A Million Little Miracles

‘You’ve got a mass on your brain!’ Those were the words the doctor spoke to me after several weeks of feeling progressively worse and worse. Sickness and extreme headaches had led to several bedridden days; unable to move for fear of causing pain or sickness! Being admitted into hospital brought on a feeling of relief; finally a potential end to this nightmare. Little did I realise that the diagnosis was the beginning of the next step.

Once For All Time

I happened upon a piece of writing by a stylist in response to a question about key pieces of clothing that would outlast trends while still not making them outdated fashion, as opposed to trends that generally last one or two seasons.

Parenting Perseverance!

The amount of times I have wanted the result of something without any hard work is countless.

Stay Curious

I was recently driving and saw a sign that said ‘Stay Curious’. I felt that God was speaking through this natural sign on the side of a building to my heart in a supernatural way. Rousing my curiosity regarding who He is and what He is capable of. Stretching the limits of my own imagination and creating a hunger deep within. Curiosity is having a strong desire to learn or know something. Curious people often actively seek out challenges and new experiences to broaden their horizons. They may not need to know but they want to, and this drives their actions. As I thought about this, I considered the bigness of God, the ways he has led me over the years and the times He has surprised me.

An Election Year… So What?

Politics. Love it or hate it, our TVs and newspapers are full of it. Over the last few years, terms like ‘Brexit’, ‘referendum’, ‘election’, ‘Trump’ have become as common as ‘tea’ or ‘coffee’. Whether it has you enthralled or sick to the back teeth, with a General Election looming, things aren’t about to quieten down. The last few years have, in many ways, been divisive, and unity has been affected not only on a national level but also in homes, friendships and, yes, churches. How should we, as people of God, be living in these times? I believe we need to be doing three things:
