In praise of little things premium
One day last week I was out walking in my neighbourhood enjoying the amiable sunshine and flirty breeze, when out of the corner of my eye (though why my eyes, which are not square, should have corners at all, I do not know) I glimpsed a spent camellia flower drop from its branch to the garden below. It took one […]
Battling bugs and flaming arrows premium
I think whoever finds an antidote for the more than 200 viruses that cause the common cold will become an instant billionaire, and receive the praise and gratitude of people everywhere. Having coughed and sniffled my way through three out of the last four weeks, I know I’d be standing in the queue to thank them! Apparently, no one can ever […]

Singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs premium

Dating from the late 18th century, Forms of prayer, for the use of Christian families was written […]

I don’t always notice them; in the rush of food preparation and mealtimes, I have plenty of other things to think about. But if I’m paying attention and the light […]
Am I missing something? premium
Last month my daughter and I drove over 3,000 kilometres to Adelaide and back, to attend a family celebration. We could have travelled by plane – again – and it would have taken less than two hours. And yet I longed to pass through, breathe in and hear the wide, brown land that we normally miss when we’re cruising […]

New things for a new-ish year premium
Hello friends! In God’s great kindness, I have had time with my family this summer, a much-needed rest and the luxury of head space which has helped me to think prayerfully about priorities for the year. So I’m making some changes, planning new things and tweaking others along the way. • By the end of February, I will […]
