July Blogging Challenge – Word a Day

Day 3 – Vibrant

It’s a cloudy winter’s day in Perth and I’ve found that on days like these the colours of life seem to dissipate.  I often feel lethargic and flat.  However, I’ve realised too that this is a choice.  I can allow myself to feel the lethargy or I can actively counter that.  
This morning in church, Haydn was talking about encountering God.  That a God encounter is more amazing and wonderful than any other experience we can even imagine.  I like to think that this is what really counts.  That resting in the presence of God is enough.  Enough to chase away the grey in our world.  
I think of the vibrant flush of colour in a rainbow.  The rainbow that was a symbol of God’s covenant with Noah after the flood.  A promise that He would never destroy the world again because of the sin of His people.  He sent Jesus, the Light of the world, instead to save us.  
I think of sunlight piercing through the clouds and brightening the wet roads in the city.  Blinding, yet illuminating all at once.  The flashes of warmth from the rays of winter sun are well worth soaking up.  Taking advantage of the beautiful sunny days in winter  think is essential for lessening the affect of the gloomier days.  We make sure to spend as much time outside with the children at work on the ‘warmer’ days in light of this fact.  
I think of…well, so many things and I never have enough words to explain them.
I apologise for the rambling nature of this post.  I got distracted by social media and my game on my iPad.  Perhaps we should all just go and look for what is most vibrant in life today…or tonight?

How do you invision your life being in 5 years?

Great question.  Now that I’m getting married in less than three months I think it would be safe to say that in 5 years I will be content in a secure and loving marriage with the man God brought into my life.  And we may very well have children.  Or at least one child.  
And Mark will have his dream of a cafe that makes a difference up and running and I will be working with children in some capacity or other.  That’s what I invision.  God willing.
What’s your food philosophy?

What the heck is a good philosophy?
I eat when I’m hungry and that’s about it.  I try to eat a balanced diet but it can be difficult.  And I don’t believe in dieting. Everything in moderation is good.  Even chocolate. 
Oh and I could not ever become a vegetarian.

July 30 day blogging challenge – Day 2/3/4

One piece of advice for a newborn child?

I would tell them to enjoy life and explore everything.  Of course they would probably not understand that until they’re older, but that’s what I would want to be told.
Last movie I saw in the theatre?

Mark and I went to see Jurassic World not long ago.  It was pretty amazing if I say so myself.  The graphics and the story and the dinosaurs.  Wow. 
The music hit the sweet spot and Chris Pratt?  Well.  Just well.
My favourite scenes were anything that had the velociraptors in it though.  My favourite predatory dinosaur.  
What would be one thing I would get rid of?

Discrimination based on race, gender, religious affiliation and sexual orientation. Period.
