A personal email from a bishop is quite a good start to the day, even if she is on the other side of the world. I was at university with the Bishop of Waikato [New Zealand] - she is English although she is now down under.
We took many of the same classes at the University of St Andrews, and even ended up with the same degree, but then our lives diverged and we are at quite different stages now. We were friends on Facebook until she decided not to use that platform any longer, and now we connect through emails, usually at Christmas, when we catch up on one another's news.
It was a lovely way to start the day this morning, with a bishop's blessing to get me through the first day back to early starts and working again!
If you are back to work today, I hope it is a good day for you too xx
