Happiness


Noah has been obsessed with guitars for as long as we can remember, and we'd decided ages ago to get him one for his third birthday. So we had a family outing yesterday, and introduced him to the Secret World of the Independent Guitar Shop...

Back at the flat, he and Susannah busked worship songs and nursery rhymes for us. And fiddled with the tuning-pegs, just like he's seen "Daisy's Daddy" do...Well, he is at the bottom of a learning-curve!

But it is a learning-curve for which it is already clear he (unlike me) has 'natural ability' - one of the elements that combine to make him him. That 'becoming process' is fascinating to watch; and humbling to invest in. That 'becoming process' - becoming who we are created to be - is the heart of our story.

  1. This is so weird. My son Noah also happens to be obsessed with guitars. We feel we need to get him one pretty soon because he keeps playing the broom.

    Take care!

    I wouldn't have said Gareth was at the bottom of a learning curve - he's done albums and everything.
