The threat of lockdown is now a reality. The 'what ifs?' are 'what nows?', and suddenly we are faced with a endless sea of uncertainty stretched out before us. While I was doing my house work today, I noticed areas that had been overlooked for too long; cobwebs in corners and dust gathered in dark… Continue reading Speaking from Faith or Fear?
Sight is a gift. (Ask anyone who doesn't have theirs and they will tell you so). To be able to see is something that we take for granted every single day. But there is a difference between having sight and seeing. You have no doubt heard the term 20/20 vision a few times already this… Continue reading Set your sights in 2020
The skies are clear but my eyes are clouded. A storm rages in my soul. I feel torn in a million different directions, my heart beats I am staring at the waves rising around me and I want to run for high ground. They say knowledge is power but the more I learn the more… Continue reading When the waves rise
"Oh, I don't run with others." This was my response to friends who had done Couch to 5k and wanted to join me on some of my regular runs. It makes me cringe now, looking back but there was a reason behind it. Running for me is more than just getting fit. It is my headspace, my… Continue reading Running with others
I just read a beautiful instagram post where a new mom honoured her own mother. Her simple statement read; "when Mom arrives and everything's OK again", and the deep vulnerability in this heart offering brought tears to my eyes. Being a mother is such a magnificent, messy miracle. As a mom, I get to hold my babies… Continue reading To moms who need their moms
So I am supposed to be working but my heart is so full and my mind is racing after an amazing morning at church. Today I was invited to speak at our church and it gives me such a buzz, I can't even tell you! As a writer, I know how to write good content,… Continue reading God is faithful in our failures
The Lord spoke to me powerfully through a scripture today. I was listening to a sermon on YouTube whilst working at my laptop, and as I heard this verse read aloud, a wave of emotion swept over me. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27 ESV I… Continue reading Are you listening?
"That's not yours, put it down" If I had a pound for every time I say that to my boys. They grab hold of everything, fighting over toys, books, magazines you name it. They always seem to want what the other one has, and rather than receive the gift, toys or sweets that I have kept… Continue reading Put it down
I am writing this blog from the foot of my son's bed. He has a particularly bad case of chicken pox and is having a very fitful restless nights sleep. I try to sleep myself but am so aware of his every move, moan or murmur that I flit in and out of consciousness so… Continue reading Love isn’t pretty
Yes I know it has been a few weeks months since my last post but my heart has been so full I worried that when putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) I might never be able to stop the out pour. You see, my heart has been broken this year. 2016 did not start the… Continue reading On my knees…
