  • these past few days were absolutely unbelievable. God moved in ways unlike anything I have ever seen before. I love these people, Jesus, and this ministry. God is good my friends!!! (P.s. If you are ages 18-25, I highly recommend checking out @bayside.college ! The community is unreal and their leadership is incomparable. Plus, the presence of God is undeniable when a group like this gathers together! Getting involved changed my life and I swear you won’t regret it!)

  • Into the bloom🎈
I have finally decided to start reading George Martin’s books from “song of ice and fire”. I wanted to compare with the series. All hopes for when I am done reading the remaining books, he will finish the nest🤭
What are you reading right now?
Решилась я наконец то начать читать книги Джорджа Мартина из его цикла «песнь льда и пламени», сравнить захотелось с сериалом. Надеюсь, что к моменту, когда я осилю последнюю вышедшую книгу, этот товарищ допишет следующую🤭

  • “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!” - Philippians 4:4
———
My heart burns for a release of joy over our generation. I think too many of us have experienced things in our lives that have robbed us of the joy we once carried. I’m believing God wants to restore that joy in your heart, but it might require letting go of some things first. It might require forgiving someone who has caused a lot of pain in your life. It might require being in a season of singleness. It might require stepping out of your comfort zone. It might require humbling yourself in your friendships & serving those who might not deserve it. Joy is a choice. It’s something you have to press into every single day, in every situation. Choosing joy is actually choosing to be more like Jesus, because a joyful heart is the result of a heart burning with love. A joyful heart is the result of a heart full of patience. A joyful heart is the result of a heart full of grace & forgiveness. A joyful heart is the result of walking in the fullness of what Jesus died for. Choose joy.

  • Saw the full moon. Felt as those I was looking st the second picture (swipe left). Came out of the most holy hell yes of a yoga class led by the sublime @kathypeterson78 and my whole being was on fire with bliss. I looked up and saw you sweet sister moon and felt my heart expand even more. What a blessing is this life. Going to keep rolling this vibe into my evening meditation and some mighty consciousness encoding. Life is what you make it. No, I mean for real.

  • Fathers don't always get all the attention, gift and sweet words our mothers get. A lot of times, we don't even appreciate the sacrifices they make, but they are always our capeless superman.
.

For all the fathers that have stripped themselves of all comfort for their family, thank you for your selflessness. For those who have taken up the responsibility of a mother we appreciate you. . 
We do not forget those fathers who have served as mentors and teachers. #happyfathersday

  • Just reflecting today on how powerful and undefinable love is. It’s been 8 Father’s Days since I got to tell him, hear his voice, or feel his hug. Yet I feel every ounce of the love. It is not past tense. I am loved by my dad. All the love we’ve ever received in our lives is still here for us. It’s powerful enough to blot out the hurts and imperfections. Even the memory of love is present and powerful enough to transform us, if we let it. 
Let’s realize the power of our love and pour out every ounce of it we can while we’re here. ❤️

  • A lot has changed around here in the last few weeks. 
I swapped Evee and Tatums rooms around. This was purely to see if it was just Evee’s room causing the night terrors. It’s easier since she moved in there. But she isn’t sleeping as well... which means I’m getting less sleep. But hey she likes it in there and doesn’t want to move back so that’s a positive. 
Tatum is still in our room. I’m thinking about trying him in his new room end of this month when Jaco is back from his second trip away (and I don’t have to have my baby separated from me when I’m alone). Tv time for Evee is barely a thing anymore unless she’s been good or if it’s a quiet/rainy day and then she’s allowed one movie and then it goes off straight away. Before it was quite a regular thing.. like multiple movies a day. I am so grateful I have stuck to it because now she’s actually playing. She’s got such an amazing imagination and when she plays quietly it’s so cute to watch. She’s not asking for the tv as much now and when she does watch it she’s so excited she actually understands it’s a treat now.

And finally I of course changed the lounge around AGAIN. To something we’ve never tried before.. it’s different. Tight. But cosy. It’s been a busy few weeks but I am constantly reminded how grateful I am that God always pulls through for us and I’m finally realising I never have to doubt anything. 
Be joyful in hope. Patient in affliction, faithful in prayer - Romans 12:12

  • Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful fathers we know!! Here are some of my absolute favourite pics of GiGi with Daddy, Grand Pip and Papa. We are all so lucky to have them in our lives and we couldn't be more grateful for them. We love you all very much. 😘😘😘 xxxxxxxxx 
We're going to bake a special strawberry cake this morning 🍰 as our delivery hasn't arrived and our card making hasn't been quite timely enough! So really hoping the old phrase is true and the way to a man's heart really is through his stomach. 🤔😋😉😘

So I shot my last wedding yesterday and it was one to remember! So now I’m hanging up the cameras and focusing on my health, fitness and fertility journey! Excited and nervous about the potentially long road ahead...3 years in and I’m hoping our journey ends with us being healthy, happy parents.

  • You are my light
you're the lamp upon my feet
All the Time, my Lord I need you there
You are my light
I can not live alone
let me stay by your guiding love
All through my life
Lead me Lord
Lead me Lord
even though at times
I'd rather go along my way
help me take the right direction
Take your road
Lead me Lord
and never leave my side
all my days, all my life... Song by Gary Valenciano

One of my favorite inspirational songs  of all time. It truly lifts my heart to God everytime I hear it.
