Are you open to the bible?

I’ve tried reading through the bible from cover to cover numerous times – needless to say, I don’t always get through it, but I do often sense God is speaking through what I did read. I began to think about how often I open the Bible. As I thought about opening the bible my mindContinue reading “Are you open to the bible?”

Fully restored

I wrote yesterday about how I was restoring an old bench – I thought I’d do a little update and show you the end result. Bench restored. The bench has had the debris removed. The old rotten slat has been replaced. We cleaned it up. We repainted it. We placed it in the garden toContinue reading “Fully restored”

An old bench and the Restoration of the soul

My neighbour recently threw out an old white, broken, mouldy bench. It wasn’t pretty to look at, but you could see it had been lovely in it’s time.

Getting a little disoriented

I recently visited one of the most beautiful little villages in the UK. St Abbs is a tiny Scottish fishing village nestled close to the Scotland-England border and it is simply gorgeous. I was snapping photos left, right and centre (and I guess driving my very patient children a little crazy as the danced onContinue reading “Getting a little disoriented”

How to feel alive

Today I feel very alive. You know… that feeling somewhere between deep contentment and cheesy bliss. I wonder what makes you feel alive. That feeling comes to us all on occasion, and it arrives in a variety of ways. For some, it is found in the embrace of a loved one. For others it isContinue reading “How to feel alive”

Saying YES opens the doors to joy in your life

Say YES. Today what will you say YES to? There’s so much going on in life that sometimes we unintentionally say yes to the wrong things. We say yes to the things that hold us back, and the things that keep us bound up in pain, grief, and despair. Say YES to living happy. SayContinue reading “Saying YES opens the doors to joy in your life”
