He sees the one

A beautiful person house sat for us while we were away for the Easter break. She is dangerous to darkness because she will listen and respond. She shared the most lovely testimony after we came home, a testimony that continues to show that God is the God that sees and cares for the one. Easter…

Post lockdown shopping with Jesus… Kindness matters… #grateful

The Friday afternoon, after the coffee with friends where we found a treasure in a girl with a heart tattoo, I dropped my daughter to an appointment and went browsing in a local clothing store. Wandering in I said 'hi', chose a few pieces to try on, and popped into the change room. The owner…

Can you see the one before you?

This morning I was a little flat. We are still in stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne, Australia, and although there was some lifting of restrictions last night, the changes do not really change anything for us in our little bubble. Restless, I pulled on my big girl pants and drove to the naturopath to pick…

What you carry you spread – the honey will flow because God is Good!

I returned from a daily walk last week and noted how beautiful my blossom trees looked. I stopped to take some photos: These trees make my heart sing. It is the simple things that bring me great delight. Yes... that is a cabbage in my front garden - beauty, form and function. I have a…

Sometimes the bay where I walk is unusually still; barely a ripple shifts the surface tension of the waters. At other times, the wildness of the weather comes straight from an Emily Brontë novel and the wind whips, forming waves that surge upon the sand. Regardless of weather, these days God is often speaking as…

take the next step…

So often in our lives, futures imagined, dreams envisioned, must be laid down. In these moments we have a choice: do we allow God to direct our steps, even though we are at sea with disappointment and hurt? Or do we attempt to control it all, forcing our lives in the direction we think we should…

Stepping out in lockdown – God is Good!

Recently, as lockdown in Melbourne, Australia lifted somewhat, I headed out to my favourite organic store. I have known the current owners for 10 years or more. A few years ago, one owner told me she had received a diagnosis of kidney cancer, and was all clear. She had then regained her vitality with the…
