Inclusion

When I talk inclusion I am not referring to diversity. I am talking about time together versus time alone. There are many times, seasons and events, pretty much on a daily basis that I think about inclusion. I grew up in a home that everyone was included. There wasn’t an event that was exclusively for ‘this group’ of people. I am so thankful that because my mum cared for people, especially those down and out, that we always shared our table, our home and even our room at times with people that had no where else to go. Friends of ours that were in difficult families, whose families didn’t live close by, people who were stuck for a place, old and young were welcome. I think that’s why even at this age I really struggle with not including … its just not in my nature. I think of those ones…

The gift of love is eternal… indelibly loved!

The gift of love is eternal… indelibly loved! The gift of love is eternal. When we give love, it just keeps giving. The precious words ‘I love you’ are never wasted even if there is no response to you sharing your love. Love makes and indelible impression on people’s’ hearts. It may not show that it has hit its mark today, but the mark is there and hopefully one day it will be acknowledged. I remember long long ago when I didn’t know how to say ‘I love you’ but the ‘I love you’s’ were in me. I didn’t grow up hearing those words, I just kind of knew I was loved. I learnt to love through my now husband and his precious mum ♥ My second mum. Love was their language and I felt the love, I knew I was loved and I was told I was loved. I knew…

Using our allotted time…

Using our allotted time…. How long is a lifetime? A lifetime doesn’t always end up being the length of what we thought a lifetime would be… We can be here one day and gone the next… nothing is guaranteed so what do you want to make it count for? What is it that you were gifted with to give? To give yourself… to give your family… to give your community… Live with a passion to release that and spread around the fragrance of it wherever you go! My passion is to share the hope that I have found, the peace and purpose I have found in Jesus and to be a light so that those looking for the light will know where to come, and when they come I pray that I will always know what to give them, the right words, love, empathy, care and compassion. None of these is…

Blessed to be a Blessing… A message for Christmas and every other day of the year!

We are blessed to be a blessing – we can be a blessing to so many people… Just think about all the people around us and some are in need that we know of and some are in need that we don’t know of… If you listen to people you can read and hear the signs  and then its simple to follow through from there on in! I’ve been thinking that really… WE NEED LESS of things and we need to GIVE more of things… love, care, time, wisdom, so much we can give for nothing… and then practically… we can give something little that can make a huge impact. This Christmas season this is my focus… We don’t have to help every person we come across but usually there are plenty of easy, free, inspiring ways we can… People in financial need – we don’t need to give a lot,…
