Stepping out ….

January 2014 – the year I  finally realised that moment of sharing His love as we set out for the Philippines – South-East Asia.  Standing in the church grounds of Brisbane, Australia with a group of young people waiting for the bus and praying for safety in our travels, a fresh breeze blew from behind me on this still, balmy summer’s morning. Instantly my heart started dancing.  Yes, the Lord really is the wind behind my sails – no matter how long it has taken, I will journey on forward – until I reach my “Final Destination”.

Waiting at the terminal of the Gold Coast Airport, I remembered Mati.  I felt like I was “in my mother’s shoes”, metaphorically and literally  (I was actually wearing a pair of her white sandals).  I remembered how Mati had travelled to many places in groups and had been invigorated anew in her later years.  Yes, I absolutely recommend group travels at this stage of our lives.

Like Mati, I also ache for the physical closeness of my children and miss each one of them dreadfully.  Distance and geography – what a challenge!!

Thank God for –

  • Soul mates that sustain us
  • circumstances that stretch us
  • His love that strengthens us  –

I am a mother of three beautiful children and grandmother to three equally wonderful boys and a beautiful little girl. Retired from a teaching career, I have forever enjoyed the art and discipline of writing and expressing my love for the love God has poured into my life. Now, at the beginning stages of blogging, I'm trusting Him to lead me forward.
