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

Odysseus knew the dangers. Forewarned and forearmed he asked to be bound to the ship’s mast to stop himself being lured to his death by the Siren’s seductive song. Emily Wilson writes, 'The Sirens—and their fateful songs—offered a glimpse behind the veil, a chance to h...

You don’t need reminding;
We live in a busy, too busy, overcrowded, and noisy world.

Yet deep calls to deep. 


There is a cost to pulling away from the current of activity. 


It might be paid by way of financial outlay or loss. Disappointing other’s expectations. A health is...

I strode out last week, cutting it fine for a dental appointment. 'If you're on time, you're late', ever heard that one? It's true. Planning to be on time means there's no buffer for the unexpected such as baby throw ups, missing keys, lost shoes, misplaced bag, coffee...

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

to laugh and lament. 

What are my desires?

They are sirens of satisfaction 

clouds, vapours, half loves. 

But you,

you require...

"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...

"We can't direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails"

Thomas S. Monson
 

Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before...."

This song dates itself a bit with the reference to Myspace (seems like an eon ago!) so if you can think of a rhyming replacement, let me know :D

Love your neighbour as you do yourself

But I been wishin’ I was someone else

Mirror mirror, on the wall,

You’re the biggest...

All The answers are awaiting

In the presence of a King

Every need, every desire

Every single thing.

When we didn’t know He listened

Never knew He cared

Could not feel, His loving presence

Yet He was always there

I feel the sun on my wings

Now I know

Why the caged bird sings

I hav...
