Bloom where you are planted

Hello summer! June is finally here, the sun is out and everything is in bloom! There’s such an optimism to sunny days and light evenings and right now its just wonderful, a sweet spot in life for sure.

We can’t leave our house but we can change the world

WE CAN’T LEAVE OUR HOUSE BUT WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. 1 April 2020   Fill the skies with praises and prayers     You don’t need to leave your house to change the world. Yes these are very strange times right now and there’s so much speculation. Fear, anxiety, depression, loneliness are all real things expanding across the world and seeping into peoples hearts. Even as a Christian myself I have struggled with these over the last weeks watching our world enfold into a shadow form of its self. No doubt the world will be forever changed around us,...
