Beginnings in February

I’m not one for doing New Years resolutions but this year I have decided to set myself a few goals.

Chiefly to finish my poetry book and get it published is top of the list.

Also to devote more time to reading, learning and all things crafty.

The other day I signed up for a freelance photography diploma which is super exciting. As it’s something I thought about doing in my teens but never did. But I’m so glad I can do it now!

Its okay to chase your dreams one small step at a time.

Signing off for now.

Early mornings and branches

Early mornings and branches.

Breathing in ordinary moments.

Crisp air fills my lungs and frost crackles underfoot.

Looking up at silhouettes in the sky.

Shadowed by the night sky.

Soon to be flooded in daylight

In between seasons

Taken on my walk to work this morning. I’ve added some scribblings from the other day.

 

Life is a series of in betweens

Paths that seem like dead ends

and some that are not.

Filled with joy beauty, hard times and wonder.

 

And sometimes it’s a fight

to see the light in the darkness

But most of all I cling to the hope that He is mightier than any troubles that I face.

Even in sorrowful times

I am glad that He holds it all

 

And brings comfort amidst the tears.

And when I look back

I’m in awe of all He’s done

And grateful that He’s there

all the time.

Thursday scribbles

Hope Over Fear

Reminding myself that amidst uncertainty

I can still choose hope over not knowing what’s next

Hope over fear

Hope over shame

Hope over negativity

Hope amidst challenges

That it’s light that dispels the darkness

Light is life giving

It’s where the magic happens

and new ideas

become more than just dreams

Where the sparks of imagination fly

and old patterns become new paths

Interwoven into who we are

I wandered round a beautiful example of gothic architecture this morning.. Votiv Kirche in Vienna, Austria. Photo taken with my ipod camera.. I’ll definitely be back there with my dslr next time..

Sometimes pictures don’t need to be perfect.. Rather beautiful with their imperfections.. Kind of like us humans really.
