Loo With a View


Today was the day…

I got to see the loo with a view. This is in the guest bathroom on the top floor of the new house. The bathroom is at the top of the stairs before entering Julian’s apartment. There is a spacious window next to the loo and they’ve just opened up the space in readiness for the window…

In the same room, but in front of the bath is this window…

When sitting in the bath, you can only see the sea, the beach and the mountain.

Meanwhile, the stairs are slowly coming on. Six have concrete in them. It’s looking good. I think in about a week, we should be able to walk up these steps to get to the top floor.

So that’s been my visit to Echo for today.

I had a good morning of work with a number of interviews set up and a good team Skype meeting.

I enjoyed a visit from David as well.

I also spent some time on the phone to my sister, who is currently in hospital in Johannesburg. She has been admitted for tests following jaundice and nausea. She’s having an MRI tomorrow before treatment is decided. I am praying for Anne.

Meantime, this evening Julian arrives, which is the reason for the early blog.

Grateful for the drop.

James 3:17

The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

That’s amazing. If I think I have wisdom, that’s the criteria against which to weigh it.

The best is yet to come.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,

Helga xx 🙂
