Max

#520 This is Max for #day4 of Happy Animal Life. The goal is to post a picture of your pet once a day for 5 days. Your post demonstrates that you take a stand against #animalabuse. Pets share their lives with us for a time and all too quickly they are gone – make the most of each moment!Nominate two people a day to continue with this.
Today I nominate Simon Whittaker and Ali Tuckley

Wheel of life

#459 The #buddhist symbol of a #wheel reminds us that life goes on and there is nothing new…I find that idea both comforting and depressing. My #prayer is that we all bring something #unique and #new to God’s awesome creation. 

Feel the joy

#424 When did you last feel the #joy of #life #love #friendship #family and #work? #getthejoyback #otherwisewhatisthepoint 

Gaining perspective


#315 #life can sometimes feel a bit like a wheel…like you’re going round and round, finishing one task only to complete the next one. When something happens to take you off the #wheel or out of the cycle, it is often quite a shock at first, but such events can also be blessings as they re-centre us. A good few years ago I had quite a serious bicycle accident and whilst it was difficult to get to grips with, I gained a #perspective on life which I had not previously had. I realised what was important, what I needed to be putting my energies into and began to see what had been draining me. An unfortunate event ended up being life-changing in a very positive way. That #reassessment needs to happen regularly, and become a discipline as I so often forget that perspective!

#believe

#290 What do you #believe about life? Your place in the world? God or a divine figure? Suffering? These are huge questions, and yet I’m not sure how much I really thought about these things before teaching Religious Education. The students I taught claimed not to think about these things too much either, and yet they had #firmlyheld ideas almost straight away. What surprises me is that when I look back on the last ten years, so many of my beliefs have changed and adapted with my experiences…my views and #theology have changed significantly, the more I have thought about these #ultimatequestions How much do you think about them?

#192 This is Zola…a new friend! She is just adorable. As I held her and got to know her a little more I was struck by #life. We are all #alive but what is the essence of that life? Zola’s chest expanded and contracted as she took tiny breaths, just like any animal…is breathing the #essenceoflife? Or is it something much more complex? Thanks @divvy_livi for your inspiration with Zola! (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
