2016: Year of Abundance…

I haven’t blogged for a bit and am blogging now because jet lag is winning, for me and my two year old who is playing with trains at midnight while I type! Good parenting! I am jetlagged because we just got back from America and I haven’t blogged for over a month because I guess […]

One hard day..

I was back in hospital today. This time with my 2yr old poorly lion. I didn’t handle it as well as I’ve handled everything else!  When my husband, Loz, was sick, he’s had Dengue Fever, caught it in Burma via a stupid mosquito, I was strong. I was tight with God, didn’t lose my head, […]

Choose to play..

Watching super nanny type show tonight ‘3day nanny’ and enjoyed seeing a lady help a family who were struggling. Obviously also trying to gleam some tips for my Lion who will be two in two weeks (whaaat!?) and I, like most honest parents, am guessing my way through!  Something she said in the show hit […]

Dear Daddy ? 

This morning I was up at 3am with my little Lion. When I came back to bed I heard my name called, I’d kept feeling through the day like I heard my name but nobody there. So I wondered, like with Samuel in the night with Eli in 1samuel (bible) , if perhaps it was […]

Fear and Puddles

My mother-in-law (Anji) is one of the most inspiring, hard working, kind women that I have ever met. She has raised and loved seven children, then went to work in a care home and went from cleaner to manager and just is an absolute trooper! She chose to retire a couple years back, after years […]

If today’s not such a ‘Happy’ Easter..

Today is not called ‘Happy Easter’ it is called ‘Easter’, the ‘Happy’ bit is just a greeting..wishing people to be happy today.  I have seen a lovely friend write to please not be wished Happy Easter as 9months ago she lost her precious baby, he so sadly died after bravely battling cancer. He is now […]

Beautiful reminder..

So encouraged to remember this from 2yrs ago.  I thought there was nothing in this pot as it had been kicked,messed with, even used to send the fireworks out of and left alone..then one morning I noticed life! Beautiful things growing out of what looked to be nothing. Reminds me of my God of Grace […]

Betrayal..where are you running? 

I said in a previous blogpost that as I slowly read through the Easter story (Matt26) and have days of waiting to carry on reading it awakens me to the wait Jesus endured. He knew what was coming, had to wait, feeling sick for it. Trying to tell His friends who just didn’t understand at all!  […]

A week of Creatives 🎨#40DaysCreative

Creative Thursday  Baked Banana cake with melted chocolate topping & Red Velvet cake. GrowGroup social, loving getting to know this group of fun.  I am reading Matthew 26.26-29 and reflecting on the Last supper. How mad it must have sounded to offer the food & wine as Jesus’ blood & body. Yet what a knowing […]

Greatly Loved #40DaysCreative

I love the greeting Daniel receives as I’m reading Daniel 10. What a beautiful honour and when I read it today it made me first think.. I wish that was me! I am thankful for the promise that Jesus does love us. It is absolute Truth that it would be said over us too.. So […]
