Special education her passion; Heaven her destination, God is Good!

With a new school term upon us, my daughter and I made a dash to our local shopping centre to ensure shoes would fit properly for the coming days. As we ducked through the department store, a jumper (sweater) caught my eye. In a flash, I felt to buy it. On checking size and colour,…

Towards Fresh Wine

Some need renovation; others deconstruction. Some are renovating; while  many are consumed with the build. Yet others, the quiet ones with no meeting place of sorts, know it is time to meet at Water’s edge for it is there that ancient pathways head towards Fresh Wine.    

The God who sees (part 2)

© Sam Manns God gave me kisses on Thursday. I had been flat, I needed encouragement. He is the God who sees... The next day, I saw a great friend. You know the type: encouraging, positive, loves your quirkiness and knows you well enough to brush the dirt away gently to reveal the gold while…

Treasures in Darkness… Christmas Shopping with Jesus

We had a few hours on a Saturday to do child free Christmas shopping before going to a movie. With our list in hand, we did not know that Jesus had His own Christmas shopping list for us to do too…! I was in the ‘ladies’ when I found the first on His list. God…

Plans for 2021 – it’s time to grow and go

Provision in the midst of the storm… God is Good!

Our family has a new game. We place our name in a hat, and we pull one name out each week for the following weekend. That one person chooses a meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack) and an activity, during which all phones are away, and each person’s attention is complete. We started playing this…

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…

Stop for the one regardless of lockdown

Late last year, I bumped into a friend I had not seen for years. We briefly chatted, and then she surprised me by suggesting we catch up. She said she loved spending time with me years ago, and would love to catch up for lunch. I was delighted, but a little surprised. Trust me… I…

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…
