Look at me!

Being the summer holidays we've been having a lot fun and amongst other summer activities we have explored a lot of different playgrounds. No matter the playground though, it is only a matter of time before my 3 year old is calling out to me to "Mummy, look at me! Look at me!" His enjoyment at the playground definitely… Continue reading Look at me!

Love came down – {Advent}

At Christmas we celebrate that God came to earth as a baby. And while the world was sleeping, so few - some Shepherds and Wisemen realised that the birth of a baby in Bethlehem had all of Heaven rejoicing. For the plan, the rescue of mankind had begun. God used the Heavens - a star and the… Continue reading Love came down – {Advent}

Having loved the Madeline books, I… Continue reading The Hand of God

From her joy at… Continue reading The Favourite One

Sometimes it’s the little things

Love is more often demonstrated in the small daily acts than in grand extravagance. Listening to my 6 year old's chatter about crafts, I bought him some pipe cleaners from the $2 shop. His joy as he ran up the stairs to begin the many creations that would then be made was clearly visible. Love is shown when I warm the kids'… Continue reading Sometimes it’s the little things

Some say love….

Bette Midler's song "The Rose" came on the radio today. A song I well know. Back in the day, It was a popular choice as a wedding song when I was in our School Choir that often sang at weddings. It starts off somewhat sadly and poignant. Actually if I may be blunt, somewhat miserably… Continue reading Some say love….
