Be Encouraged

A few weeks ago, I embarked on a creative project, I really wanted to encourage women, this had been on my heart to do for some time now.

So, I started experimenting with colours, paints and cards. It was so much fun and I was really in the moment. I love giving to others.

Another little adventure was going to the post office and finding out how much stamps cost. I went to the post office to buy some stamps, which I had not purchased for a long time. I found out to send a letter in Australia it was one dollar, to send a letter to America it was three dollars, to send a letter to England one dollar and to send a letter to Bali it was two dollars thirty.

Who knew?

The creative journey began, women messaged me and I wrote to them encouraging them. I wanted to them to know that they are so worthy, valued and loved. The message where personal just for them. I thought about how much they helped others and how amazing they are.

Do you need encouragement?

Would you like a letter?

We all need some encouragement from time to time.

Be brave.

You can nominate someone to receive a beautiful encouraging card.

Will share more soon.

My Latest Creative Project

This has always been on my heart about encouraging women.  I am passionate about encouraging women to believe in themselves.

Last weekend I spent the day experimenting with paints, pens, with colours and also with encouraging words.

I have been thinking about women who have been going through an eating disorder and how I could encourage them. This week as I was driving to work I had one of those amazing moments where I had an answer to my question Yeah!

What I would really love to do is send you, yes you beautiful one an encouraging message.

This weekend I have been in that creative process, of thinking and of reflecting. I have allowed myself time to sit to just be, without thinking I should be doing this and that.

Worship music has been on and I have been singing again.

Yes, I miss singing.

I have placed aside for the moment my studies, just for this weekend.

I have been in that space where creativity needs to come back into my life.

Being creative fuels me, it encourages me, sometimes it’s frustrating and sometimes it can be messy.

I need to do something creative every day to find my balance. It’s in that creative space that we all to often forget to spend time, that’s when we allow ourselves to have the moment that is when refreshing will fall upon us.

This is when new ideas will appear this is where we see the colour coming back into our lives.

Having the space to create is where ideas start flowing.

Inspiration makes a comeback.

If you having been embracing your creativeness how are you going to bring it back?

What is one thing that you can do today to spend time in that creative space?

Get out your pens, paper, scrapbook, your guitar or whatever leads you to your creative space.

Today just be creative.

Give yourself time to let the creativity begin.

Broken

Broken

A few Sunday’s ago, I was walking into the Church that I attend I had this thought, that this is the place for the broken. Church is the place for Broken People.  We can walk into Church and we can just be. We can just breathe. This is the place where we can just be us, the place where we don’t have to have it altogether, where we can just be ourselves, the place where we can be real.

This is the place that we can bring our brokenness and lay it at Jesus feet.

I really wanted to share this for anyone who is feeling Broken.

May this be the day that you wipe away those tears of shame of loss of disappointment of loneliness of confusion and of rejection.

May today be the day where those tears that you have cried, have made you stronger.

That today may you no longer struggle with those thoughts of brokenness, of shame and of loss.

May today be the day that you know how much that you are loved.

May today be the day that you realise that someone is cheering you on.

We all have those days where we feel that we have let ourselves down. We all have those days where we feel disappointed in ourselves, where we feel so hurt and broken. We all have those dark and lonely times when we are experiencing great hurt.

Have you been there, has this happened to you?

We need to be gentle with ourselves.

You are not alone.

Find a Church that can help you.

Find someone that can pray with you.

Look after yourself beautiful one.

Community

Community

Today I have been thinking about community and how important it is.

I am so encouraged by community, I am so encouraged when a community comes together and supports one another.

There is something about being in community.  There is something about the strength of a community. There is something about the support of a community.

I love my role as a primary school Chaplain, I have mentioned this before in a few blogs, but I really do. I love what I get to do.

I am so blessed in the community (schools) that I get to be a part of.

I am in awe of their passion for the students that they are journeying with.

I am so encouraged by the people that I work with and how they go the extra mile for students in their school.

I am so encouraged by their commitment, I am so encouraged about their passion, I am so encouraged about how they want to make a difference. I am so encouraged about their vision. I am so encouraged how they want every student to have the best possible experience at school.

I am so encouraged and love how much they care.

I am so encouraged about how much they give of their time.

There are so many behind the scene moments that we will never know about.

The community that I am involved in spend hours in their own time working on preparing for their students.

I know all about this because I see this and I hear about this.

Let’s support each other in the community that we find ourselves in.
