Teds happy sad wedding

Teds did get to go to their first wedding after all though it was a much much much smaller affair due to this coronavirus thing. Lots of laughter and lots of smiles in difficult times.

All the best Sam and Jenny!!

Teds tag along on a funeral visit

I often find myself organising funerals and so say to people “Plan what you want in your funeral well in advance then put it in an envelope marked ‘for the vicar’ and put it somewhere safe.” Well Jean who was one of my parishioners from my Llantrisant days had done just that. So I took Teds along to meet Jeans children David and Helen to discuss the funeral arrangements for their mum.

It was sad having to be there as it meant Jean was no longer with us but also we laughed a lot too remembering all her ways and sayings and reflecting on a life well lived. Some people get really grumpy when they get older but not Jean – she was full of life in her Autumn years. An example to us all. Ask me how many hymns shes wants in her service!

And as she was a lady of faith I know that she has gone on before us and we will be reunited again. I am looking forward to that a lot.

Teds observe the Church Committee

Teds came along to the Church Committee meeting this afternoon (PCC). There are lots of joke’s about church committee meetings and how awful they are and how little gets done. I have to say that that is not the case in these parts. Lots of fun and laughter as we worked our way through the agenda and set out our priorities for the next few months.

Maybe you should join your local church committee?
