New Water Feature

Ok, we are in the middle of the coolest thunderstorm. We saw a cloud encompassing the peak behind our house (Tauhara) and heading our way....and suddenly we are in the middle of a cloud. There is water POURING down the windows - deafeningly so! I dared Dave to go out for a run....but he went to the gym.

Meanwhile there is so much water we now have our very own waterfall!


Earlier this week I was wandering lonely as a cloud (in a thematic kind of way)...and took some pictures of our house from the other water feature - the river. You can just see it perching up at the top of the reserve.


I also found a little something to play with....


In other news...this past week has been rather a lonely one for me with not too much happening. But the rest of the Father Heart gang got back from Auckland on Thursday night. So on Friday I invited them round for a good old fashioned English evening - a curry and episodes of Black Adder.

On Saturday I snuck into James & Denise's house to get surprises lined up for their return....including an invite to The Chronicles of Narnia, complete with bars of Turkish Delight....

And today they finally returned from their trip...to be greeted at Taupo airport with much excitement from us all. It is SO great to have them here! James wants to talk to me about getting his book started asap....so I should have a great project to be working on soon.

Meanwhile some very exciting news - Sarah D. booked her ticket this week so she is arriving in NZ on 7th February! YEYYY!!!

Ok, Dave and I are watching an entire series of Friends (that arrived in our boxes)....so I must get back to it.

P.S. We leave for the UK on the 19th Dec....

Hello little chicken (Scottish term of endearment). What a great update, though the responder in me (second lowest language) leaped up and hit the roof when I picked up on some of the sadder parts in the post...

We love you Adele Richards! And Holy Spirit does too! Fill her up with your love Daddy - smother her in chocolate like love Jesus!

The rope swing looks fun - get Dave to swing on it in a Jeremy Beadle like manner, only to fall off. And what's this about Dalley coming out to NZ!? She didn't run it by us yet? We'll have words.

Off to prophetic pres...

love you,
Alyn & AJ

Adele, I love the water feature and the pictures of the area around your home…there is a great difference between where you live and Toronto…however it looks very peaceful and a great place to be able to seek the face of god and to really hear what he is saying to you with out all the outside noise of a city…it looks like an amazing place to live…
