I struggle with slow…

Anyone else? Or is it just me? Last year for my birthday my Mum gave me a tiny little plant in a white pot. Well actually it was 3 tiny little leaves that looked like she had just stuck them in a pot of dirt. What I didn’t realise until she told me was that […]

I took my time, but I’m back!

Its been awhile…I’ve been quiet around here a little bit intentionally as I’ve been seeking the Lord for His direction for me this year and a little bit unintentionally.

What to do when your baby grows up

I didn’t see it coming. It sort of crept up on me…I mean I was present for every moment, so I don’t know why this surprised me.  I was at the washing line hanging out my son’s clothes when I suddenly realized I didn’t buy these for him. When did he get so grown up […]

When Praying Is Hard

One quiet, early morning, I was watching the sun rise over the hills and through the trees. Everything around me was glistening as the rays of light danced upon the morning sky. I had taken this time to pray, though my heart was heavy with a burden for my friend.
