This Song

  We sang a song this morning, one which I can’t remember when we last sang. One which I have memories attached to, I just forgot them, until music-evoked them (*disclaimer*- dad some things are better not read!) This song, I remember being at a Christian Camp with my youth group (when I was a…

Single at a wedding

Sometimes, the best thing to do is not the easiest. I was invited to a wedding, and days before, I can feel that familiar voice creep in, “you are going to be single at a wedding”. Who am I kidding – it was there from the moment the invite arrived, whispering, mocking, encouraging me to…

Grace conquers Guilt

I walked past my hanging basket today, same as every day; but today I noticed a couple of runners had branched out, I’m not sure when they grew, they just did. I like to set goals, but I often find I can’t find the balance between expected deadline, realistic energy stock, too many causing overwhelm,…

The Gallery

Here we go, the ‘thing’ I’ve been wrestling to share. I don’t know what it is yet, what it could be or even if it is to be. There has to be a point where I set it free, otherwise what would be the point. Let me know if you have any thoughts, maybe I’ll…

Weighing Up

Hello friends, Have you ever made a decision and then realised a few weeks later, life has taken over and you have completely forgotten about that goal? Always? Thank goodness I’m in familiar company! I wanted to upload every week in May. I even made that commitment to someone in a hope it would satisfy…

Take That

A little thought Where do you draw your strength from? I was sat in the beautiful grounds of Abbey Physic Garden last bank holiday when this little one popped up next to me. Basking in the sunshine, with a book, a coffee and surrounded by nature, you could question my extrovert tendency! Fear not, I’d…

Just Stand

I believe God created us to walk and talk with him daily and find the actual practice of this hugely effective in calming my whelm. Recently though, when I’ve had these times of ‘hanging out’ Jesus has given me one gracious command. “Just Stand”

The First Bridge

Something about bridges Arriving late to my last Writing, Coffee & Conversation Workshop was partly my fault. I could have got the underground but I was desperate to go back to Flat Cap coffee and it wasn’t that far! Only, as you may have read in my previous post I’d forgotten about tourists and instgram models….

The Middle Zone

Waiting in the unknown in the middle zone not seeing just holding on to what was spoken a token of hope, pressing into your palm imprinting it’s pattern to your skin reminding you again and again that this is the wait and not the end Waiting because it’s all you can do waiting bringing questions…

Write what you can

At the beginning of the year I wrote a post around my word for 2019 which is to Deepen. Reading back through it even today, I can see where I am beginning to see fruit and also where I am needing to intentionally push down even more. What has helped has been to set aside time on…
