Step out of the Nest

2019.05.Step out of the nest.2

Recently while at the redwood forest, the Melbourne sisters discovered a collection of branches that was arranged very much like a nest – the only difference being that it was on the ground rather than in the tree. We climbed in, sat there and then took some photos. It was as I was going away that it dawned in me that there were some nests in my life that Jesus is challenging me to step out of.

Live Like a Redwood

2019.04.Live Like a Redwood.2

Recently, the Melbourne sisters went on Mystery Tour #2. We ended up at a redwood forest near Warburton, about one hour from Melbourne. These trees are really, really tall, with some reaching a height of around 55 metres, and to walk among the almost 1,500 90-year-old redwoods is an awe-inspiring experience. Yet incredibly, these trees are mere babies in the redwood world, given that their life span can be up to 1800 years, and their height could reach around 100 metres.

Why sisters should swim.....

why sisters should swim 160x160Once, I was swimming at the local pool, meandering up and down the slow lane doing breast-stroke. Now I am definitely no Leisel Jones, and I certainly won’t be breaking world records any time soon (or any time in the future), but as I became aware of other people swimming past me, going much harder and faster, I began to see my journey up and down the slow lane as a parable for my life as an MGL sister. Here’s why (hmmm at this point it would be helpful to know that the three pillars of our MGL Life are Prayer, Sisterhood and Mission)……
