This turtle looks like how I’ve felt the last couple of days. Stuck, flailing around wildly, and getting nowhere for all my efforts. 🐢 I think a lot of us feel like that at the moment. The exhaustion of going around the house in circles tidying up after kids, the monotony of the same surroundingsContinue reading “When you’re on your back, don’t flip your lid; ask someone to flip you back over.”
Find yourself feeling discouraged more often lately? Maybe you’re a teacher receiving complaints, a leader experiencing criticism, a volunteer feeling overlooked, or a parent feeling taken-for-granted.
In times like this, it can really help to store up the golden moments, thank yous and affirming words in a place where they can’t be washed away by rainy weather.
Maybe, just maybe, today you need to hear that you are ‘good enough’, and that – all things considered – you are quite simply ‘perfect’ for the family and friends God has gifted you with. ❤️
The impact of your life is a bit like walking along the seashore across the sand, picking up shells as you go. Those shells you lift along the way represent the lives you have touched. Before you know it, you’ve walked the length of the beach. A little love each day can go a very long way.
TUNNEL VISION OR BRIDGE THINKING? 🤔
There’s a difference between going TO something and going THROUGH something. If we’re not careful, this whole thing could become a tunnel, and we’ll miss all. we could learn on the way.
2020, we choose let go all that we need to let go of; and 2021, we choose to ‘wear’ you with all the dignity, energy and courage we can muster!!
Never measure the fruit of your labours or the impact of your life only by what you see. Because what you see is only the tip of the iceberg.
If you had one day left to live, what would you say, what would you do, and what would you give?

When something’s gotta give, give it over to the one who got the balance perfectly right.
Jesus walked the impossible tightrope of deity and humanity on this earth. He was always productive, in rest and in work. He poured out endlessly but stored up spiritually. He knew to say no to the wrong things so he could say yes to the right things. He was perfectly self aware without being remotely self focused. He balanced the scales of grace and truth perfectly. He is perfectly consistent in all his judgments and totally fair in all His assessments. His unmistakable authority complements His irrefutable humility. He is always loving, in kindness and in rebuke. He is majestic and meek simultaneously.
Jesus understood who he was and what he came to do. He gave his life so others could find it. And because he lived the perfect life and died the perfect death, he provided a win-win solution to our inability to get things right.
