The Art of Generosity – General Thoughts

Christmas and the end of the year are always busy seasons as we gather ourselves together, spend another moment with those we love, before jumping into the New Year with anticipation and hope that ‘This will be our year’. But these seasons are always busy, and because people remain to be sick throughout this season […]

A Time For Everything – a Reflection

November looks a little different for this blog. Mostly because the month has disappeared away from me and also because I have been on nightshift for the entirety of it. It’s not that I don’t have anything meaningful to say, only that I have been reflecting on this year, and what it’s looked like, and […]

Rest and Refresh

Very often my life is so busy, my emotions constantly stimulated by what I am seeing and who I am becoming, I feel so unmotivated to write. And then other times, like a sudden strike of lightening, new thoughts and ideas begin to build like the coming together of a summer storm. A sudden urge […]

Write your own story

Travelling, like writing, has become another method of ‘release’ for me, especially lately. I have found that the best parts of me show when I am being challenged, driven and connected to places or people that have gone before me. Finding moments or activities in this world that bring us to life, is becoming more […]

Ears to Hear

Nine months ago, I found myself standing in a small costal village in East coast Papua New Guinea with a desire to write down what I was seeing. Here is what flowed from that moment. There are many little miracles we witness each day, and if we are not careful to enjoy them, or write […]

Just Around the Corner, I will see.

Wow, what an incredible two months it has been since I last shared on here! You know that saying “Just around the corner,” where all of a sudden everything changes? I’ve discovered it to be so true in my life right now, especially when you cry out to Jesus – but I’ll get to that. […]

A Faith Refined by Fire

To be completely honest, this message hasn’t come completely with ease to paper. It’s been a hard month, full of fatigue and not much else. But I believe it’s important in these seasons to keep sharing, to keep testifying and writing because if this is a space for honest devotion to God then this is […]

Resilience – A Poem

Resilience is defined as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness”. In my role as a nurse it is something that becomes a necessity in order to function well. Sometimes in our work, we are exposed to things that the general public would find quite confronting, and we are expected to continually function as […]

Forgiving, Faithful, Friends

Throughout my years here in Earth, I have learnt the importance of having great, loving friends. Friends, who share you dreams and passions, challenging them and encouraging them; who admire who you are and who you are becoming; Friends, that know how to have a fun time. A few years ago, when I was about […]
