Choosing joy…


At times in life its easy to choose joy…everyone you love is healthy…the house isn’t a total mess…there may even be flowers on the table… :)
At other times it much harder to choose joy…sickness strikes your family and you are all dropping one by one…sleep seems like a nostalgic part of the past…your cranky and so is everyone else in the house…in these moments its the time to choose joy…

…to feel God’s loving care for our family through a caring friend who drops over a meal…

…to be thankful for this pumpkin eating little guy…

…to see the ‘cuteness’ for the need for this little guy to have everything just so before he goes to sleep… 

…thankful for another year of life…

:)
 
Planning to keep embracing joy each day of life…

Just perfect…


On Saturday my lovely friend Selina got married!!! It was an absolutely perfect wedding and so special to celebrate with Selina in this beautiful part of her journey in life.

I had the honour of praying a blessing over the newlyweds future! God hears and answers our prayers and I was so excited to pray the blessing of all of Heaven’s goodness for their life and future together.

Mr and Mrs…

He will…

A verse from the Bible I have drawn lots of encouragement from lately….

Isaiah 40:11

He will take care of His flock like a shepherd;

He will gather the lambs together and carry them in his arms;

He will gently lead their mothers.

What a priviledge and a gift that the God of the universe leads and encourages those He has entrusted precious children to. In fact, God loves to lead His people when they seek Him and invite Him into the everyday moments of their lives. God’s grace is available to all through Jesus’ death and resurrection. He gently and lovingly leads us to Himself…the true source of life.
