What Makes You Smile?

What Makes You Smile?

I have been thinking about this for a while, What Makes You Smile?

Sometimes we can become so consumed by what we are doing that we can forget to think about the things that make us smile.

We can be so busy, we can forget in our days to just stop and breathe.

We can become so busy ticking of our to do list that we forget to focus on what is really going on in our life.

Have you been just so busy going about your day to day routines, that you just find yourself exhausted?

Have you ever found yourself at the end of the day arriving home and you just want to crash on the lounge and do nothing?

What if we reflected on our day?

What if we went about our day with purpose with the intention that I will focus on those moments that make me smile?

I need to remind myself of this as well.

What makes you smile?

I love this question and I have had to remind myself to focus on this as well.

Some things that make me smile are-

  • My church
  • Working at amazing schools
  • The people I work with
  • Being in community
  • Seeing a beautiful sunset
  • Hanging out with my nieces and nephew
  • Being creative
  • Laughing
  • Writing
  • Seeing people grow
  • My family
  • Supportive friends
  • Passionate people
  • The beach

I could add so much to the list.

I am just so grateful for what I have and this makes me smile.

I would love to hear from you what makes you smile.

Will share more soon.

Prayer Request 2018

Prayer Request 2018

praying3 (1)

There is something about the new year where there is so much encouragement for each other.

We set goals, we dream dreams and we want to achieve so much. We are excited about the new year, we have so much energy, passion and dedication for what we want to achieve.

I love community and I love how when we gather together, there is something really special. I love that when we all gather together, amazing things happen. In community we get to encourage and support each other, how amazing is that?

In community we can bring all of our brokenness, our desires, our dream and our goals together. When we bring this to our safe and supportive communities, we can find a place of acceptance. We know that we have support, that we are loved, that we are encouraged and we have wise counsel.

We need to find a safe place where we can just rest and be who God has called us to be. Have you found that safe place? Let me know if you need help in this area.

You are never alone, yes read this again you are never alone.

There is a community for you, beautiful one. If you are looking for a community begin by praying, pray for a community where you are accepted for who you are. A community where you can grow and develop who you are in Christ.

My prayer for The Heart Project is-

This is a community where we care, encourage and support each other. This is a safe place where we can just hang and discover who we really are. Beautiful one you are so accepted here.

You are worthy, valued, loved.

My thought is do you need prayer?

The Heart Project wants to pray for you.

Let me know what you need prayer for, this is ongoing.

Let 2018 be the year of prayer for you.

I am declaring breakthrough for you, be bold beautiful one, be brave, I are here for you.

List your prayer request.

Brave 2018

Brave 2018

I have been thinking about what my word would be for this year, last year my word was Hope.

It was difficult for me to decide on a word, I finally realised that for 2018 my word is Brave.

Brave, what would the year of being Brave look like for me?

I will share some thoughts with you-

  • Brave is saying yes to new adventures
  • Brave is trying new things
  • Brave is going to new places that I haven’t been to before
  • Brave is saying no to somethings
  • Brave is meeting new people
  • Brave is taking a risk on something that I have wanted to do for a while and haven’t committed too
  • Brave is getting out of my comfort zone
  • Brave is exploring
  • Brave is trusting God
  • Brave is reaching out to others
  • Brave is speaking about my journey
  • Brave is speaking up for injustice
  • Brave to be continued…………………..

Yes, being brave this year will be getting out of my comfort zone, it’s about being open to new opportunities.

Do you have a word for the year?

I would love to hear what your word is and what you are going to do?

Let encourage one another in this journey?

I will share more soon.

I have had a little break from my blog and I must say that I really miss writing.

I have had quite a busy time last year, I brought a lovely unit in May and I love being here.

I have also been quite busy in my role as a Chaplain and have been developing new programs at the schools that I work at.

One of the new programs that I have developed is Girls Group, which is for girls from year 4 to 6 and I love this program.

I have also started studying last year in June, I am finally studying a Diploma in Counselling which I love.

It just complements want I am doing in my role as a Chaplain.

I have also just been really busy at the schools that I work at.

It has been busy but I love what I get to do, I really do.

I have also made a commitment and am now back at a lovely church that I was involved in for over 10 years. I love being back at this amazing church, I feel like I am at home.

So yes, a new season.

Would love to hear what you have started this year.

I will be sharing more soon.
