Confidence (a poem)

Confidence
Doesn’t always mean being bold

But that quiet voice 

Saying ‘you are enough’

‘What you are doing is enough’
To be comfortable in knowing who you are and whose you are.
When people tell you otherwise..

You are enough 

You are more than people’s opinions of you

Than criticism 

Hurt 

Or shame..
No these things need no longer define you..
But rather spur you on one small step at a time..

And if things don’t go as you’d hoped ..

Well tomorrow is a new day

to be filled with wonder, happiness and joy.
Tears too for there will be days when they will flow
And more new yet untrod steps to be taken 

As we walk this amazing path that is life..

Ten Years Hanging Out With Jesus

Happy Friday..everyone! Ten years ago today I made one of the best decisions I’ve ever made..to follow Jesus.

I’m so thankful for the journey of continually growing and knowing God more. I’ve come so far but I know the best is yet to come. Here’s to more adventures…

A sense of an ending..

Yesterday I went on my last bike ride to Fremington Quay. Its a short ride from where I live, along the cycle trail. This next month is going to be full of many little endings.. Those moments where I’m like “Wow this is the last time I get to do this”.

It feels strange knowing I’ve travelled this route for the last time.

Watching the sunset.

And to keep making memories.. ๐Ÿ™‚ After all there are more pages of the journey to write..

I’m so thankful for the journey so far and looking forward to what the future holds.

Wanderings

Scatterings of the heart
Being woven into something new
Jumping into the unknown
Writing new pages of the story

Knowing that I am His

No matter what..

Learning to walk humbly
along the path that is unwinding
straight in front of me

And to not look back
but keep moving forwards…

Its not how fast you travel that is important
It’s important that you keep moving.

– Carole Farish – April 2013

Water, mountains, adventure

I’m loving being back in the Lake District for a couple of days. It so beautiful. Extremely thankful right now. I’m loving the adventure of life.

 

Croyde Bay

It was fun spending the morning exploring and wandering along Croyde beach with my friend Heather, in Devon. With stunning views out to sea and a bright blue sky.
