Focus on Life - Week 47


I've been back and forth about what to post for this week's prompt Centrepiece - 'the central, most important feature of your day, week, life!', as Sally put it.

Trouble is, the answer is different to each part of the prompt...

The 'centrepiece' of my day, the foundation, is quiet time, prayer and Morning Pages - my day unravels if it doesn't start with them.

The 'centrepiece' of my life is my family - who, what would I be without them?

But the 'centrepiece' of this past week has been my new blog Another Deep Day


For the past 3 weeks I've been doing this course with Susannah Conway


and have been so inspired and motivated (getting up at 3.30am some mornings this week!), I've decided to pool all my favourite writing, photos, etc. in one place and wind down this, and my other, blogs.

I will keep posting the FoL posts here - just to keep them altogether. But if you do have a chance to visit the new blog, I would love to see you there - the kettle's always on :)

PS Last week's prompt asked us to Reflect, and one thing I didn't say - I have so enjoyed sharing this year with you, and I hope we won't all lose touch...
One way would be to follow each other's blogs. I know I'm not great at it (I tend to get overwhelmed by emails, and I really don't want to join google+), but I think I will join/follow many of you before the end of the year :)
Anyway, 'tis just a thought...

I agree, Claire, I've so enjoyed "meeting" everyone and hope not to lose touch.
I will see you over at your new blog!
Enjoy the rest of your course!

I also agree and have enjoyed the glimpses of each participant's life and what they share with this group.

Indeed, it's been a fun time meeting and getting to know everyone through this venue. I'll miss it too. Good luck with your new blog.

I'm really hoping someone will take over from Sally or she will carry on! I follow quite a few blogs but I rarely go look at them.. I use too but then blogger did one of it's changes so they became less obvious! Hope your new blog survives I always start off with good intentions!

Sounds like you're off to a fun project with your new blog! congrats and enjoy :)

I just signed up to follow your new blog, Claire. Oh, and by the way, life begins at 50. *smile*

I too agree. I would love to stay in touch w/everyone, but I'm not as good as I want to be with that, either. Following by email helps me when people have an email button on their blog - I tend not to ever go to google+ even though I'm on it. I am headed over now to check out your new blog! Have fun w/your course.
