This was the year that…

Every year, at this time, I love to get away to reflect on the year that has gone and then set my face to the year ahead. I have absolutely loved Twenty Eighteen and bid it a fond farewell, full of memories, growth and new experiences. This was the year I… Finished ‘Home’ Tasks (painting…

Mess

The last thing she wanted to be doing was lying on the sofa, foot elevated, watching back to back films. There are times when rest is chosen and times where it is forced upon you. Truth is she’s in a bad mood. In pain, doing a mindless task that appears to be never ending. The…

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…

This is Autumn

#thatswhatHesaid At the beginning of the year, as I took time out to reflect on 2017 and prepare for 2018, I felt God simply say that 2018 was to be marked by seasons. When I came to the end of one, to seek Him for the next. I wrote about it in Setting Your Goals and I…

Watchmen

This morning, as I was driving to the office, I got stuck being slow-moving vehicles, not once – but twice! TWICE!! There was no way around them, countryside roads with twist and turns don’t allow much room for manoeuvre. I was resolved, I had to go slow. In the slowness, I became inspired. Last week…

The Final Season

“There are days, there are days when your life clouds over, and the world gets so dark; that all at once you can’t tell night from day” This is quite possibly my favourite song from a musical; it is most definitely one of my favourite lines. Sung in Act 2 of Miss Saigon it depicts…

It’s Only Words

Sat outside in this gorgeous sunshine escaping to the streets of Paris in my latest read, I was reminded of my passion for words. I love words, I surround myself with them. I use them (maybe sometimes too much) but words are essential to my life. I often talk about the words we say, whether…

What Wakes Me Up

I can’t believe its almost a month since I last posted. My fingers aren’t so quick on the letters, my mind is struggling to remember how to piece thought together. I know if I sit and plan, it will never get written. I have a notebook full of drafts to prove this. A stream of…

This is Spring

If you were to describe yourself as a season – which would you choose? I think, hands down, I am a spring personality: a little chaotic, always seeking the new, unpredictable in my energy levels and require support and nurture for growth. If you have read my blog for a while, you will know that I use the…

The End

“this season is coming to an end” One aspect of discernment I am seeking to grow in is knowing when a season is coming to an end. One aspect of faith I am seeking to grow in is obediently letting that season end. I am coming up to the end of a year, Good Friday…
