My one thing

The other day I wrote about intentionally living in the moment. Every day. I can, and do, live here and now because I know where I'm from, where my strength comes from, and where I'm going. I'm really enjoying the new Hillsong worship album: Open Heaven River Wild. I actually love pretty much everything any of… Continue reading My one thing

Where I write

I always imagine other bloggers/writers/people working from home sitting in very glamorous home offices with all their modern conveniences around them. True? Although not glamorous, or even an office, I thought I'd share my space anyway. It's just a corner of a room - a corner of the upstairs lounge I share with a TV, xbox,… Continue reading Where I write

I stumbled on this quote during my Pinterest wanderings this week and it kind of freaked me out as it, almost word-for-word, says exactly what I'm working on in a draft post at the moment! I guess somebody out there is thinking the same way that I am. So here's a sneak into a post… Continue reading Sharing

Scripted Sunday: Can’t Stand The Rain

I love Lady Antebellum - driving, baking, house-working - their music just seems to work for me when I don't know what else I feel like listening to. The lyrics of the song "Can't Stand the Rain" really jumped out at me this weekend when I had a particular friend on my mind. She's a very… Continue reading Scripted Sunday: Can’t Stand The Rain

Scripted Sunday: The Voice Within

I have to admit, I'm a bit of a Christina Aguilera fan. She has some terrifically strong lyrics in her songs - not to mention she's one heck of a singer! I remember hearing this song 'The Voice Within' well before I was a mum, and always thinking 'this will be a great song for… Continue reading Scripted Sunday: The Voice Within

Scripted Sunday: This I Believe

This morning in church it was so wonderful to be led in worship by the kids worship band. Their young voices (none of them yet at high school) were equally talented and genuine.

Scripted Sunday: Youer than you

This is one of my all-time favourite quotes. I've done this today for my daughter who is having challenges at school with a bully. It's hurting her self-esteem in a big way so we're really trying to affirm at home that each one of our children is special, wonderful and amazing in their own way. And as the… Continue reading Scripted Sunday: Youer than you

I have my own circus to deal with*

Note to self: I don't need to get bogged down in other people's crap drama. It's okay to walk away. I do need to stop taking on board things that I can't, and don't need to control. I have my own circus to nurture and protect as priority. My circus is full of people who care for me, and… Continue reading I have my own circus to deal with*

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

Ok, so I'm not really a book reviewer. Actually I'm not a book reviewer at all. A reader to be sure, I get through 3-4 novels a month - it would be more, I just don't have as much time to read as I would like! That said, last night I finished The Fault in Our… Continue reading THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

TO BE FOUND

Again she felt the tears spill, running down her cheeks matching the raindrop rivulets on the windows. She shook herself angrily, willing the tears to stop. There was no reason to be so sad, there was so much to be grateful for. That was easy to think, but everything going on in her life just seemed… Continue reading TO BE FOUND
