Once a man was asked "what do you gain by regularly praying to God?" The man replied, "Nothing.... but let me tell you what I lost: Anger, ego, greed. depression, insecurity and fear of death. Sometimes the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing, which ultimately is the gain."
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
