God’s Treasured Girls.

This is a poem I wrote to encourage the young girls in my life! I hope it blesses you too. It was raining but there was a girl on the beach. She was drenched and shivering, far out of reach. Was she digging for something? Grace watched through a window, questions in her mind, Wondering…

Job 20:20

I saw this verse this week as I was seeking quiet and stillness, the word “contentment” came to mind. We need to be still with God, to be calm. We need to remove the chaos, the hectic and the busy if we are to retain anything we truly desire. I encourage you to be still…

When God says, “No.” (Part 1)

A few years ago I began writing a novel. A children’s book. It was called The Light Rangers and it was about a family of children who were the last of the Light Rangers left in the universe. They were the remnant, their parents were lost and it was up to the children to save…

Satisfaction

Twice in one day, last week, God spoke to me about finding our satisfaction in Him. There was a moment when I was imploding. I could feel the pressure building inside me. It was the end of school holidays, I had not prayed or even sat quietly for days. It was singing, by one of…

After a swathe of breakups and trauma and sadness and giving up on love, and friendships in my own life, we connected, me and the…

Mark 12:41-44 says, Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury.  Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a…

Collateral Damage.

This week I read something horrible in the bible. At the End of the book of Judges is the story of A Levite and his Concubine.  Judges Chapters 19, 20 and 21 is an awful, terrible, tragic story. If, like me, you don’t know or remember it, here is the basic plot. The Levite has…

Stretch out your hand

  I am mute. Not one word for a week and a half now. A single sound brings on the severest cough. So I rest and I read; House and Garden and my bible, nothing too long, in case I fall asleep. A while ago I was encouraged to write a blog. Numerous people since…
