I can remember as a young child when my mother worked at a bank being fascinated with the idea that at every bank teller there was a button that could instantly pop up a wall. There were always signs and warnings to ensure that you stood back just in case those walls popped up. They...

Forgiveness

July 30, 2014 | 0 Comments

Unforgiveness is such a horrible thing. I once heard someone describe unforgiveness as hitting yourself in the head and expecting the other person to feel the pain. I am sure we can all think of examples and maybe even experiences in our own lives where holding on to unforgiveness had more of a negative effect...

Showers

May 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

I love a long shower – morning, noon and night. I don’t understand people who like to have a quick shower and move on. Why would you not want to stand under there until the water ran out? As a teenager, I’d come from sport in winter and stand under the shower until the hot...

Prayer Receipts

May 11, 2014 | 0 Comments

I send and receive a large amount of emails each day for work – some days it seems all I do is reply to emails. I often wish that the email system I use has the feature of ‘return receipts’, where I get a notification that informs me the recipient has opened (and hopefully read)...

Redeemed Vision

Samson is a great character from the Old Testament. A man who kind of got it right, and also got it wrong. A man who was given an incredible gift – right at a time when it was needed most by the Hebrews. If you know the story, Samson’s final victory was bringing down the...

Gadget Dependency

November 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

I love my gadgets. I’m always at the stage of getting bored with one and looking for my next acquisition. The one common aspect between every gadget I own is they all require powered to run. I’ve become so dependant upon them, for life and for work, that at times when the battery goes flat...

If there’s something that really frustrates me about social networks, it has to be abuse (and overuse) of hash tags. Hash tags were created to be a simple way of grouping content based on a keyword. They were never intended to be long sentences, tacked on to the end of statuses as a weird way...

The Past and The Future

October 25, 2013 | 0 Comments

It’s the eyes that get me every time. “Yes Daddy, I will keep my room tidy” she says after we have spent the past hour sorting through toys I didn’t even know she owned.  We’ve just finished implementing a strategic plan to keep her room organised and tidy that avoids the culling of what seems...

Ministry in a Box

October 23, 2013 | 0 Comments

I have an old friend who is one of those extremely creative types. Everything he does is brilliant. One of his many gifts is song writing and although his style of music is very “alternate” his lyrics were always very poetic. One line in a song he wrote that I will never forget is his...

Flavours

October 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a teenager in the mid 90’s, Australia was introduced to the wonderful American candy known as the Jolly Rancher. Something that may be so common in America was such an attraction and an addiction to Australian teenagers when it became a part of our market. Unfortunately these days I can only seem to find...
