Just fitting God In, Is Better Than Leaving Him Out Altogether.

Photo by rawpixel.com from Pexels Sometimes I stress about not keeping up with friends when life is crazy. When all I can manage is a text or a Facebook message, or a random like on Instagram, to make sure they know I haven’t forgotten them. Sometimes they won’t even know, but I sent up an…

The Farm

The kids, my mum and I, this week, spent 3 glorious days on a farm, belonging to my aunt and uncle who are also my Godparents. While we were away I began reading the book of Luke and read a prophesy about John the Baptist. Luke 1:16-17 says, He will bring back many of the…

Dare

Photo by Vladimir Kudinov from Pexels Today I thought I’d share a poem, I wrote called Dare. Sometimes we need to take a risk to step into the power and promises of God. I thought I’d dare you! Dare Like a deep root tree in the forest of your love Lord, establish me. Plant me…

Christmas in July

We are in the middle of winter school holidays here in Australia. Typically, for our family, we have just been on a beach holiday! Sounds crazy but the kids and I had a delightful time swimming and playing in the warm winter sun! I don’t think it got below 23 degrees. This time I took…

Am I a Good Friend?

Photo by Kasuma at Pexels When I typed in “Friend” to Pexels to find a great photo for this post, so many images came up. Friends; playing together, sharing food, exploring together, dressing up together, standing by each other, helping each other, working together, showing each other things, teaching each other, exercising together, having fun…

On Never Having It Easy

Photo by Nubia Navarro (nubikini) from Pexels This is an old post from 2009, written during the days of chronic fatigue recovery for my husband, and three kids in three years and one month, for me. I found it amongst our chronic fatigue recovery blog posts and I felt it was still relevant, still important….
