Every moment we’ve had together we’ve talked non-stop catching up on all of life, my throats actually starting to hurt not gunna lie Love you @helenaquist_ don’t leave us again! (if anyone is able to get their hands on her passport I’ll pay you to hide it, thanks)
Last nights New Year’s Eve was one of my favourites ever. Not sure if it’s cos I was so excited for 2017 to be over or if it’s cos I was surrounded with some of the best most amazing people that I’m so grateful for being a huge part of my year!! I’m gunna go with the latter ♀️ Expectant for an incredible 2018 with the love of my life @guvnab and all the other beautiful people in our lives that make every day so much sweeter
Happy birthday my beauty @keeksreid you’re one of my favourite human beings in the whole entire world, I am SO glad you were born!

Giving is a funny one. We know we aren’t meant to give to receive, but isn’t there a little bit of your brain that thinks/hopes when you give, God will see it and bless you directly back?
I’m so guilty of thinking like that. It’s not intentional.
But boyyyyy God knows me well and he must literally be in fits of laughter when he sees me thinking that.
One time, I bent down to give a homeless man a cupcake and my JEANS RIPPED the wholeeeeeeee way down the back. And then the other day I was at the station and there was a man who seemed to have been sleeping rough. He was talking loudly to himself about Bob Dylan and some of the ‘music legends’, and swaying around so everyone was staying as far away from him as possible. I was standing there holding my lovely warm mocha I just bought in Pret - and I was looking at this guy thinking man I bet he wants a hot drink. A kind word. Some warmth in his heart and in his belly. I wasn’t sure whether to approach him because he seemed kiiiiiinda unpredictable. but I did and he beamed from ear to ear, and I don’t think it was even about the hot drink, it was more that someone acknowledged him. I went and got another mocha (I really wanted a mocha LOL!!) walked down to get my train and someone literally RAN into me. My drink went all over me. The little bit I had left I decide to drink, and legit burnt my tongue off.
I remembered the time I gave the guy a cupcake too and thought ’God - what is going on here!!! This isn’t right surely?? Are you trying to make me not do nice things for people!????’ But I missed the point entirely.
Giving is literally nothing to do with you. It’s about them. The one GOD has chosen to bless THROUGH you. Maybe that guys day will be mildly better cos someone actually came up to him instead of treating him like he was crazy. But God’s intention was for THEIR day to be better. But I was caught up on how mine just got a bit worse.
Really, I just needed to be reminded that it’s not all about me. And clearly my jeans needed to rip and a drink poured down me at 8am for me to understand it
Don't forget to change up your old £ coins! I found 47 in random places in our house for real if you ever need money just sit next to @guvnab and wait for him to stand up. He drops change out of every pocket I swear!
Also if you're a Hillsonger then check your Kingdom Builders jar to swap the old coins
Praying that you all have an AMAZING day as you jump in to the new school year which holds countless opportunities for you to grab hold of! Be brave be you, be AWESOME! "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9
