I'm back! :)
Ok, truthfully I've been back for over a week now.
But the idea of actually getting on here and typing was too tiring, and I'm not actually sure when I would have had the time other than when I should have been sleeping.

I really really wish I could post a few photo's of all the fun we had in Kowanyama, but I can't post photos of the kids :( and after trawling through the ones I have, they just aren't interesting without the kids big grins in them :(

* So I found one photo from the slip n slide! I cut some kids faces out of it. That was one fun afternoon!

But don't fret. Saturday is the big teaparty, and trust me. I'll definitely be posting photo's from that day! And in saying that, I really do have a lot more preparation work to do for it, which means I shouldn't be sitting at the computer!! Enjoy your sunny day!!

I'm getting so excited!!

I leave for Kowanyama on Saturday and today Amie and I handed out the first of our invitations to the tea party!!!

So Amie and I have been organising a Tea Party. Go. Be Love.
Everyone is bringing something for mums and babies in need. It will be split between the homeless shelter and The Salvation Army family store for emergency packs.


It is going to be the most amazing tea party EVER!
Well... in our minds it is, so hopefully we can take it from there and make it reality.

Cupcakes, teacups and saucers,laughter, cookies, punch, sunshine, teapots, quotes, joy... seriously, I can't wait!!
Tomorrow more planning and crafting will be happening!! So excited!!

Then Saturday I'm off.
Off for a week of full on fun, laughter, games, craft, swimming, songs, dancing (well... I can't dance, but I can follow actions well enough), a community fete, making a community vegetable garden, day trips...


Tonight I'm just about jumping outta my skin I can't wait for these joys to be here already!
Don't worry, I'll stay in my skin. I'll pour over tea party pictures on the net and look through old trip photos and feed my excitement tonight, before I get crazy busy for the rest of the week organising.

I've not been up to posting anything for a lil' while now.
I have sat down, intent on writing something, anything, and my fingers have been lifeless and my mind blank.
I'm exhausted when I'm at home. I'm exhausted right now... don't quite know how I'm able to type properly.

I've been so busy lately. Work, Salvo's and way too rarely I fit in a friend or two.
If I'm not at home I'm fine. Somehow the body keeps going, though my mind might not always function at its highest level.
I don't feel like I'm doing too much, I'm looking after myself to the same degree as usual. I just have lost spare time for me.
I wonder if it will catch up on me? At the moment I rest in God's grace and call on His strength. Do I need more? I think many people would say "YES!".
But this week I've been wondering... Do we really need more? Or is that the world's point of view?
I really only feel I need to make sure I'm not making myself too busy working as well as doing what I feel is God's work, to keep in touch with Him. Which I admit, I've been doing lately. How can I do it in His strength if I don't even have time for Him?
I'm glad I've noticed. Can't fix a problem until you know it exists right?
Enjoy your weekend, sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy basking in the peace and rest only the Lord can provide.

Only one

It's become a bit of a joke that I'm out to save the world.
One of my close friends, her partner and mates have started to refer to me as Mother Theresa.
Honestly, I don't like it.
Not even the slightest bit.
I don't like being compared to a saint, and not someone so amazing and such a women of God as her. And I don't like the image of being a save the world crusader.
Is that wrong?
Should I be embracing this?

Do you know what God's will is for your life? I believe it's quite simple.
To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.
To love your neighbour as yourself.
And to look after the widows, orphans and those in need.

Those in need... Those lacking.
Those lacking in companionship
Those lacking in conversation
Those lacking in friendship
Those lacking in food and drink
Those lacking in shelter
Those lacking in nappies, formula & bottles
Those lacking in love
Those lacking in self esteem
Those lacking in family
Those lacking in a listening ear
The list is never ending.

My all time favourite quote is...

"I am only one, but still I am one.
I can not do everything, but still I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do"
~ Helen Keller.

There are a LOT of people out there lacking in physical and emotional and spiritual essentials to life.

Don't look at the large, gigantic, terrifyingly huge percentage of the population this encompasses.
Instead look at the one.

I am only one.

I can do something.

I will not refuse to do the something I can do.

That's all I'm doing.
The something I can do

He didn't listen

Mr Frog, he didn't listen to my polite request.

He instead has given me the GREATEST incentive to wash my dishes before leaving the house no matter what. This could be seen as a good sign, because I have no other incentive and am lazy.

Tonight I come home and he is enjoying a relaxing chill out in the dirty, chocolate icecream water in my bowl. That's so gross!! I'm disinfecting that bowl in the morning.

Dear Mr. F

Dear Mr. Frog

I do enjoy your company. Yes, I do.
I enjoy seeing you sleeping on the blinds during the day.
But I must tell you, I am rather getting sick of finding your poop on the kitchen window sill.
I also do not appreciate you taking over my kitchen sink when I am home.
Cooking and doing dishes may not occur daily, but I would like the chance to do them still the same.
In the future, please try and refrain yourself from taking over my kitchen till I am in bed.
Many thanks.
