Some scribblings from Saturday evening.
Also looks like
Haziness at night
and walks up mountains.

Sometimes encouragement doesn’t need to shout to be heard
It can begin with a small whisper
You are: brave
Knowing that it’s okay to wear your heart on your sleeve..
To live life with open hands
To give and receive
To know that when life is hard
You are not alone
There are many cheering you on
That have your back..
When you often think of others before yourself
Know that there will be days when you will need other people to be that for you.
When really we don’t have everything together all the time.
Sometimes life is tough..
And it’s okay to take one day at a time..
There are brighter days ahead..
And others need your smile, laughter and hope in their lives..as much as you do too.

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…
Last week I stumbled upon a blog by a young woman named Stari.. Which can be viewed here http://iwontbewanting.blogspot.co.uk/
Her courage and honesty in the face of adversity really inspired me and helped me to put a lot of things into perspective.
Sadly Stari passed away earlier this week. I love how even in her trials she found the strength to inspire and encourage others.
I came across this quote a couple of days ago from Jamie Tworkowski who is the founder of To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) who raise awareness of suicide and self harm issues amongst young people and to help those in need. You can check out their website here. I love the passion this organisation has to see lives changed and people free from things that are holding them captive.
We all need people to spur us along our journey.
Remember.. You are important, valued and loved.
– Your story is important –
Of love and dreams
and distant adventures
Moments of laughter
and sprinkles of fairy dust
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
I wrote this poem a few years ago now back in March 09.
To see you running towards me
Like there is no other
Across the sand beaches
The sand dusting your feet
Running with all your might
Your feet hitting the sea with
You gasp at the shock of the cold water
engulfing your feet
You see other kids laughing
Having so much fun
As the sun shines over the water
Making it glisten like silver scales
In the distance tiny specks on the sand
As you come closer to the shore
They become clearer
Children making enormous sand castles

This is a picture of the pages of the book I am currently reading.
In hope is where dreams are found
When they are coming out of the Furness
So new that they are scorching hot.
Where we learn not fear the unknown
But to embrace it like a flower beginning to bloom.
When its better to jump, to take the risk
Otherwise its only ourselves holding us back.
In the adventures of walking new paths and places.
All the smells and sounds bring it to life.
Knowing that where ever you go you’ll be ok.
And that its ok to be apprehensive.
Its part of the journey and you’ll get there
in the end.
Today is not the end..your just adding new
pages to the story of your life.
