Have you smiled today

Psalm 28:7 reads:

“The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him.”

Today has been one of those days when I needed to remind myself to smile. I had been trying to post something all day to encourage you beautiful ladies  but the internet had been playing up ( often the way in life as we know it huh?) Continue reading Have you smiled today

Reflections on Easter

This past week I have been reflecting on Easter, here are some thoughts…

Friday reminds us of death and of heartache. Saturday comes and with this day there is mourning, there is a desperate state of being, there comes the questions, the ‘what if’s’ the ‘if only’s’…. BUT!! Sunday is coming, and when Sunday comes, JOY is restored. HOPE is here and Jesus is ALIVE!!

Of Sheep and Shepherds

I was teaching the kids at church about Jesus the shepherd recently.  I remembered my pet lambs from a childhood growing up on a sheep farm and explained how my lambs always knew my voice, even years later, and would come running when I called them by name.

Reflecting on how much care the shepherd took to protect and care for his sheep in Biblical times, I marvel at the ingenuity of Jesus’ parable of His care for us in John 10. He calls us by name: our Father. He leads us: our teacher and Continue reading Of Sheep and Shepherds
