I watched my friend eat pecan nuts the other day. She bit them open, easily shedding the hard shell to get to the yummy stuff inside. Stuck at work the next day, I found some in my bag. Without me knowing, she’d shared her loot with me. I was delighted. Hungry and delighted. I followedContinue reading “How not to eat a nut… some thoughts on Law & Grace”

It’s a New Dawn, it’s a New Day!
Can 20 minutes change your life?
A few weeks back I would have laughed and said no ways! Now, I know that it can. Just to be clear – I’m not talking about car smashes or connecting with God for the first time. I’m talking about the humdrum of normal life. You know – the parts that never make it intoContinue reading “Can 20 minutes change your life?”
Pop the waterbed! Do it!
This post is really about passion. In fact, it’s not even my post, but it was so profound I got goosebumps. Serious goosebumps. So if you have every wondered what God wants you to do with you life, this post is for you. Head on over here and check it out. Let me knowContinue reading “Pop the waterbed! Do it!”
Have you ever been on a boat long enough to get your sea-legs, only to feel thoroughly sick when you get back on land? This is probably the best way I can describe how I’m feeling at the moment – though it has nothing to do with boats, land or throwing up. Shhh! Let me explain.Continue reading “Landsick…”
Creature of the Night
I’ve always been an owl not a fowl, but with my kids on holiday – my nocturnal tendencies are getting out of hand. My days are filled with wipe this, feed that, mop this, carry that, tidy this, cook that, find this, pick up that, pick up that again, all to the tune of non-stopContinue reading “Creature of the Night”
Wet, muddy – but alive
The last week has been my ‘work deadline’ week in which I produce a monthly mini-magazine for our church. It involves some writing, a good bit of editing, some photography, some arm-twisting (to get others to write for me), a whole lot of design and layout and seriously little sleep. Did I mention that I don’t getContinue reading “Wet, muddy – but alive”
Your winter is over
Today’s post is a little unusual, so bear with me. If you get to a point that you feel it’s not for you, you are most welcome to go make some tea and carry on with your life, or move on to the next blog. I won’t be offended in the slightest. Promise. In the December holidays,Continue reading “Your winter is over”
Watch this baby dance!
These are my baby’s feet from Sunday, painted and printed at children’s church. I call her my baby, but in truth she is 4-going-on-16, designed purely to keep me mentally agile. Wow can that little girl argue! Somewhere out there, is a lawyers cap with her name on. We have so much fun together. And yes, myContinue reading “Watch this baby dance!”
On being grown up and not getting swallowed…
It’s time for me to face facts. I’m desperately keen to dive in and lose myself in the world of ‘Finding Amy’, (my second novel for those who may not be following my compelling *snigger* saga.) The brutal truth is… I have two other projects that I need to finish first. Its a simple dinner beforeContinue reading “On being grown up and not getting swallowed…”
