True Magic Of Christmas

Heart smiles
Homeward bound
The smell of warm apple and cinnamon

The breathtaking wonder that this season.
Brings of hope, fun and happiness
Of being together
Remembering the reason why

That Christ came born of Mary
Forsaking himself for us
Which is the greatest gift of all
For He came to set us free.

The true magic of Christmas.

Looking back..

Its a good day as any to reminisce. I’ve come such a long way. I remember back in the days when I was at school and, I had no self confidence. I was very shy and kept to myself and spent lunch times reading. How things have changed.. :-D. Thinking of how far I’ve come really does make me smile.

Listening to old RPM songs reminds me of how incredible my God is and how he really does come through no matter what. Also about how important it is to be faithful in everything you do. How over the years I’ve had the privilege to be involved in three album recordings…and I know I don’t have the best voice but I just kept showing up and what an hour it was to serve alongside such incredible singers and musicians.

That reminds me of the time when I played RPM’s (now Iam Future) first EP in my registration class at school and my classmates actually liked it. I so thought they’d ask me to turn it off.

I have so much to be thankful for.. I’ve got the most amazing friends and family who are so good at cheering me on and being the best encouragers.

I’ve also got so much better at writing.. I was looking back at some of the poems I wrote in my mid teens and its so good to see how more confident I’ve become at getting things down on paper.

I’ve been on many incredible adventures…to Northern Ireland, The Netherlands, France and Norway…

Its incredible to think that 8 years ago today I made one of the most life changing decisions ever….to follow Jesus..

The journey so far has been full of ups and downs but I wouldn’t change it even if I could because in the hard times I discover more about my character and how persevering really helps to make me stronger. In the times when we most want to give up it’s in these times that I have found courage to keep going.

I’ve grown so much in confidence…I can do public speaking even though I still don’t find it fun..Its still a challenge and I really have to get outside of my comfort zone.

I would have never have thought that eight years later I’d be studying in Devon…….and the journey continues…

It’ amazing how life turns out. 🙂
