A walk in the snow

Standard

 It snowed – hurrah! I love how pretty snow makes everything. Mum and I decided to go for a little walk and this is what we saw…

And there’s nothing better than coming back in out of the cold and snuggling up under a fluffy blanket with a cup of hot chai tea. Bliss!

Glory all around

Standard

Last weekend I went away with a group of friends from church. We had a great time together, I got quite a lot of crochet done whilst chatting and taught a 10 year old how to cast on and cast off. I taught her how to knit last year, and she’s spent the whole year not knowing how to start or finish!

On Sunday morning we had a couple of hours quiet time. I decided to go for a little walk and note down all the ways that God’s beauty and glory is displayed all around…
