Crowned (Part 2)

Every year, our church holds an extravagant dinner; a banquet and ball. Very Luxe. It is completely free to attend. I have never attended, in the six years we have been at our church, simply because I do not own a fancy dress and the thought of organising a babysitter and driving to the city,…

Crowned (Part 1)

My daughters and I were part of a photo shoot for our women’s conference at  church on the weekend. The theme of the conference, in October, is “Crowned” and the photo shoot brief was, “Come dressed royally!” For people with absolutely no social life this was tricky and we were not the only ones who…

Christ In Me.

    Today I thought I’d post a poem about how beautiful it is to have Christ in us, and to be in Christ. I hope you are encouraged. Christ In Me Christ in me, And me in Christ. My heart is hopeful, Jesus you are right here with me. I am confident with you,…

Photos from the Holidays

Growing up we had “slide” nights. My parents did a six month tour of Europe, in a Combi Van, when I was two, and my sister was five. Forever-after we’d snuggle in on the lounge to re-live the memories. Of course my only real memories are the memories themselves, but do I have real, and…
