“Quiet down before God, be prayerful before him. Don’t bother with those who climb the ladder, who elbow their way to the top.” Psalm 37:7 MSG So often when I stand before God, or the mystery of what I don’t yet know, piled up with my fears frustrations and life-stuff, I am searching in an almost crazed sort of desperation; for immediate clear answers, verses, a sudden divine arrival of ‘help from above.’ Although this […]

Through the eyes of the stranger.

There’s something pretty lovely about unexpectedly being welcomed into a home you are unfamiliar with. It draws into the light, the simple wonder of people, and in particular, wonders that might otherwise go unnoticed; a woman with a natural inclination towards being hospitable, while yours is towards being self sufficient. The man who tells a number of stories that bring a certain warmth and encouragement to your soul. The teenager who made dessert for five, and […]

The Track that So Faithfully Leads.

How easy it is to momentarily lose our own selves – to feel lost to what we want, know or think. This slope is a slippery  one and far too difficult to climb back up the same way we slid down. Alternative routes have to be made, perhaps around the mountain step by step, trudging a track that circulates the mountain many times over before reaching the top, before reaching a higher height – but […]

Value

Why is it that we must value ourselves? Why do we need to  know and understand our value? One might assume that it doesn’t even matter, or perhaps consider it less humble to consider it important. But I think humbleness, might be quite contrary. What I am seeing on this matter of value, is that if we truly know and consider our value, maybe we will know what gives us substance, we will know what […]

It’s almost been one glorious year since my feet hit this turf. It pushed and it pulled just a little bit, But beyond any of that. It taught me stuff. In hindsight it really hasn’t been about the one big beginning, but rather – the lots of little beginnings it brought – the day in and day out things. Losing the familiar path to start an unfamiliar one. The friendships. The work. The places. The […]

Hello. I suppose this is to all you lovelies I’m blessed to know. Kind of a bit of a happy-2015-to-you type thing, not to mention a very appreciative toodlepip to 2014, I like what happened there. xx   // Umm. You are a bundle of good things. I just wanted to say don’t let another year roll on by where you let someone else define who you are; where you are confined and limited to someones […]

  My wee annemarie head and heart has been thinking a little bit….. and there’s more….. gosh there’s always more. I’d always heard that fear holds the power to stop me loving other people. That perfect love casts out fear and all that. But it never made sense. Sounds nice though. Ha. Fear. This word always crops up for me.. Like every day. Maybe it’s just me but..  What even is it? In its best […]

Oh my goodness me. All the little things make me smile. The things that sprout all over an ‘ordinary day’ Things like; The steps I run, I go up, I go down. Every time I see something new, and all the different hues of vibrant green sprouting ‘hellos’ at each step. The yellow dandelions. The purple flower and the sun shining behind it and making its petals a little bit transparent. The wildly growing rose […]
