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”

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…

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.

Age of Ultron

There are two main ways in which I am inspired; other than through being around inspiring people. Both paths work hand in hand, I can do one, or other, depending on the mood. Both work in my favour, even when I am not asking them to. One is a literal path, I am inspired when…

Hopes & Fears

This evening, I shall be starting my present wrapping! I love this part of Christmas, remembering what I bought and disguising it with brown paper and ribbon. Earlier today I published a post for my work youth devotional blog on the subject of advent and waiting with hope. Which leads me to my thoughts today…

Audacious

He says my names several times before He says it with force. Not to berate. Rather to pull my attention from mind numbing swiping to something more energising and significant. He says it for me to make a choice, which place will I attend to? Either way He is with me, but His desire is…

The one where I saw Hamilton

To mark my 36th year, I got to see the show I’d been obsessing about since returning from NYC in 2015! Six rows back, on the left hand side of the beautiful Victoria Palace, the story of Hamilton unfolded before me… “just you wait, just you wait”
