Isle of Skye here we come!

Hello to all today!
I just noticed that Tuesdays Timely tale has Monday's date on it! There seems to be a wee problem with the blogs clock and I (surprisingly) don't know how to fix it.
Anyhow the coffee morning went well with a fairly good crowd in. There was a little bit of sadness as at the business meeting for our church last night, Jonathan read out our letter of resignation. We feel God has been calling us to the Isle of Skye for some time now.This is a picture we took while on holiday. It really is far more beautiful than this picture shows. God has confirmed this call through His Word and we hope to move there next May. Our role there as yet is still in God's plans, but there are many opportunities to get involved in the community life of the village and church there. We look to God to lead us and guide us every step of the way and all the while He is revealing His plans we want to be open to His leading. Gorgie Mission has been our lives for the past 4 years and we will continue to be involved during this year. We are looking to God to also lead and guide them. It has been a hard decision and it is with sadness we leave but also with excitement over the next chapter in our life and work for Jesus. I hope that over this year as you make the transition with us through this blog that we will all have lots to thank God for. His Word says in Jeremiah 29: 11 " For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope". That is a promise for all you who love God. Someone has said you can't break God's promises by standing on them. Claim this one for yourself!

Sad news for Edinburgh and the folk at Gorgie, but for those of your blog-readers here on the Isle of Skye (I'm sure there are millions of us!!) we are so thrilled and so much looking forward to having you with us. By the way, somewhere under your blogger setings you should be able to change the clock settings to GMT!
