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…

Thirsty

Well, it’s been a while friends! How are you doing with your lent fasts? I don’t think I have spoken yet about mine, I think I thought I’d have been a master blogger by now because of it. Yet instead, it has opened up something about my heart – and it’s unfolded a question What…

Year 11

Today I woke up remebering a today from the past. Waking up and realising my whole life had just turned upside down and nothing would ever be the same. And you said “take courage” and I did. Yet I didn’t realise that courage doesn’t always take the form of a lion; boldness not always identified…

You can’t hold me down

I’m on a train somewhere between Ebbsfleet and London on my way to something new, playing with my pen and notepad, aware I should write about how I am feeling right now. I know if I do, it will fire an arrow at the enemy which is desperately seeking to hold me back. People often…

Life Lessons

So the other day, I was at the gym working on one of my 2019 goals – to complete the C25K app! This is definitely a goal I am having to bring a load of motivation into. Completing it will be both a struggle and a joy.

Blue

Welcome to Blue Monday I’ve seen a lot today about the dreaded Blue Monday. Contrary to common belief, Blue Monday is not a particularly scientific formulation. It is, I believe, a very clever marketing technique that has created a life of its own and perhaps even become a self fulfilling prophecy. Don’t get me wring,…
