Armour up!

Updated: May 21

Hi everyone, I hope you’re keeping well.

Today is a very special day for Timothy as it’s his birthday! 🎂 If it was puppets we’d be having a cake and celebrating 🥳 but unfortunately Timothy you will have to imagine we are singing beautifully in our best Reach voices to you... and of course Theo who’s birthday it was on Sunday. A massive “Happy Birthday” to you both from all of us in Reach.

So still no school for most of you. I bet you never thought you’d miss school this much. I hope you’re getting outside for some exercise in the sunshine for your daily dose of vitamin D, it really does help you feel better. It is important that you take good care of yourselves. I have been putting my 'armour' on each day (see Ephesians 6:10-18). The belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace and the helmet of salvation (to protect my mind, my eyes, my ears and my mouth). I’m lifting up my shield 🛡 of faith to protect me and having the sword 🗡 of the spirit in my hand (this is the Bible).

Even though we’re in lockdown, God is with us and can help to protect us from temptation, fear, negative or wrong thoughts. An attitude of gratitude helps us too, so please keep thinking of 3 things to be grateful for each day and staying in contact with friends and family. FaceTime, WhatsApp and Zoom are my 3 things to be grateful for today.

Take care, stay safe, stay home

We’re praying for you
