Life Lessons (two)

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..

Spring Days

Spring days filled with wonder

at the beauty of creation
Capturing moments

Standing in awe
Ever thankful

for each moment
Taking it in like a breath of fresh air

So good for the soul
In the stillness

calm waters

hope arises
As we wait.

Fjelltoppen

Some moments are like mountains. When we’ve got to climb through some hard times.
Often travel difficult roads

That may be long journeys 

or short ones.
But when we reach the top

What was once before us

becomes clearer.
Towards a new understanding 

A realisation that 

We are so much stronger than we think we are.
And that by looking back 

How He has carried us through 

the toughest of times 

And never left 

and He never will.

Autumn Musings

I took this image on my journey home from work this afternoon. I used an app called Over to add text to the image.image

Saltaire wanderings

Took this picture earlier today after catching up with a wonderful friend. It’s a wonderful place to visit. Saltaire is also a UNESCO world heritage site. It is a model village built by Sir Titus Salt who was a mill owner back in the Victorian era. The image is of the United Reformed Church which is in the village.
