March Plants

You know what brings me joy? Plants. You know what might possibly bring you joy? Plants. I thought we’d do something a bit different from my normal writing and look at a bunch of plant photos I took this month. It’s never a bad thing to be reminded of the beautiful, simple things that God […]

Write in Childhood

I love reflecting on childhood. I love stories of childhood and the way they impact us all. I love how, even though childhoods contain both good and bad, we can all look back and reminisce on what once was. While I love romance and adventure and the beautiful every day of adulthood, I love novels […]

Change / Poem

I wrote this poem during a recent quiet time with God. Usually when I write creatively about Jesus I won’t post it on my blog because it’s not neat, it’s just words that aren’t edited or properly ordered. But today I thought I may as well. We’re all human, and things get a little messy […]

A Dive into Independence

Time is a funny thing. On one hand, it feels like I’ve been ‘moved out’ forever. It’s very normal, even though it’s only been two weeks. While my time has been up and down (down being knocking my bottle of olive oil on the floor and spending twenty minutes trying to make the floor not-slippery) […]

the other side of myself

I wonder what my day would have looked like had I still been living at home. The tea would taste the same, probably. My stress over the start of this trimester at uni would be the same, probably. The knowledge that I have friends scattered in different directions is the same, most definitely. I’ve moved, […]

Something Will Happen

I find it bizarre to think about what you’re doing now, then think back to one year ago or five. Would that person have been able to do what you’re doing today? I’m in the processing of moving out of my parents’ house, and I don’t think even the Sarah of six months ago would’ve […]

Frustration Celebration

I was driving today. For about twenty minutes there was a long line of cars – me, in the thick of it – stuck in the overtaking lane. The left lane wasn’t as full, but contained some of the slowest drivers known to man. I debated hopping over to the left lane numerous times, but […]

Rain, Rain

I have a cup of tea, I can hear the rain, and I love days like these. There is something beautiful about a warm, sunny day. When you open all the windows and lie on the grass and drink cold water with lemon slices. But there is always a part of me yearning for that […]

Swimming Lessons

Do you remember when you were young and you would go swimming? Your parents might have sat beside the pool keeping an eye on you, they might have been swimming beside you. When you’re learning to swim, there comes a point when you have to let go of your parent or teacher, let go of […]

2020 Goals

As I’ve said before, I don’t particularly like the term ‘resolutions’. What I do like is having goals, and putting them into smaller goals so you don’t feel overwhelmed. I don’t see any problem in having vision of what you want your life to be like, but I do also want to leave room for […]
