Colour, Colour, Colour

I love colour. It’s come into Spring now and the world is singing and I relish it. 

Flowers in My Hair

My daughter picked some wildflowers on the grass and gave them to me. I put them in my hair.

Purple Rain

I flew from Auckland to my hometown Brisbane recently. The fragrance of the air hit me. It surprised me. It smelt like home. Blue-Purple jacarandas spotted the streets, carpeting the ground in colour. The air was warm with a weight like a hug.  After being away for a while, the fragrance of the earth and air was familiar and comforting.

A Beach Doesn’t Have to Be Golden to Be Beautiful

The five figures are my tribe. A lot of people ask me how I’ve coped with moving around so much as a family, and it really does feel like I have my tribe and so I’m okay, no matter where I am. This was taken at Karekare Beach on the west coast of the North Island.  We saw seals while we were here!

    Beautiful, Kelly… God has blessed us with so much colourful beauty surrounding us, and it must warm His Father’s heart when His children pause, and notice, and thank Him …
