Step Into Spring

Today as we approach the final days of April, and the the close of the Easter celebrations, we may feel ourselves falling into Spring with heightened expectations for a blossoming season with a glorious Summer to follow.

Mercy, Peace and Love: The New Year 2013

I hope that you will join me in thanking God for yet another year that He has been so gracious enough to give to us.
It is a joy and honour to live and to walk another year alongside the Lord, resting in the hope of our saviour.

I can assure you, that this year will bring the joy and happiness that we need and crave, as well as the pain and sadness that we do not welcome. However, the blessed in Christ; those who walk with Him, do not have to be troubled since the battles have been won, and the victories already owned.
