in explaining some of my thoughts in writing.

The idea for the first post, which I hope doesn’t sound too pretentious, came from reading a passage in Genesis, right at the start of the Bible, where one ordinary guy is visited by the LORD… This wasn’t some kind of ethereal, weird, out-of body encounter – he actually met, spoke with, and fed the Seen LORD. (Read the account for yourself here: Genesis 18 ). In only a very small (but nonetheless wonderful) way, this is a glimpse of what a life lived as a Christian can look like – sheltering under a tree with the One who was sent in generous, over-flowing love, making extravagant and seemingly impossible promises to undeserving and unbelieving listeners. It’s really good news, and I’m going to enjoy the opportunity of pondering on it more.

Thanks for stopping by – do say hello and leave some thoughts of your own behind!
