Breathe

Breathe

Some of you may have heard that at the beginning of October I injured myself when I was tackled by a teenager at work. From that time my hip has given me continual problems. Today as I sat once again in the physiotherapist’s office with tears in my eyes, I felt immensely discouraged.  She had […]

Two years on

Two years on

Sometimes I forget what a mess I was two years ago. I mean some days it feels so close that I have a momentary panic that I’m one slip from going back into that muck. There are days that I get my thoughts wrapped in the wrong direction and I can feel myself heading down […]

The blessing of friends

The blessing of friends

I have been keeping a list of thing I am grateful for the last few days but our blog site was down for some reason. We are back in action now though, so the list continues… I guess the last week I have really been grateful for the friends God has placed in my life. […]

It continues…

It continues…

On a day when  nothing seems to be going right and I keep messing up my words, just continuing my list is the best I can do. 81. A family where at the end of the day I can still be confident they love me, even if I don’t deserve it 82. The smell of […]

Healing wounds…

Healing wounds…

People say that time heals all wounds and I believe that idea to a point. I think that the rawness of a painful situation start to lessen as each day goes by. It becomes easier to get up each morning and eventually you stop just going through the motions. One day you wake up and […]

Living through the ups and downs

Living through the ups and downs

Today has been one of those days that I have needed to open my eyes a little wider to catch a glimpse of the beauty around me. It has been a trying day to say the least. After having a camp of about 370 kids and somewhere around 35 adults all week, I think it’s […]

Just another day at the Springs…

Just another day at the Springs…

Today I figured I would just leave it to the list of things I am grateful for 26. A tattoo artist that is passionate about his work 27. Sitting outside with friends for lunch, just so we can soak up more of the sun 28. A little boy who chose to try his first activity […]

The thankful man

The thankful man

A thought has been rolling through my head the last few days about a story from the Gospels. Basically it is about these ten men who had leprosy who cried out to God to have mercy on them. Jesus told them to go show themselves to the priests and as the men went Jesus healed […]
