Feeling tired, uncomfortable today, we stopped to rest for a few days with the Heath family where we had a warm welcome. This evening we all watched ‘I’m a Celebrity’. I found it very interesting, and as I turned to look at Joseph I smiled. He was fast asleep, bless him.
We had supper and drank a mug of hot cocoa, it was delicious.
Dexter the dog entertained this evening, we found him very amusing.
On our journey today, the weather became too cold to carry on, so we stopped in for coffee with Fr David and Fr Sam, who were having their weekly catch-up.
Besides the delicious coffee and biscuits we took a keen interest in their conversations about being obedient to the will of God. It resonated with us, as we’ve recently completely given our will over to God! Still, these cold dark nights, when the going gets tough it is good for us to remember the “Yes” we gave to God at the start – and the joy and hope we have in that trust in God.
After the meeting came to a close we grabbed a few more biscuits for the road – Fr David and Fr Sam declined – something about having perfect figures for Christmas.
Today we bade farewell to Sister Frances and Sioni . We got back in our box (!) to travel to our next destination on our way to Bethlehem. Before we went, Sister Frances got up early for devotions to God and Sioni was quiet. We also met St Benedict who stands on the shelves near to where we were. After breakfast we said our goodbyes and got ready to move on.
Thankfully there were no unexpected events during the night so the midwife Frances was not needed. After breakfast we took Sioni for a walk and then went to the shops for provisions. It was a very cold but sunny day.
We arrived from Walsingham (in a box) at a place called Cardiff and the house of Sister Frances. We met her little dog who is called Sioni. He appears to be very curious and very naughty. We were all very tired so we rested for a while and had supper, after which we watched people dancing on the television. Sister Frances read her books on do-it-yourself midwifery (just in case!!) and we went to bed.
