Slow down mummy-R.Knight

Slow down mummy, there is no need to rush,
slow down mummy, what is all the fuss?
Slow down mummy, make yourself a cup tea.
Slow down mummy, come and spend some time with me.

Slow down mummy, let's put our boots on and go out for a walk,
let's kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
Slow down mummy, you look ever so tired,
come sit and snuggle under the duvet and rest with me a while.

Slow down mummy, those dirty dishes can wait,
slow down mummy, let's have some fun, let's bake a cake!
Slow down mummy I know you work a lot,
but sometimes mummy, its nice when you just stop.

Sit with us a minute,
& listen to our day,
spend a cherished moment,
because our childhood is not here to stay!

To those of you who read how encouraged I was yesterday, I woke to find that my 'little old poem' has spread all over the Internet, currently at 112 thousand likes and rising! I also found that my poem is being shared all over the world via Pinterest and blogs and sites where people are sharing it. Yesterday I was thinking that my 'voice' did not count for much, today I see that actually God can use your small offerings and passions and multiply them greatly! Just like the boy that offered his 2 fish and loaves of bread.... Be encouraged to carry on doing what you love, it is having an effect on someone, somewhere...even if you are not aware if it ;) thankyou all do much for liking this page. Be the best of you and dream big!! ♥

I was having a down day-Ever get those? Wondering what my 'voice' counts for? Does anything I do have an effect or make a difference? I was asking God what is it that I am passionate about and enjoy doing? Seeking purpose and passion....He 
answered in an unexpected way. A little poem I wrote last year, submitted to a book, has been shared over facebook..My friends were asking me if it was my poem that people were enjoying and sharing. I was amazed at the likes and comments. reading through the comments, my heart was blessed that my little words have touched parents and inspired them to cherish each moment with their children. God...Thank-you, I have been encouraged. ♥

Alert people to His LOVE.

I heard a great inspirational talk the other day, which involved a mental picture, much like the photo here. A beautiful sunrise, and a shed, with one window. Inside the shed it was dark and dirty and the window was so dirty the people within the shed could not see the spectacular view outside. Those that were 'aware, alert, and conscious' of the spectacular sunrise outside had the opportunity to alert those within the darkened shed. They had 2 ways of doing this, telling those within about what they had seen and experienced outside, or by cleaning the window inside and letting those within the shed see for themselves a glimpse of the light outside. My purpose, passion and life goal is to alert others to the existence of Gods light, his love, His beauty, and I am determined to shine and let a little light into others by living a life of love and beauty that reflects my heavenly Fathers love. As a Christian I have seen it done in religious, stale way, and I have also seen God radiate out of people who truley know Him and his universal love to all of mankind. ♥

The LORD is good to all,
And His mercies are over all His works (Psalm 145:9).

The eyes of all look to Thee, And Thou dost give them their food in due time.
Thou dost open Thy hand, And dost satisfy the desire of every living thing (15-16).

Release the boat from the safety of the harbour.

I was talking to God this morning. I have recently moved home, away from everything familiar to myself and my family for the last 8 years. 
This has been tough in many ways, emotionally, physically and also spiritually.
So much has been changing for myself and my family, but not just externally. I have been spiritually challenged in a very big way also.
This has been daunting, challenging and exciting. 
So my chat with God went something like this:

I need the next branch to hold onto, the next stone to step on. The next plank to balance on and move me forward. You say that a person without vision will perish and I feel the real need to know my next move in regard to my spirituality, my walk with you and the responsibility of bringing up a family in spiritual truths. I have just 
 moved to london, I have little desire to return to certain traditional habits,  I wish to take hold of Your spiritual freedom, truth and life and to have fellowship with others who have similar vision.
Talk to me.

Seek, search, and you shall find, the old is gone, the new has come. All that is not built on the foundation of my rock will be pulled away, stripped back and will not stand. So don't hook up with anything that is not built on my rock. Trust the barometer of your heart. Listen to it. Heed to it. All is well, just go with the natural flow. Everything you need to follow the path I have set, is there waiting for you. Keep your eyes on me. In time, it will come. Keep searching. Write down your passions and dreams and desires, keep them in check with me. Don't be distracted by what you think you should be doing, only do what you see me smiling upon.
 You feel so small and fragile in my hands but you have My breath in your lungs, My vision in your eyes, My heart  beating within your chest. You gave me your life and you desire to live the way I designed you to, so do not worry! 
I have you. 
 Eternity holds you, it is now, not then, heaven is in you and around you in this life. You know this in part, but KNOW it more!
 It will help you to shift mountains. 
Do things that you never imagined possible!
 Grasp the fact that all you need to accomplish the things within your heart are right there waiting for you. 
But you must try, you must train, work, push toward it. Aim and strive and you will arrive. 
My hand of blessing is with you but you need to walk towards the things I placed within you. 
They will not fall into your lap from me. You see I am in you, and you are perfectly able to create and move and change things. For you are made in my image. 
Years ago you did not grasp this, you were a child and I helped you but as you grow spiritually you will become strong enough to do things with the knowledge that I live within you.

You will grow spiritually and realise that everything is within your grasp and within your ability to accomplish those things that I have placed within your heart. 
You must believe this in order to receive it. Push yourself out of the comfort if the harbour and come for an adventure with me... 
Dare to let go of the things you have held onto most of your life. They have helped to get you this far, but they can not take you any further. You need to cut the rope to release the boat. This will be easy if you are convinced that I am the one calling you away. Come away with me. Dare to trust the voice within.
What is God perhaps calling you to do?
Do you trust that He has every provision to succeed?
If God is for you, then who can stand against you?
Let me know... 

When Jehovah comes to earth to reign among his people in the millennial age, “No longer shall the sun be your light by day, nor the brightness of the moon your illumination at night: Jehovah will be your everlasting Light and your God your radiant glory. Your sun shall set no more, nor your moon wane: to you Jehovah shall be an endless Light when your days of mourning are fulfilled” (Isaiah 60:19–20). While Israel’s God will then serve as the greater Light, he also appoints his servant as a light to prepare the way before him: “I have created you and appointed you to be a covenant for the people, a light to the nations, to open eyes that are blind” (Isaiah 42:6–7).
