Roses may be red and violets blue but Love is… NOT poetry My Dad’s wedding gift to us was a simple assignment. Read 1 Corinthians 13. Of course we were both already familiar with this passage, and studied it together during our courtship. I remember us attempting this whlist in the first days of our newlywed high – with the best intentions, it seemed like … Continue reading Love is… NOT poetry
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:17) There’s this freedom in Jesus that I so long for. I’m certain it’s in Him. I see glimpses of it on people’s faces when we worship. When we are in His presence. When we stop caring and raise our hands, or sit still contemplating … Continue reading Free indeed…?

I recall my explanation to a friend – since I couldn’t bring myself to trust anyone, I would make sure anything I disclosed … Continue reading Vulnerability in Love
It isn’t my relationship that redeemed me. Some of us have been to terrible, dark places in our lives – paths we blame ourselves for journeying; so that if any man or woman should choose to love us, deep within us we believe there lies our redemption. “She can be loved” His proposal tells the world “she can be loved”, and having her by his side makes him … Continue reading Relationship Status?

It changes the way we see all that is around us. Our priorities are often rearranged, we sing a new chorus in our hearts, and our minds are filled and fuelled by it. “God said” starts more … Continue reading Is anything too hard for the Lord?
