May you enjoy moments of refreshment as you read and reflect

May 12th 2024 was an epoch day in my life - my spiritual birthday! And not just any birthday. I wanted to shout from the rooftops that I'd experienced the thrill of knowing Jesus for 50 years. It's been a Grand Adventure, soaked in the goodness of God, revelling in His presence and basking in His love. Not that...

I've been disappointed that during the last few years, prolonged fatigue has stopped me from my usual jaunty joyful rambles. I miss walking under God's open sky, basking in green surrounds. Recently, I was sitting in my backyard when I was startled to behold a splash of beauty shimmering on my horizon. As I looked towards this inquisitive intruder,...

Recently, as I reflected on a story in St Marks gospel, two words from the passage spoke deep into my heart and it was like I was being wrapped by my husband's strong arms in a soothing embrace. What were the two words? Ah! I'm glad you asked! Let me tell you. Jesus had taken his three closest...

The Real Enemy

On the 2nd of March 2018, the three of us had the joy of moving into our present home. The process of getting here was a long winding road, filled with potholes and detours. Not one I'd recommend. Selling our then home had been a very wearying task. Buying this one was even more challenging. Usually, an agent in charge...

I was spooning the contents of a soup packet into a Pyrex dish when inexplicably, the packet slipped from my grasp and its contents began to ooze their way into my cutlery drawer! Oh no! Just what I needed! Not! We were off the next day on a little getaway, so I had lots to do. And now …...

I stare at the blank page on my screen. Two more days before the New Year dawns. I am tired. I blink a few times and stifle a yawn. I sift through the piles of my ideas and thoughts and imagination, like looking for gold in a mountain of sand, but sadly, no gleaming nuggets of inspiration are found....

For a number of years, I visited my doctor's surgery every fortnight to receive a B12 injection. Its effects were heartening. Energy. Enough. Enough to live on. Sufficient for the day. Only those who have suffered with a severe lack of energy will understand how much our wellbeing depends on having sufficient energy! I can cope with unbearable pain...

Blog ideas pop into my head all too often, so I have tons of them stowed away in various documents in my computer. Recently, I discovered an interesting entry made seven years ago - on the 27th of June 2016! Apparently, I'd finished reading four books in 24 hours! And yes, it is the complete unvarnished truth!

Some years ago, I accidentally dropped my mp3 player one too many times and it broke into half a dozen pieces! Oh no! I tried to put it back together. The good news? I was able to piece it back together. Hooray! The bad news? Its 'On Off' switch was broken. Oh dear! What to do? Thankfully, my...

It had been a tough week. But also a good one. One day brought me bad news. But the next day brought me good news. Like an owl contemplating life on a cold dark night, I furrowed my brow in deep reflection and finally came to a conclusion. Life's surely a journey that takes us through varying countryside.
