Encouragement / 26.09.2018

I love achieving goals and dreams. It is an incredible feeling that you never forget. You just want more of it. Who doesn’t?   But I have found in myself that my attitude shifts like a boat on a restless sea sailing to achieve that goal or dream I have in mind. I am hopeful. I am despairing. I am determined. I am on the verge of giving up. I am peaceful. I am frustrated. And probably on the top of that list in bold letters should be written I...

As you know today is not Thursday, my typical day for blogging. I don’t usually write on a Saturday but today is an exciting day. Dandelion Dust & Honey is 2! For me that’s something worth celebrating and obviously a reason to eat cake.   Many of you have travelled the two years with me, others have only joined recently, whatever the case I thank you for embracing Dandelion Dust & Honey with kindness and love.   I can’t imagine where the next two years will take me, but I look forward...

Travel / 19.04.2018

This is my first ever travel blog post! Although I don’t want it to be your typical one. Yes I think you should all pack your bags and experience beautiful Byron Bay for yourselves; but I hope you never give up on your travel dreams. I got reminded just how sweet it is when you achieve a dream. Ticking off one from the bucket list it is an incredible feeling. I added Byron Bay to my bucket list about 2 years earlier. I discovered the clothing brand Spell &...

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. I had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s. Having more energy was definitely a big factor in enjoying the festive season but it was more than that for me. It was making memories; for instance we played cricket as a whole family and welcomed in the New Year with family friends, glow stick bracelets, sparklers and fireworks on TV. So different from last year (Turning Over a New Leaf)! The festive season gave me hope and excitement for...

It is one more sleep until we have made it a year! That’s right on 15th September 2016 I posted my first blog post for Dandelion Dust & Honey called New Beginnings. I was never really the person to be like ‘one day I am going to start a blog’ I mean what would I call it and what on earth would I write about? The excuses kept coming. Yet Jesus kept nudging me with the idea. I remember a friend’s dad once said to me something like ‘Jesus...

Luke 8:24 - 25 “The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.” As I write this week my foot is hurting due to straining it for the umpteenth time (thanks Dad for strapping it). It was already hurting but making chocolate brownies pushed it over the edge. On one hand I should have taken better care of my...

Numbers 6:24 – 26” The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.” When plans don’t work out like we thought or hoped it can hurt but there will be something better for us, a sweeter dream for us to dream or maybe we need to wait longer making it more precious once it is achieved. In 2011, when I started year 12, I had no intention to...

Isaiah 45:9 – 10 “Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘He has no hands?’ Woe to him who says to his father, ‘What have you begotten?’ or to his mother ‘What have you brought to birth?’ This week I just feel exhausted. The kind of exhaustion that makes me want to stay in bed but knowing if I do...

2 Timothy 2:20 – 21 “In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” This week I have been preparing with Jesus to share a different part of my journey in life to a different live audience. This time I won’t...
