The time is almost here! I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner – the year has certainly flown. I want to thank you all for your readership of The Good Girls Guide this year – some new and exciting things are planned for 2013 FOR SURE!
May you and your family have a truly blessed and magical Christmas next Tuesday – I pray God fills your day with joy and love, and Santa fills the stockings 🙂
Phillipians 2 vs 1-2: “Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2 Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.”

Are there rules to live by? Rules that apply to everyone in the world? Well probably not, but it might be good to start with what God has asked of, commanded of and promised us – Love God, Love Your Neighbors… I reckon those are some good words of advice that everyone in the world could and should live by.
Found this on the weekend and thought I’d share with you – some good advice on life’s little ‘house rules’, being kind to dancing crazy and being silly! Have a super Monday xxx

Days come when things don’t go right, stuff gets us down, people make us upset, we disappoint ourselves… and the food burns in the oven. Sometimes we have days like that, and its just means we need to draw just a little deeper within ourselves and find the strength to move forward and above.
The human spirit is really amazing, and I think we doubt or don’t expect to find the amazing strength we have within us. I read a book recently about a Jewish man who had escaped from Treblinka during World War 2. The daily atrocities he was faced with are something we cannot even comprehend – but somehow (somewhere) he took each day as something to overcome and his incredible strength and hope for a real future kept him going.
I was rather humbled when I read this account, and it made my little troubles seem so incredibly insignificant; how could I even complain about a bad day when terrible days happen every day around the world to so many people? Am I unable to gather the strength to get over a bad day when others are drawing incredible momentum to escape from atrocities?
The good thing in ALL of this, is that God is the beacon of strength and light in each one of us. I firmly believe that He is the one that gives us the strength to get us through tough times – even tiny insignificant bad days. Today’s post was drawn out of me having a ‘bad day’, but has grown into a realisation in myself that our strength is worth fighting for, and ALWAYS worth asking God for.

Happy Monday! Today I’ve been listening to Mark Driscoll’s talk on Mary and Martha from Luke – and what an insight it is to the character and personalities of people in Christ; some are doers, some are be-ers…of you know what I mean! It’s all how we are wired – and it’s learning to have grace in that, being the person God created you to be.
It’s so important to gain insight from the word like this – and applying it to our own lives in a way that increases our faith and reliance on God. Also, it was a welcome change to listening to the radio in the traffic – really filling my mind with worthy things 🙂 So, in the week leading up to Easter – I pray you would all fill your minds with the things and character of God, and remember that each of us are individuals and he has plans for each one of us 🙂

I feel so so blessed at the moment, and just feel that I need to thank God for all that he’s put in my life, especially that my husband and I are celebrating one year of marriage on Sunday – wow! Time has just flown…
Today I’ve put together a Moodboard of Praise – just celebrating God’s goodness in my life and as a reminder to myself and to all of us that praise and thanks needs to be a daily part of our lives! Thanks Lord for all you’ve done in my life – I just hope that I can be a light, a rainbow, a mouthpiece of your goodness to others. WOOHOO! And I will worship you…
