Let the dream take hold…

"The only thing worse than starting something and failing... is not starting something." -- Seth Godin. I dream of being a full time writer. I dream of spending my days in quaint coffee shops, in boutique hotels and by the seaside, just me and my pen. Writing. Right now the quiet and tranquil of that dream [...]

Abundance of God…

I used to believe that receiving God’s abundance meant being prosperous on earth, social status and having material possessions. I for many years was the type of person who would say to God, when or if I have lots then I will be able to do so much for Your Kingdom. Little did I realise [...]

Do you own your calling?

Do you own your calling? Your calling is yours to own! It doesn't belong to anyone else. God planted the desires in your heart that make up the pieces of your calling, your dreams, your life goals. I believe that unless we choose to own our callings and take control of them we will not [...]

Living in the moment…

How gracious are you? Are you grateful for all the wonderful things in your life? Or are you constantly searching for more? When is enough enough? How do we know when we are fulfilled? So many questions, so few answers... What does it look like to live a life full of grace, completely grateful for [...]

Spirit of Excellence..

What is a spirit of excellence? How do we define it? Is my definition of a 'spirit of excellence' going to be the same as yours? We are all wired differently. We do, see and feel things differently. We are not created to be the same or to think the same. This is a good [...]

The way a child loves her mother…

Finding joy in the small things! The above is a picture of my beautifully painted nails! Well to my four year old Miss E they are beautiful! My first response when she asked to paint my nails was 'oh really do you have to, can't you brush my hair or something else less messy'. Of [...]

Operating in God’s love and with God’s love…

When we choose to operate our lives in God's love and with God's love we open our lives up to the potential of being a blessing to those around us. When we are able to overcome our insecurities and fears and allow the Holy Spirit to prompt us we are able to see God's love [...]

Love requires work…

Love doesn't come free, it isn't cheap and easy. True love requires hard work and sacrifice. True love doesn't 'love' expecting something in return. Love is gracious, kind and caring. It does not boast of its own achievements. It is not prideful or arrogant. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; [...]

A Fathers Love

This month being the month of love, I am focusing on how we can love others more and how the Fathers love impacts our everyday lives. February is the month my father was born and every year we love to get together as a family and celebrate him. The only difference is that he is [...]

Love in the unexpected…

It was my birthday on Friday, I had a lovely day receiving gifts and being loved. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. I got to spend it with both friends and family. A great day had by all! Then we were on our way home from dinner, when we were involved in a near miss car [...]
