“I’VE GROWN…”

This morning I rolled over to the little voice that wakes me up most mornings, there stood next to my bed was his gorgeous face with a beaming smile. “Mummy, it has happened, I really have grown” He can’t wait for the day that I will tilt my head up to see him. I told […]

Sat, trying not to cry…

I met a lady this week whose daughters had been starved. In Manchester. About 30mins from my home. So when they came to her, after being in different foster care homes, when they finally had a mummy- they would always need to be able to see food. They can’t have cupboards empty or hear someone […]

When the glitter fades..

Sat in a cafe outside a hospital, waiting for the man that I love to undergo a procedure and hoping the results will be fine. I am sure he will be ok, less faith more denial that ‘another’ thing will begin to be a struggle now! We are in a good place after months of […]

Giant-Slaying Time

There is something strangely warming about being awake at 2am feeding baby when there’s rain hitting the window. I love the sound and feel of the rain pattering all over the glass and hearing the wind blow the trees (tree, we have one on the road outside!). I’m not usually up at this time but […]

Get uncomfortable..

Last week I went to the funeral of the friend I blogged about a couple weeks ago. The funeral was unlike one I’ve ever been to. There was a wide range of people at it. Some were staff, governors of prison, church-folk she’d met along the way. Most were ex-offenders, mates from inside, from gangs […]

Faith is growing…

I feel like at the start of this year has been a real ‘new start’. I’ve never been into ‘new years’ and didn’t start the year making any resolutions or grand plans.  I did, however, ask for God to bless me. I asked for this year to be the year of Abundant Blessing. I wrote […]

FEAR..

Fear is often seen as this glaringly obvious emotion. Haloween, horror films, dark forrests.. Yet I’ve found fear to be a sneaky quiet dark weasel that can creep in. As he does, he pushes out faith & peace.     Three years ago I fell down a flight of stairs & slipped three disks in my […]

GOOD Friday – Thankfully the middle

I cannot imagine the emotions that went on that day. When people who had loved him now turned and hated him, to the point of death. Where people who had sung his praises now shouted abuse and all kinds of lies spilled out. Where the ones he had loved,healed, walked with, befriended were nowhere to […]

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 […]
