God…the party planner?

 
“What if, in truth, our God is the party planner? (Didn’t he say he was preparing a wedding feast for us and building mansions in heaven?)

What if the same God who created a breathtaking garden, planned purpose and the love of family and friendship and the fulfillment of productive work, who delighted in children….

…who touched the sick and rejected, and who gave grace to the prostitutes and tax collectors is the God whose companionship we can enjoy each day?”
Sally Clarkson
(Dancing With My Father, Waterbrook Press, 2010:34)

Some thoughts from a fantastic book I have been loving, Dancing With My Father. God delights in us and even loves planning parties more than me! I’m looking forward to the great Feast with my King one day!

Value

 
 

I love that God places value upon us…He sees as important, precious, His children….valuable enough to die for.

Global culture often doesn’t value that which God does… an unborn child, women, men, children, the elderly, the sick, purity, joy, peace, unity, beauty, wisdom, honor…

In whatever you are doing God sees you…He places value upon you, He has a good plan for your life…which includes a bright future with Him…
You are of great value to Him.

Life…


“You only have one big and beautiful life….how are you going to spend it?” In amongst all the goings on in my life…there has been so many things happening and I wanted to share some of them in this space so I don’t forget! The photo above is my belated birthday cake that Dan and the boys baked!

New Farm Park dates with the family and Jocelyn Provisions bakery treats!

Wiggles concerts – where dreams come true.
 
 

Beach picnics on holiday…
 
 

Ninja fights amongst the drift wood…

A sand eating baby…

My all time favourite holiday cafe…Beechwood Cafe…

…with my all time favourite date…
 
 
 

…same cafe – different date (you can’t get too much of a good thing!)…
