Joseph: Sharing Fatherhood with The Almighty

This Advent I have been obsessed with a new man. His name is Joseph, I have known about him for years-yet this year I keep thinking about him all the time! So last night, Christmas Eve at 1am I blurted down all I’d been pondering. This is a monologue style, so poets please don’t expect […]

The most significant day…

Most days Facebook reminds me of something from years ago. Sometimes it’s a cute video or photo and I click on it to take a closer look, to remember and share it. Sometimes it’s a hideous reminder of bad outfit choices, or relationship choices, or just stuff that makes me CRINGE! Often, more often that […]

He is Faithful

I don’t want to share this blogpost. I started writing it this morning when I felt more positive. When I was ‘high’ from a great evening at church (not how people normally get high, I know!). Then I paused it. Took my son and nephew to monday bible study/creche, all good. Then I lost my […]

Pearls & Dreaming again..

Last night I stood in a room and it was actually what I would dream of seeing. I stood in beautiful worship as around the room, looking pretty, was different stations of Painting, Creative Writing (authors, lyric writers, poets, bloggers, journaling), Clay, Play&Create (Lego/duplo), Collage and Restore (a section to rest and have Jesus restore […]

Are we good?

“Is your heart right before God?”  This is the question I heard in the night-before waking in intense pain. I ran to the bathroom as the pain was so great I thought I was dying! Not just because I’m dramatic, I genuinely thought I’d heard this voice because something had gone very wrong within me […]

You are the best..

Little thought this morning. I am not very well so my Lion is looking after me. He’s worked hard on making me a tower. His speciality! When he brings it to me he walks steadily, holding it so carefully..with the proudest face on..tongue out. He declares “I made it. Tis for you mummy” It reminds […]

Lead me beside still waters, Restore my soul..

This morning I was at a bible study, it is so good to be in a season in life where my Monday morning starts with someone else looking after my child while I am challenged and blessed with studying God’s word & chatting about applying it to real life, the highs and lows, with other women. It is so […]

Prostitution, Grace and Theatre: Les Mis!

In America, I had the amazing opportunity to watch Les Miserables on Broadway! Whaaaaat! I know! If you know the story you’ll get this post! Though even if you don’t I’ll help it make sense-there are some *spoilers* so you are warned! I just wanted to blog out a couple things it made me think. […]

Feeling close to death..

Waiting in the airport lobby. We suddenly hear huge loud rain. Though as most places here have tin roofs it didn’t worry me much as rain sounds louder everywhere.  ‘It’ll probably be fine, doesn’t look like too much rain’ I told Lawrence. Just then, more rain fell, even harder and wind swept fast and crazy […]

Lost & Found 

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the night I feel to turn off the tv, get off the sofa, get over myself, give my moping-illness-sadness-self-indulgence to my Jesus. Instead to turn on a podcast, eat the word of God, physically clean up my house & internally clean up my act..  I find my bible […]
