She’s a Swan!

See the picture?   Wearing 2022 glasses backwards, beaming with childlike delight. The numbers sitting backwards on her face; she sees the new year with joy.   If you look the 2s looked like swans.   Noticing this, I heard a favourite children's song 'Ugly Duckling' and I heard the Lord whisper… ‘She’s a swan…’…

Treasures in Darkness… Christmas Shopping with Jesus

We had a few hours on a Saturday for child free Christmas shopping before seeing a movie. With our list in hand, little did we know that Jesus had a Christmas list of His own… I was in the ‘ladies’ when I found the first on His list. I knew to pray for someone outside…

Worship is a warship-it’s time to praise

2020 was a year of pause, shift, change growth as the storms raged on. Worship was significant and essential. I knew without a doubt that united worship was critical. Technology did not stop us from uniting and worshipping ‘in spirit and in truth’ just as Jesus called for when speaking with the woman at the…

testimonies shift realities… time to create

Could it be, as we share our testimonies of Jesus, our stories of a Good God, that creative power releases to heal and affect change all around us for the better?

Time stands still no more

Resets, restarts, reshaping, renewing, recharging, restoring - so many re’s being re-leased (see Ready or Not Here He Comes).

His net works…

Earlier this year, I bought a scarf for a leader/friend. She is an Australian Apostle/Prophet and I honour her and receive her as such.
