The Ordinary Day

So many of our days are “ordinary”, insignificant for lack of notable achievements or milestones. In fact for many of us we often spend days caught between the promise and fulfilment. We are in the hallway. And well it feels at best uneventful. It’s not exhilarating. But it is in these times that our attitude,… Continue reading The Ordinary Day


In the darkness – {Easter}

In the middle of the night, in the dark, my four year old knows how to find me after a bad dream or if he's not feeling well. The dark of the night doesn't stop him seeking me out and finding me. When we're in the dark, going through a hard time, we can be… Continue reading In the darkness – {Easter}


The Way – {Good Friday}

Within the city of Jerusalem amongst its many roads is a narrow street called Via Dolorosa. According to tradition it is the path that Jesus took, bearing the cross to Calvary. Today the street looks as ordinary as the ones surrounding it. People pass through quickly. It is part of the hustle and busyness of… Continue reading The Way – {Good Friday}


When I survey… {Good Friday}

When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His… Continue reading When I survey… {Good Friday}

Even now, as I read these books again as an adult, I can’t help but be captivated by the world of Narnia that greeted… Continue reading The Door – {Good Friday}

Nothing quite like a hot shepherd's pie with cheese topping to say I am loved. Love is a shepherd's pie After… Continue reading Love is….a shepherd’s pie – {Lent}

There is a green hill far away

There is a green hill far away, Without a city wall, Where the dear Lord was crucified, Who died to save us all. Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved, And died our sins to bear; We trust in His redeeming blood, And life eternal share. We may not know, we cannot tell, What pains He… Continue reading There is a green hill far away


The Journey – {Lent}

I love road trips with my husband. A chance to get away from Town and its busyness. A chance to, with no other interruptions, talk, laugh, remember and dream together. It's always a great time of connection for us. No distractions of work or chores, or phones or social engagements. Just the two of us.… Continue reading The Journey – {Lent}
