My Backyard.

Our wonderful neighbours have allowed us to trim the top of their tree. While it wasn’t a problem to have a hindered view, and the Jacaranda was a lovely substitute for the ocean (I very much enjoy the spectacular lavender flower it produces each year), now that the view lies unhindered, I have gained a surprising revelation: Water is good for the spirit. Previously I would enter the house numerous times a day without stopping – quick, quick, quick – busy, busy, busy. Now I stop, enjoy the view of Sunset Bay, take a moment to reflect on how blessed I am, then continue on my way with a renewal of spirit.

At a time of emotional upheaval it has been a lovely addition to my life. The sunrise over the ocean horizon reminds  me that the Lord has given me the day. That His creation is there to be enjoyed and give blessing. Please stop this day and look around you to de-stress – it’s been given to you for the taking.

    gday rose. i get the same joy from a window we added after a small renovation all for miss matilda. We live on a main road and once the garage was converted to a play room we now have one window through which i can see nothing but bushland. No wires, no traffic lights, no telephone poles. i love the windy days as I can watch the trees dancing from my kitchen. Love your posts very beautifully written in a world of shorthand sms and facebook replys.

    1. HI Juanita,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog. I don’t know if your Mum has mentioned it – but I have my first novel coming out in November this year. I have set this up to enhance my public profile. My intension is that my writing is reflected here. Hopefully interesting points of view and read-able content. Can’t wait to see you guys again – bet Tilly had grown – as all little people do. When you are up next please let us know. xoxo
