Belonging…

Today I was an astronaut, checking my colleague had correctly applied his helmet before BLAST OFF, then interrupted by two pirates wondering if I could be a ticking crocodile again. I declined as 10 minutes earlier I had been left alone on the pirate ship, in my pirate hat with hookhand and telescope, looking like […]

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 […]

Let him carry you..

I’m going into hospital on Wednesday as I’ve been unwell now for a couple months. I’m super fed-up of it and none of the options for what might be wrong are looking nice. Nobody wants to be unwell..obviously..and I’m a terrible patient, because I’m impatient! This week I started getting a couple more text messages […]

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 […]

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. […]

We are Family…

I am writing this feeling rested and just in a good place. I’m taking note of that as I think I can often write out of sadness, confusion or tiredness so its a treat to write feeling…good! That is mainly thanks to my grandparents, they took my gorgeous 2yr old boy this weekend, our first night […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
