Looking UP not out…

Looking up and not out… Life gets me down you know… I might seem super confident and positive and I am but actually if I don’t keep my eyes on the right things it really gets to me a lot. So much happening around us and I don’t want to avert my eyes. I want to see things and be a part of the solution and know where the help is needed and I want to be aware… I want to acknowledge people’s struggles and by that I honor them. (That’s what I like to do). However, when I look AROUND it affects me a lot…. in so many ways… I can feel myself get dragged into the hopelessness… I don’t know any hope in this world in the end, except Jesus. This week it really got me… blindness of the world, the inward nature of people, the wish that…

Memories are key…

Memories are the key not to the past but to the future! ~Corrie ten Boom~ Memories are key… I remember you… memories… good and bad… some are in the forefront of our minds and some are tucked away and hidden but they are there and they think they can pay us a visit any time they like. What calls them forth? Where have they been and from where do they come? Memories are calling to me lately…. they are coming back and they seem to haunt and taunt me… I ask myself the question how do I deal with them? They are real, but they are of the past, they changed the outcomes of my life but thank GOD that He redeemed my life and His grace was applied to each and every one. Is it ok to shove them back into the recesses of my mind or should I…

Lets keep it real.

Lets keep it real. There is some crazy stuff happening out there in the world. What will we do about it? Can’t live life in a bubble for too long, though – they tend to pop sooner rather than later although many try to stay in as long as they can! Truth and reality is not convenient usually… but it doesn’t change truth and it doesn’t change reality. We can pretend to not care, not have an opinion, to take the safe stance but the place where truth counts the most is in our own heart. Truth cannot be denied on the inside. We may try to camouflage it but it’s STILL there… It’s easy to feel that it’s all too hard… But maybe it will make it more hard in the end by ignoring it.. Living in a bubble is often a safety mechanism and we all need a…

Camouflaging by comfort….

Camouflaging by comfort…. There are things that we do, friends that we have, patterns that we keep re-living which disguise what is really going on in our life, and when these things come to a stop it can be scary. When we see these things, as if for the first time, our first instinct is usually to run straight back to them because they have been or still are a security blanket, a help, a relief. In reality these things, these people, these distractions, will never really bring relief that we desire, they will only cover up the way we were actually feeling in the first place. It is finally when we feel this way that we are able to assess where we really are at that moment, and its then that we ever really have a hope of being free and achieving our potential. We must think twice before…

There are worse things in the world…

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. There’s worse things in the world… Mmmmm don’t I wish I could dye my hair… I hate the fact that I can’t dye it, at all, ever again but if it’s a choice between dye and die I think I won’t dye… It’s pretty hard to accept that you can’t dye your hair. In 2012 I had severe allergic reactions to hair dye. It has been coming on for a long while… I didn’t read the signs…. An ingredient that’s in 99% of hair dyes, even the all natural ones, including Henna called PPD is the culprit. I spent ages researching on line, maybe I will again but I would need to buy the dye from overseas.. And they don’t work well, and I’d need up find an allergist to confirm it would be safe for ME! If I dye my hair again, simply…
