Faint- refreshing.

Jeremiah 31:25
"I will 
refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."

Song of Solomon 2:5
Strengthen me with raisins, 
refresh me with apples,

Do you ever get those days where 
you are absolutely shattered,
tired and weary?

I have had a couple,
the last few days.
Partly due to the fact that I am 5 months pregnant and
daily growing!
Sleep is limited,
breathing is sometimes difficult,
and just the extra weight and strain 
normal pregnancy brings.
However I knew it was deeper than that,
Somewhere in my depths,
I was crying out,
for a touch of God.
To bask in his peace,
his love,
his Joy.
Having the children home for six weeks,
a busy husband,
a new baby to prepare for..
I just felt out of energy.
I needed to get into the
secret place
and ask God to firstly,
forgive me for being away,
trying to do 'life' in my own strength.
Then to ask for a fresh touch from Him.
His refreshing!
I put on some worship music
Kari Jobe,
and closed my eyes and prayed.
I had a wonderful vision.

I was like a little girl,
in a busy crowd of people.
I was being overwhelmed by them.
I clung onto my comfort blanket and just opened my mouth.
I screamed out,
At once, The crowds began to part,
forming an opening,
where I saw Jesus...
He ran straight toward me,
cradled me in his arms like a baby,
and carried on running,
pushing through the crowds to a field beyond them.
He carried me to an apple tree,
My tree.
He lay me against the trunk and picked an apple,
saying to me,
"Eat and be refreshed!"
Then I saw a servant running toward us,
holding a golden dish,
containing water.
"Drink this" 
said Jesus.
I drank.

Sometimes we need to remind ourselves 
of his faithfulness to us.
His willingness to 
to our aid 
when we feel overwhelmed.

He is faithful to meet all our
and strengthen us!

I love Him.

Wedding photography

This week I got a chance to be a wedding photographer.
I love photos,
but have never done something so big before..
I shared the responsibility with a friend,
and we positioned ourselves at varying angles though out the day.
The weather was glorious,
the sun shone,
people smiled,
it was a wonderful day!

Here are some of the photos.
