International Day of the Girl

October 11 is International Day of the Girl

If I am mentioning this special day, set apart to honour, support and recognise the needs of girls, why post a picture of men?

Because men in Uganda  have stepped up to help!

Please give, share, pray and rejoice as girls are equipped to step into the future God has prepared for them.

back in colour

colour splash
light vibrates
around each corner
stepping back 
into African life
as if I never 
had departed

Faithfulness and an announcement

He promised to honour my surrender
through all my fears 
that it would never happen
here we are again Africa

So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering 
the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, 
for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word. 

As a way of helping our loyal followers 
keep a digital eye on us
I have created a new website

I invite you to take a peek
listen to God's heart for Africa
and fall in love

God Bless the Broken Road

Even when faith seems buried under so many layers of pain and disappointment that you can't find it, God still sees, loves and holds His children.

This film mixes sudden widowhood, fatherlessness, NASCAR racing, friendship, family tension and more; while God remains the star of the story. When the main character turns her back on Him, He never leaves her.

The truth of the Gospel wove through the film without distracting from it's pure entertainment and pointed to the only place to turn when there is nowhere left to turn.

Both my husband and I enjoyed watching and will watch again to catch some of the more subtle and humorous moments. This is a film for all.

in the blur

sun rising
through rain
softening the edges
we inhale
living in the blur
waiting for what the day 
will bring

and His voice
quiet as ever, whispers
look through My eyes

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever. 
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 The Message

rainless storm

rain threatened all afternoon
skies darkened in layers
the wind grew fierce
reversing waves, chasing
water away from shore

later, when stillness fell
sun blazed beneath the clouds

teach me to wait
for the promise of glory

sunset to sunset

from sunset to sunset
days slip fast away
pain steals my time
yet I pray no twinge
no gasp, no tear
is wasted

use this as You will, Lord
use this as You must
but let it not be in vain

If you will receive yourself in the fires of sorrow, 
God will make you nourishment for other people.
Oswald Chambers
