What I'm loving Wednesday

I’m loving hanging out with my family in beautiful Devon.






I’m loving visiting castles...


I used to visit Castle Drogo all the time as a child but I haven’t been there for about fifteen years. It was fun to re-visit it as an adult and see how much I remembered!





I especially wanted to visit this play-house as I always used to look out for it when I was young. It seemed smaller than I remembered!

I’m not loving the riots that are going on all over the country.

I just can’t quite get my head around how this can happen. It made me cry to see how shocked and upset the people were who have lost their businesses and livelihoods. I was trying to think of something to say about it, but instead I think I’ll quote my friend who puts it much more eloquently than I could…
“…I've seen loads of people pointing to this verse in the wake of all that is happening - Jeremiah 29:7 "Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." I think that this is our answer. The government can bring in the army, can bring in as many Police officers as it likes but unless there is a shift in attitude there is going to be hostility for a long time. It is God who can change people's hearts. I love this verse in Ezekial 36 "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." That is such a cool picture. I would encourage any Christians reading this to pray seriously for the riots and for the roots of it to be dealt with.”

  3. The riots are terrifying. I totally agree with you about praying for the UK - we have turned our back on God, but maybe through all this tragedy people will cry out to God. I hope so. There is no sense in all this violence - but I guess those who are rioting need prayer as much as the victims of it. Nothing is too big for God.

  4. I'm loving your pictures! So beautiful.

    I like what Rachael said. I agree that our nations have turned their back on God. It means we need to pray even harder.

  6. Your home is in so many people's thoughts and prayers. What a strange thing it must be when it's your own country. God bless y'al!
