Haven’t written much on here lately. Here are some late evening scribbles.. It’s currently untitled..
Sometimes struggles shout louder than they shouldForgetting how far you’ve come
Times of feeling stuck.
But oh daughter of mine you’ve yet
to see the places you’ll go.
For in the struggle you are stronger
than you realise
Don’t loose heart
Remember whose you are!
Where you are now is not the end of the
There are more pages to be woven
into this beautiful tapestry
His love for you runs deep.
Even if at times it feels distant
He’s got your back
Right alongside you.
Every tear that falls down your face
When you feel moments of despair
When things seem so uncertain
Know that it’s who you are that
Keep that bright spark of encouragement
Don’t loose sight of that
Lift your head up and smile
For you are beloved of the King
and He delights in you.

Last week I got to spend some much needed time away back here. It was wonderful to spend time catching up with good friends.
Some days can be hard. When you’re not sure what to think and feeling anxious about things. With social media we can make our lives look like everything is okay even when it’s not.
There are times when I need to be honest cause sometimes even then I am struggling. Times of feeling lost, unsure, scared, but hopeful all at once. That despite all that I know that He is on the throne, right beside me, cheering me on and knows the rest of the story.
What may feel like one long slog to me is just a small bend in the road. Times of needing to get a different perspective on things. To lean in, be patent when sometimes all I want to do is escape from feeling scared. But actually it’s better to embrace it, to look fear in the face and say ‘I can do this’. To speak up for myself even if it means facing conflict. I usually just want to run and hide in those moments. But I am worth it! I am worth standing up for and my voice matters!
And I’m excited for what is next in the story… Here’s to continuing the adventure that is life..
Golden moments whilst riding home..
Quiet moments often linger.
In the stillness
of running water
Giant vistas overhead
Silhouettes of sun beams
As the path comes into view
New adventures to be had
There are perks to being a reluctant night owl at times. It’s usually these times when I’m most inspired to write.
Rushing too and fro
Sweet silence of the night
Longing to return
to a place my heart
Still in wonder
of the glorious creation
He has made
Of mountain tops
Clouds and embers
Still in wonder
So after my USA adventures.. Another new adventure has begun. I got off a 7 1/2 flight.. Got a train back to Yorkshire. Packed and headed up to Lancashire.
I am loving being nearer my sister and brother-in-law.. I’m also enjoying lodging with wonderful friends Amy and Matt.
And views like this.
Had great fun celebrating USA Independence Day with some new friends.. A whole evening early on July 3rd.. The fireworks display was at Long’s Park in Lancaster Pennsylvania.
It was a little strange to be celebrating the independence of a former British Colony. But still fun.
Please don’t loose your wonderOf the small
But beautiful moments
And remember that you are His
And He is yours
Who conquered the grave
And set the stars in the sky
And brought heaven down to earth
Scattered wildflowers in meadows
To wander through
And to enjoy
The butterflies dancing amongst
in the late evening light
