105/365: Flowers

105/365:  Flowers — Flowers are beautiful. I love them. We always have a vase of flowers at home. I don’t really have a particular favourite flower as they are all very pretty. I like roses, especially the pink ones. Daises because they remind me of my brother and the times we used to sing Daisy Daisy. I love sunflowers because they remind me of summer and all the happy memories that summer brings. Flowers brighten up so many places. A world without flowers would be dull and colourless.

103/365: Best

image

103/365: Best — Growing up we are taught to always be the best, to always do our best and to accept nothing but the best. But what is the best? Being good at everything? Always putting a hundred percent effort into everything we do? Getting everything right first time? I think telling children to do their best and telling them to be the best could cause more damage  than good. Children get things wrong and that should be okay. I got loads of things wrong when I was younger and that is how I learnt. I once washed my hair with soap in the school toilets. I was six or seven years old. I was trying my best! I did not get into trouble but I did get a few funny looks….. My teacher rinsed my hair, stuck my head under the dryer and took me back to class. That is how I learned the difference between shampoo and soap. I believe telling children to accept nothing but the best builds them up for a fall. People make mistakes and they can disappoint and hurt us. That does not mean they are unlovable or bad people. They are human.

102/365: Silence — Sometimes silence is necessary. Sometimes you need silence to evaluate, to think or simply to breathe. I love the occasional bout of silence. I find just sitting in silence relaxing. It is a chance for me to consider new ideas. Everyone needs some silence in their everyday living. I don’t think it is possible to live without silence.

99/365: Dance

tumblr_static_lrgword_dance99/365: Dance — Everyone needs to relax, put on some lively music and have a little dance around the room every once in a while. I love doing this. Not only does it put me in a good mood but bouncing around means exercising. And exercise is never a bad thing.

98/365: Bed — I adore my bed! I like having the space to spread out or to curl up. My bed has been there through my trials and tears. I love nothing more than getting into bed after a long, tiring day and falling sleep.

97/365: Scared

image

97/365: Scared — We all get scared. Scared of things going wrong, scared we will mess up. I have a long list of things I am scared of; going to the doctors and dentist, heights, spiders, driving on the motorway. I do not even know why I am scared of these things. I believe that things can only harm us if we let then. When we are scared of things we give them power. The power to hurt us, to frighten us, to damage us. I wish I had realised that earlier.

84/365: Sin

sin

84/365: Sin — As a Christian I realise I am full of sin. I sin all the time which means I fall short of God’s glory. I fail God daily because of my sin, from the little white lies to the hurtful words I say to those around me. Whilst I am living on this Earth I will always be a sinner. I will always mess up and get things wrong. I am  thankful that Jesus died for my sin. The only reason that Heaven is possible for me is Jesus. His death has brought me new life.
