a grading

from fear to elation and pride at being able to move through and conquer.

A prayer for this heart in 2010

May she not be broken in spirit because of sorrow (prov15:13), but enjoy the continual feast of a merry heart (prov 15:15) . Help her to be anxious for nothing, but giving thanks in all things so she can know the peace that passes understanding. May she come to a place where she can say, " I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content" (philip 4:11). May she rise up each day and enter in to all that He has with thanksgiving and praise. May she walk moment to moment accepting and enjoying her days as she lives surrendered to her Saviour

from where I am

I thought I loved January.
But this year I'm not feeling it so much. Should I hope? Will I fail?
Is there any point even writing those lists and goals for the year ahead? Will I be disapointed at the end?
May be this year I'll let it all just unravel before me and walk in it. Living in what the present moment gives. Go gently, treading lightly, rolling with the tides.
Maybe this year i'll begin already surrendered.
Having nothing to give except my mountain of failures I will be filled.
Maybe this year?

funny photos

We are going through a bit of a photo booth craze at the moment-started by our 8yo shining star. She has now figured out that she can make little movies, so we have her and 6yo brother being rock stars, Miss Jasmine the channel 7 reporter, and a assortment of uh, comedies.
We so love photo booth!

I'm not doing what I should be doing.
I should be getting through three homeschool reports for the HEU which are due a few days ago.
Instead I'm loading the washing machine, giving leftover cheese to the chickens, staring out the window admiring the bright pink flowers dotted over the Frangipani tree across the road.
And wandering around the house taking photos of this and that.
Husband has taken the children four-wheel-driving for the day. I MUST do something before he gets back. I will.
Just after I make another cup of tea...Ugh...

a mama date

christmas :: presents for me

I bought my own Xmas pressies this year. Trying to be helpful, you know.
I haven't taken them off. I think I like them very much.

The birdy has left the bars behind, she could of left anytime but didn't realise there was a way out, maybe this year she'll see a little clearer, and fly free.
