Emigrating? (Rise of the Guardians)

Mrs has told me that we have decided to move to the other end of the country.

She has always wanted to retire to that area, and therefore thinks 'why not now?'

She feels trapped at ou current church, where the problems that caused us to leave before still prevail.  She feels like Jack Frost in the early part of the the film 'Rise of the Guardians' - always trying to interact but seemingly invisible.

So, a fresh start in a new area, in a new diocese where she can be a person in her own right without living in the hsadow of others' pre-conceived ideas of her would do her a lot of good.

This summer is an opportunity between our various children's major exams etc. 

I need a change of job to satisfy HMRC that I am a genuine contractor.

So I have asked agents to find me a job there.  If they succeed, we will take it as divine guidance.  If they fail, then it is my wife's fantasy and nothuing more.

Now; Rise of the Guardians is one of thsoe films which is on one level totally pagan, but on another level full of allegories of Christ.

He is the invisible one who always helps us but is ignored by us.
He is the one who defends us against the darkness and against our worst fears.
He is the one no whom we must believe.
He is the one who sees the darkness coming and prepares us now.
