I'm delighted that you are here, sharing this God-given treasure-hunt called life with me... So many gifts waiting to be discovered. So, here's to life, joy and health!

8 June 2012


Sleep overtook my thoughts of '3 gifts empty' 'What does that look like?'...

Then before I knew it, light was peeking round the edges of the curtains signalling that the new day had begun. "3 gifts empty" came flashing back to me. I rolled over...
...and I knew...

'3 gifts empty'

It had had God's fingerprints all over it! We had finished the work contract and had decided to move the kids back to 'civilization'. After 10 years of moving constantly I wanted to settle down. It was nothing short of miraculous that we had been able to buy a house. I was so excited!
All we needed was a new source of income...
It came, but not as I envisaged it.
My darling was offered a job in the place we were leaving. Commuting to and fro.
I was not gracious. I struggled to be thankful. I felt incredible pain.

2 1/2 years have now gone by. His side of the bed is often empty. I miss him.
But I have received 3 gifts from that empty bed...
...I have learned that I can survive by myself. I am comfortable with 'me'
...I have drawn so much closer to God. He has become my source
... My darling & I are also so much closer now. Time together is so precious

'3 gifts empty'
I'm thankful
