It's funny how some days time can just seem to vanish. One minute you're well ahead of schedule and then suddenly the time is gone - as if into a vortex or you've entered a parallel universe where you're late! Time - it's such a precious commodity. A limited to 24 hours a day commodity! Life… Continue reading Possibilities in Spare Moments

"I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until the day of His return." (2 Timothy 1:12) Heavenly Father, I release to you the burdens that I have been carrying, burdens that You never intended for me to carry.… Continue reading A Prayer
Sacrifice. Praise. Two words that seem mutually exclusive. Two words that don't belong together. Praise is like the woohoo of your day, an overflow of happy. It's exuberant, joyful. Sacrifice - well that is something that comes at a cost. It's pain, grief, hurt. Surely sacrifice and praise don't belong together? Yet we find in Hebrews just that. Praise… Continue reading Sacrifice. Praise.
Behind the Stone Wall
The roads were busy. Road works seemingly everywhere. Everything just felt busy. People driving to work, to appointments, to coffee, to wherever. My to do list felt as long as the traffic queued in front of me. The city was alive, on the go, and yes busy. Yet in a central suburb is an oasis,… Continue reading Behind the Stone Wall
God, please enlighten my mind with truth; Inflame my heart with love; Inspire my will with courage; Enrich my life with service; Pardon what I have been; Sanctify what I am; And order what I shall be. AMEN.

I decided that on reaching home I’d take the opportunity to pause and watch it. Unfortunately by the time I arrived home the sunset had faded into dusk. A few days… Continue reading Chasing Sunsets
He restores my soul
Fighting a migraine for several days and I was left exhausted. Physically, mentally, emotionally. I commented to my husband that it's at these times that my mind is not kind to me. Thoughts of failure, guilt, discouragement seem to assail me and I have little energy to fight them away. I am vulnerable, tears come readily. Feeling… Continue reading He restores my soul

Theatres, recording studios, and even home media rooms have all had a lot of time and money perfecting the acoustics. From special wall treatments to ceiling panels, and probably a host of other "things" of which I have no idea! All techniques and tools to enhance the art of listening. The aim of bringing clarity, purity to the sound being made. I'm no… Continue reading Acoustics
A Treasure Hunt
"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings." (Proverbs 25:2) You have to love treasure hunts. Starting off with merely a clue and tracking down the treasure hidden away. Not that I've done many treasure hunts myself - the last probably being when… Continue reading A Treasure Hunt
