#40DaysCreative Painting & Extravagant Love ❤️

Today was going to be baking but instead I had time to paint! Little Lion napped in the afternoon so I got a bit of time..just under an hour..it didn’t feel long! I’m not an artist and so needed help! I watched a simple Acrylic Paint video on YouTube for inspiration. Mine looks nothing like […]

‘The Middle’ Monologue (..grab a pillow)

God has spoken to me through many storms in life. While I was in a lot of pain, four months after marriage, my new husband having to dress me and do everything for me. God showed me His Kindness as I have shared in blogposts before. He gave me this nugget of Gold. I am […]

Through the struggle..

Though we struggle and fall and hurt and fail and try again and mess it up and cry and try again and see and risk and hurt and push through and cry for help and try again… We don’t go through it alone. There is one right next to us, capturing it all, never allowing […]

Hard Heart looking for Love ❤️

I’ve not posted for a while. I have a lot of ‘saved drafts’ as I have written a lot, just not stuff worth posting! I can’t be fake, I’m not great at small talky chitchat. That’s why I find the starts & ends of church a bit cringe! Oooh but grab a cuppa & sit […]

Let it rain..

Tonight I was at the memorial service of a lad who should have been celebrating his 21st Birthday. Yet sadly instead he was remembered by family and friends in a beautiful way as we all let go of 21 balloons in his honour. I feel quite surrounded by grief at the minute. It suddenly hit […]

Crouching in the dark

My Lion is now 9months (I know! Already!?), he has been a bit poorly over the last few weeks. Saturday night on one of his coughing episodes I went into his room to soothe him back to sleep. I needed him to not know I was there so I was glad it was dark so […]

You make me Brave

Today’s writing is from my sister, I admire her bravery and heart to help anyone who has/is experienced something similar, Bravery and Hope shine through.. I have thought about writing this post for about a year, and it finally felt like the right time. This time last year, after nine months of trying for our […]

Elijah Rest

‘Depression’ seems to be a word thrown around these days and has such bad connotations. It makes me think of someone trapped in their room unable to come out without poppin pills. Recently however I feel I have found a secret underground world of people who are struggling with depression. People I would never have […]
