Minute Devotions: He Hears Your Unspoken Prayer

Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely. – Psalm 139:4 (NRSV) There are times when we can’t find the words to express how we feel. Life can be tough and trying to put into words your heartache can be hard. Often, the hurt or anger is so deep that praying becomes difficult; not only do we not know what to pray, we sometimes can’t pray, as our pain is so deep. When you can’t find the words, know that your heavenly Father can hear your unspoken cries and can hear the whisper of … Continue reading Minute Devotions: He Hears Your Unspoken Prayer

The little girl who left me broken-hearted

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved children. If I’m out and about and see a fat little baby, all I want to do is pick them up and snuggle. One of my favourite things to do is sit at my brother’s house and snuggle with my little baby nephew, Frankie, while watching Sophie and Aidan, his brother and sister, play. I love kids and pray that one day God would bless me with kids of my own, both biological and adopted.

Out of the ruble – Cambodia

I love the lotus flower. It is one of my favourite flowers and I have it tattooed on my wrist as a reminder of a particular season I was in. Most people look at it and think that I tattooed it on because it represents tranquility. Bless. Tranquility has nothing to do it. I’ll share that story at another time but if you don’t know, lotus flowers grow in dirty murky waters. You wouldn’t know it from the surface because the water is covered in pretty leaves and the lotus captures your attention because its pretty and usually a vibrant … Continue reading Out of the ruble – Cambodia

A nameless face in a sea of thousands – Cambodia, The first 24 Hrs

I made it. I touched down in Cambodia. Today marked our first official day in Cambodia, despite us arriving late last night. As it was late and everyone was tired, the trip didn’t really start until today. And my word, what a start. It’s been a long and at times draining day. And as I sit in my room and reflect on the day, I realise that I’m experiencing a range of emotions; anger, heartbreak, confusion. The things we have seen today have left me pained and asking questions. Questions that I will likely not get answers to anytime soon. … Continue reading A nameless face in a sea of thousands – Cambodia, The first 24 Hrs

Standing in faith for tomorrow

Tomorrow is Mothers Day, a time to stop and honour all the mothers out there for being awesome and for doing the toughest job on earth; raising kids! I love Mother’s Day as it gives me a chance to spoil my mamma, something she doesn’t let me do often. We’re taking her out to lunch and I’ve gotten her some goodies to pamper her with. But while I know tomorrow will be a joyful day for us, it wont be for many people, for different reasons. Personally, it’s going to be a day of mixed emotions. This Mother’s Day is … Continue reading Standing in faith for tomorrow
