Somebody pointed out to me this week that it is very hard to be 'both and'. We always head to the one extreme or the other. Which is encouraging because that seems to be the story of my life.

I was born in Bournemouth and love the sea, I really love the sea. Looking at it, being on it and in it. But I live in Leicester and love the countryside which is almost the furthest point in Britain from the sea.

It's good to be surrounded by lots of people but I'm just happy chatting over a meal with my wife Carol or just being with her.

Running is fantastic but there is part of me that could just lie around all day.

Do you see what I mean?

It really is possible to be both and. Yet there are some things in life where you have to be focused on one single point. I wonder what that is for you? For me that is Jesus Christ. Ultimately everything I am flows out of that glorious centre.
