For all the Late Bloomers in God's Redemptive Story -
It's NEVER too late for a fresh start

"You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew,
rebuild the foundations from out of your past.
You’ll be known as those who can fix anything,
restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate,
make the community livable again."

Isaiah 58:12

How To Launch Your Kids Well Without Breaking Yourself

"Woah...Wow...Yikes", I wasn't feeling encouraged, only more pitiful. As my Osteopath very gently ran his hands along my neck muscles it felt like a garden rake being dragged across my aching body, no kidding! "You...

And then they are gone.

And then?

I have today to love well,

to play

to plan

to invest

to sow, to nurture

to harvest

to hold and harbour

to feed and comfort

What are my desires?

They are sirens of satisfaction

But you,

"The gift of a kindred friendship is that it can cause you to see yourself

truly, while calling you to a better version of yourself"

We all have these great people around us as examples. Their lives tell us what faith means.

So we, too, should run the race that is befor...

While being near the sea I’m enjoying reading Gift From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. What a gem this book is and what a story her life is within itself.

Being on holiday is of course a beautiful freeing treat but we know we cannot live in this space, it is not rea...
