The Wheelie Case

Have you ever been distressed because you have nothing to wear!  You know, one of those days when nothing fits, you don't feel pretty and you would rather cancel the day and go back to bed than get dressed.  Well I have those days. Now I know our clothes don't define us and our identity and beauty should not stem from what we wear, but having something nice to wear does help doesn't it?  So, I have come up with a solution to minimise those bad days.  My solution is "The Wheelie Case"!  This morning I sorted out my clothes and popped the following clothes into a wheelie case:

  1. All the clothes that are too small for me that I am hoping to fit into again one day.  These clothes just make me feel fat and depressed.  They stare at me from my drawers telling me that I can't fit into them anymore so now I am fat.  Lying clothes simply have to go - no more lies, I am not fat.
  2. All the clothes that are too big for me that make me feel thinner but make me look shabby and poor, like I can't afford clothes that fit.  These clothes lie too!  I can afford clothes that fit because God is my provider and I don't have to walk around looking shabby.
  3. All the clothes that I have been holding onto just in case I want to wear them one day. I have never worn these clothes but they just sit there taking up space for no reason.
  4. The final batch of clothes didn't make it into the wheelie case, they landed in the bin.  These clothes had holes in or stains or little defects.... why did I keep them?  
Are you wondering what I am going to do with the wheelie case?  Well, tonight is our weekly Girl's Night and I am going to let one of the women take the wheelie case home for a week and take whatever clothes they would like.  Once they have sorted out their clothing they will add some items to the wheelie case and pass it onto one of the other girls for a week and so each week one of us get to change our wardrobe for FREE!   It's so exciting, I can't wait to see what ends up in the case when it's my turn to get it again.  

Why don't you start a Girl's Night, all the notes are availalbe here and why not start your own wheelie case and pass it around.  I would love to hear your thoughts and wardrobe tips. How do you beat the wardrobe blues?

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Conference Feedback

We had a beautiful day together on 8th September, thank you so much to you all for your incredible support and prayers. Feedback and testimonies have already started flooding in, have a read of some of them here . Also, keep an eye on our YouTube page as we update it with the speakers messages and conference highlight videos.

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
