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 […]

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 […]

New word..Obedience

A few months ago my car did that annoying thing where the battery ran out, maybe because I didn’t shut the boot properly which left the light on for hours.. Anyway, a wonderful friend came and got it started for me. Then I had to drive around and around while the battery charged. As I […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

“It’s not prostitution”..the story

I read of a terrible crime today. I read of a ‘sex-worker’ who has done a terrible thing and will be in prison for a very long time. If found guilty she deserves to be in prison for a very long time. The pain for me is that I know this woman, I have been […]
