Paul opened The Times in early January 2013 to find himself described by Matthew Parris as: “a pleasant, gentle mannered, middle-aged, Scottish biker.” If it’s in The Times it’s official, we really are a middle-aged couple. As if this wasn’t enough Paul then appeared on a BBC TV programme about Middle Aged Bikers. Isn’t middle-age supposed to creep up on you, not be publicly announced in The Times and on the BBC?
Being officially middle aged we’ve decided to pace ourselves a bit better in 2013 by spreading our engagements and cutting down on the blog, so in January Paul built a new Study at home and we took just three meetings. With Marian concentrating on Aletheia at Coton Green Church Paul went solo to speak at a motorbike club and church service. It’s important walk with the Lord, fresh and alive or as you start to wear down your ministry soon wears down with it!
Oh well, if this is middle age let’s rejoice there are great days ahead.
