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.

[moments, adventure, memories]

Moments

Wanderings

Through paths both near and far

towards adventures yet it be explored.

Stood still

if only for a little while.

Encapsulating [time] as though it were
little rain droplets..
Caught for that moment
as though they would last forever

But fade away they must.

As nothing really lasts forever: as time moves forward…
it does not wait for people to catch up.

But can be found..
even of only through memory…
like whispers through the wind.

As though to go
back to where they once were.

Thankfulness

I stumbled upon this quote today and it pretty much made my day. It sums up my attitude to life about the importance of remembering all that we have and how life is so precious. Sunset taken by me back in May in North Devon, UK.

Endings and New Beginnings

Stepping forward
Along silent edges
A moment ending into something new

Endings teach me about the blessing
of new beginnings

Not taking things for granted
but being grateful for where I am now

Small steps along the journey
I smile thinking of the little things
Encountered along the way

Like looking at the night sky as though
I’ve never seen it before.

There are always new beginnings
happening all around us.

Being thankful for who you meet along the way

And to think those moments could spark
Something new in our hearts.

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.

Capturing…a sunset..

[Hope and Adventure]

Of love and dreams
and distant adventures

Hope

Moments of laughter
and sprinkles of fairy dust

Happiness

to be treasured.
Going to sleep with a smile on your face..

It’s the little things that make the big moments.

“Life is either a daring adventure; or nothing at all” – Helen Keller

Happy Moments

Happy moments
with a smile on my face

Little droplets of bottled
up laughter

The best medicine in all the world.

Sometimes all you need is
a glimpse..of hope

a big hug, a high five..
Times to remember with friends
and family.

Keep making memories
That’s what lifetimes are made of.
