because spring is here

and I haven’t posted in so long..
Today looked like this..
Some snapshots of a wonderful day off spent with my sister, nephew, Dad, Gran and Auntie.

Road trips to the Lake District

One of my favourite views..

Family walks

Wildflowers

Ewe and her baba.

For me days out like this are so refreshing. I loved capturing some little moments as spring begins.

I never tire of spending time here.

Evening on the farm

Visited my friend Jack’s farm for Lambing Live yesterday evening. It was so much fun.

First scribbles of the year..

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 

Story
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

matters most

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.

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..

Stepping Stones

Quiet moments often linger.
In the stillness

awe struck
Night sky

Stars twinkling 
Sparking thoughts 

of adventure
Stepping stones 

across streams
Waterfalls crashing 

into pools

of running water
Giant vistas overhead

Whispering clouds 

Silhouettes of sun beams
As the path comes into view

New adventures to be had

Late evening musings

There are perks to being a reluctant night owl at times. It’s usually these times when I’m most inspired to write.

Tonight’s musings.

Summer nights
No slumber

Thoughts

Rushing too and fro
Sweet silence of the night

Longing to return

to a place my heart

calls home

Even now

Still in wonder

of the glorious creation

He has made
Of mountain tops

Sunrises

Stormy nights

and thunder
Bright sunsets

Clouds and embers

River reflections
Still in wonder
