Willing To Waterslide

Willing To Waterslide

Our local community run an annual festival. And every year the scouts construct an amazing water slide down a huge hill. What starts out as a couple of tarps and a water pump becomes hours of endless fun for many children. Before we had even arrived at the festival I had mentioned this slide to our…

One Brick At A Time

One Brick At A Time

We currently have a section of our house where a brick layer is laying bricks. When he first arrived I was surprised that it was just him. We have had a number of trades in our house recently and there are usually a number of people on site. But this is just one brick layer…

Full To The Brim

I was recently filling a large tub of toys for our boys. It was all part of my plan to keep the house tidy! I had hardly cleaned up any of the toys when I realised the tub was already full. I piled as many toys into the tub as I possibly could but there…

Letter From Jesus

Letter From Jesus

Ruth went to her mail box and there was only one letter. She picked it up and looked at it before opening, but then she looked at the envelope again. There was no stamp, no postmark, only her name and address. She read the letter: Dear Ruth, I’m going to be in your neighbourhood Saturday…
