The Complexities of Love

I don't want to feel because it hurts too much
I don't want to care because it causes me to feel
I don't want to love because it causes me to care
But without love I am nothing

Simple Beauty

The Mark of a Follower

John 13:34-35
" A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
What a wonderful God.

See You Soon Action Master...

We said goodbye to an amazing man and friend today. Foz was a man after God's own heart and lived his life for the Jesus he knew to be real and true. I thank God for the enormous privelege of knowing him and greatly look forward to the awesome party to come. See ya Foz. We will deeply miss you. Thankyou for your love for Jesus and the infectious fearlessness with which you lived your life. See you soon.
Looking forward to it...

Makeshift Ocean

Kuroshio Sea- the second largest aquarium tank in the world.
Song is 'Please Don't Go' by Barcelona
Wow. The serenity and calm of the ocean still evident behind a glass screen...

A Brand New Day

I woke up early this morning to do exercise with a friend. I am normally one of those people who find great difficulty in emerging from slumber and stirring up quality enthusiasm for the day ahead. However as I drove down to the beach this morning I was taken by the enormous beauty of the sun rising over the vast horizon. There is something about the innocence of the morning that charms me. It is still, it is quiet, it is peaceful and it is so worth the effort.

Start at the Beginning

I have never attempted a 'blog' before nor strived to become a 'blogger.' However it is here that I find myself. I am a wife, a mother, a surfer, a writer and a dreamer. I would like to become an expert at many things but am currently an expert on none. I enjoy the close intimacy of the water and its restorative effects on my mind. I am continually doing my best to keep a quiet heart amongst the chaos. But apart from all of these and also in all of these, I am most importantly a child of Christ, aiming to put the creator above the created. I am no longer lost but found in him.
