Goodbyes are seldom easy and this week has seen a few goodbyes. On Sunday we said goodbye to our congregations where we have been for the last 12 years - not easy. They gave us some lovely gifts, of which these are a couple

Today was the last day of school, so I said goodbye to my work colleagues and to the children. Although I have only actually worked there for the last 12 weeks, I have been associated with the school for the last 12 years, as my children went there. Again not easy. But they did give me this great gift - a 'flitting survival kit' containing all the things you need most when moving house - tea, coffee, cake, chocolate.

We are almost ready now to move. Pickfords come on Monday to start packing and by the end of next week we should be safely into our new, albeit temporary, home. A lot of our furniture and possessions are going into storage (including all my scrapbooking stuff -eek)  as we hope this move will not be for too long before a new manse can be purchased.

All ready to start with some new beginnings.

All the best - a someone said to us when we moved on to a new church "Different sheep, same Shepherd|"
God bless you richly in the new pastures!!

I hope the move goes well and you soon settle into your new church.

You, Gordon and the boys are very much in thoughts and prayers here at Craiglockhart as we look forward to the new ministry.

PS bring your wellies!
