I’M WORKING ON #NEWMUSIC ! #np #soundcloud #hiphop #composer #freelancer #musician #music teacher #phdlife

Hey everybody!

So I’m working on a song for my PhD project. This song is basically about the conversation I had with Jesus whilst I was on my hospital bed when I had to take time out from my studies.
Here’s a snippet of what I’m up to enjoy!

#New Ways To #Pray #Christian #Jesus

Hello everybody,

A short one today I’m v. busy. Two days ago I was very tired after doing a lot and praying a lot. So when it came to bedtime prayers I was very tired. (Every morning I pray and read the Bible before getting out of bed and every night I pray and read the Bible before I go to sleep).

So I decided that that night I would try something different as I was exhausted physically and emotionally. I invited Jesus to come and sit on the bed with me and listen to Christian music with me. Music that I wrote actually and just meditated on the lyrics, what they mean, what I can do better, how can I use these, the themes, reflecting on my relationship with Jesus, where we have been and asking Jesus questions.

I found it refreshing just to meditate in Jesus’ presence. The stress just washed off me and I don’t remember when I fell asleep! 

Try it. Put on some Christian music, if you write Christian music and it’s recorded put it on! Invite God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit to come and sit with you, meditate on God, ask Jesus questions and bask in the Holy Spirit.

Much love,

Catherine

#supermoon #telescope #hobbies #stars #clouds #cold #photography #Jesus

Hey Guys!,

Apart from music, another one of my hobbies is Astronomy and I’ve had a telescope since I was young. It lives at the top floor of my house, sometimes if I hear on the news that there is something particularly interesting to see in the sky I’ll whip it out. Sometimes, I just like to take my telescope out and just look at the stars or the planets because I find it cathartic. So on the 14/11/16 there was a Super Moon! I was really excited sooo I decided to get my telescope out and take a look hehe!

What is a Supermoon? Well according to timeanddate.com which has some really interesting information about it (see the Bibliography at the bottom):

“A Supermoon happens when a Full Moon or New Moon coincides with the Moon’s closest approach to Earth; also called perigee.” (timeanddate.com 2016)

I couldn’t see anything for ages! So I decided to go downstairs and watch some TV lol. Then I promptly forgot about the Supermoon, till I went to brush my teeth and go to bed, then Jesus reminded me.

By the time the Supermoon arrived I was a little tired, it was cold outside and my commitment was waning. However, Jesus gave me the idea of propping the telescope on the stairs of the top floor of my house. That way I could see the Supermoon and not get cold!

 

I was really panicking whilst propping up the telescope because I realised that as the moon was so close it appeared to pass quicker, meaning I had to swiftly get it in sight before it moved over the house and out of view. I didn’t even have my glasses on (I couldn’t remember where I put them lol) and I was panicking further as I wasn’t sure if I had focussed the image properly to take a picture! It was quite funny actually lol.

Eventually I got to a cosy position on the stairs and I invited Jesus to come and look at the supermoon with me and I really felt the peace of God during that time 🙂

The peace that I felt and the fact that Jesus reminded me that I wanted to see the Supermoon has reinforced what I’ve always thought, which is that it’s really great to involve Jesus in ones hobbies and spend time with Jesus doing ordinary everyday things outside of praying, reading the Bible and going to church. Jesus is interested in every part of our lives and I feel like He enjoys participating in the simple fun things, as well as the big projects in our lives.

I don’t really know how to take photos from a telescope and I didn’t have an adapter to steady the camera but I did the best I could!
