Things I'm Loving

By PaisleyJade - Friday, August 26, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

I'm loving this Russian doll money box that I found while on our big trip down to meet the Kiwi Mummy Bloggers last weekend...

Loving whipping up some fresh lemon cupcakes with lemon curd hidden inside, and a dash of lemon syrup on the side...

Loving spending two amazing days away with my soul mate at Manifest Presence Conference.  We haven't actually been away to a conference together since before we had kids (nearly 13 years!!)! A massive thanks to my parents and Symon's parents for their help with our children while we were away!!

While at the conference, loving the worship, hearing the amazing wisdom from speakers like Danny Silk, Bill Johnson and Kim Walker, seeing multitudes of people healed from things like Bell's palsy, metal rods and plates disappear etc. as we all prayed for those around us.  Woohoo, God is awesome!!

Loved hanging out with special friends... who also shouted us Star Bucks Coffees (cause our little town of Whangarei ain't that trendy yet).

Here's how you can join in....

    And being healed from Bells Palsy? Awesome! I've been suffering from Bells Palsy on the left side of my face since 2005 so I'm always pleased to hear stories of God's healing in this area. I'm still waiting & believing for it! :)

    We heard Bill Johnson speak a little over 4 years ago. Amazing. In fact, it even gives me goose bumps to write about it.
