Around our ‘family table’ this June.

Greetings all, I thought I had better add some Homeschool updates given this was one of the original ideas I had for my blog. I would love for the Fab 5’s grandparents to see what they are doing each week so here we go with my first education based post! It is June and that…

Sitting at His feet.

Just a quick post today, I need to get on here more often I know! I shared the following in my Instagram this morning and thought it would be a great idea to also share this kind of information on here… I was going to share a scripture quote this morning but after reading through…

Taste & See ~ a message for single mums.

Dear Judith, my dearest sister in Christ I had to write to say ‘thank you’ for this morning. I have had you on my heart for weeks now and after your post on Facebook yesterday Jesus moved my heart from thought -> to action.   {I know we have only spoken a few times and…

The Beautiful You – your identity in Christ.

As promised here is my 25 minute talk delivered to my beautiful sisters during our ladies fellowship.  It was the first time I had been asked to write and share in front of so many ladies, so it was both slightly scary but totally awesome! I have added the parts I felt would be too hard…

His LOVE broke through!

It has been so long since I have had the time to sit and just meditate on life and where things are at, which is ‘Gabi’ for I haven’t blogged in ages! But I have been overwhelmed of late with the work God is doing in my heart and I had to steal away and…

Our ‘Greatest Gift’

It is that time of the year again, Christmas is coming. The girls and I pulled the Christmas decorations out today and as we searched deciding what choices we would make in decorating we chatted. I asked them what they loved most about Christmas 2013, they both said our ‘little Christmas book (‘The Greatest Gift’, by Ann Voskamp). That answer…

God is good, even when bad things happen.

Have you ever been in the midst of a really long, really rough, really uncertain, really scary and really difficult season and found yourself wondering, ‘Why me, LORD?’ I have to be honest, in the last couple of years this scenario has played out several times! I just wanted to spend a few moments sharing…

It Is Well With My Soul

It Is Well With My Soul ~ H.G. Spafford When peace like a river attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll; Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, it is well with my soul. There is nothing extra ordinary about my day today. I slept in, had breakfast with the Fab5,…

The Beauty of our old Apple Tree

Under our apple tree Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. Psalms 36:5 Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Psalms 89:8…

Preach the Gospel to yourself daily

Preach the GOSPEL to yourself daily……. I have heard each of my much respected pastors (of the Podcast variety) talk of this over the last five years. The first time I heard it, I must have giggled inside because it sounded foreign. But 5 years on and it has become life to my weary soul…

But God…

Image-1-3 It is late afternoon here. My family are at the beach grabbing what remains of summer in our part of the world. I sit here, alone at the manse window with my old friend the keyboard at my finger tips. My bible open before me, at Ephesians 2. My mind is at rest and…

My Bookshelf

I am going to start listing books that have solidified my faith over the past 20 years. The LORD Jesus often refers to His children/followers as sheep, I love this analogy. As a country that grew up on an outback Australian farm around sheep, I get this picture! When it comes to reading then, I…
