Would you give up your spot?

In your heart, will you:
❤️put them in their place?
❤️ squeeze in beside them, resenting that they are there?
❤️Or, will you be radical enough, generous enough, lovinge enough to give them your spot, smiling with delight as you watch them enjoy every moment of it?

The worry stone

Poor little Zoë faced her first major rejection today at school. This evening she struggled to fall asleep because she was worried the same thing would happen tomorrow. We talked about it. We prayed about it. But she still felt sad, and my mummy heart was hurting for her. Then came the idea. I grabbedContinue reading “The worry stone”

You shall know your ‘shoulds’ and your ‘coulds’ shall set you free

Find yourself thinking ‘I should’ an awful lot these days?

I should be enjoying home schooling…
I should be half a stone lighter…
I should be keeping in touch more with friends and family…

Store it up for a rainy day: The power of encouragement

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.

When you’re asking yourself if you’re making a difference, remember that the tip of the iceberg is all you see

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.

No regrets: it’s time to do what you’ve been dreaming about.

If you had one day left to live, what would you say, what would you do, and what would you give?

Clinging on for dear life

‘For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven…’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1) I looked out my kitchen window yesterday and noticed an apple or two still on my tree. It looked like they were just clinging on for dear life, just hanging on by a single twig. Anyone else feel aContinue reading “Clinging on for dear life”
