Intimacy – Saying Sorry!


I think that one of the hardest things to do in building true intimacy (and let’s face it, all of it can be pretty hard) is to say “I am sorry“. Today, in my gratitude journal, I actually stated that I am grateful for the gift of saying I am sorry.   I really don’t have an… Continue reading Intimacy – Saying Sorry!

MY WORD FOR THE YEAR – 2016


Every year, I choose a word that I want to focus on during that year.  I pray about it, and then go with where I feel God is leading me. For 2014, my word was “abundance“. And for good reason – I had a poor spirit. Abundance comes in so many forms – but mainly it… Continue reading MY WORD FOR THE YEAR – 2016

The 52 Week Challenge –Week 3


There are days when I just don’t feel like it – the battling, the trying, the anxiousness, the fear…. Days when the staying in bed is easier than the getting up, when the staying at home is easier than the going to work, the giving up is easier than the carrying on. But, what God teaches us in the commitment, in the perseverance, in the “hanging in there” is that we trust Him no matter how we feel. On the day that I don’t feel like it, I can do it because God has called me to honour Him in all that I do. On the days when it is easier to stay in bed, I go to work because this is God’s plan for my life. On the days when I feel like quitting, I hang in there, because God has called me to finish this race.

Day 20:  Prayer for You


Today is day 20 of Jennifer Smith’s 30 day devotional, Wife After God. When I was first married I had this fear of things not working out between hubby and I.  All I wanted to do was make our first wedding anniversary to say that at least we made a year.  And I used to… Continue reading Day 20:  Prayer for You

Day 19:  Who You are Called to Be


Today is day 19 of Jennifer Smith’s 30 day devotional, Wife After God. Who has God called you to be?  It is interesting to me – and perhaps I am wrong – but very seldom does it seem that God calls us to a specific vocation.  Of course, there are those who definitely have that… Continue reading Day 19:  Who You are Called to Be

Day 13:  Coated in Pride


Today is day 13 of Jennifer Smith’s 30 day devotional, Wife After God. I don’t consider myself to be someone who is proud.  I can quite easily say I am sorry and mean it.  Even if in the heat of the moment, I may something I regret, I can easily apologise and make amends.  I… Continue reading Day 13:  Coated in Pride
