Garden Lessons – Part Two

This week, England experienced a heat wave and I have loved seeing our happy sunflowers delighting in the continuous sunshine! Having grown them from mere seeds in an egg carton, it’s so encouraging to see them shining out their joyful presence in our garden. With some of the dead flower heads removed, I have been drying them out to save the seeds for the next … Continue reading Garden Lessons – Part Two

Slow Growth Is Still Growth

Have you ever started to recognise a behavioural pattern within yourself? And in certain circumstances, you keep reacting the same way?

The long awaited day … Continue reading A Time To Pause & Celebrate – Part 2

Even special ice cream cone cakes were lovingly baked by my daughter in anticipation. Lots of dirty dishes were created too, but it was worthwhile smelling the sweet aroma of baking throughout the house! There’s something wonderfully exciting when a celebration is nationwide. … Continue reading A Time To Pause & Celebrate – Part 1

We’ve had great conversations and there is an openness and freedom being sisters in Christ together. We were recently at her youngest daughter’s birthday party (before lockdown!) and to my surprise, Charlene’s eldest, Charlotte had made me … Continue reading Charlotte The Encourager
