This is a photo of some fabulous gals that I have the privilege of doing life with. We had a fun night of cocktails for my birthday, was a quality night full of friends from everywhere in the world, but call home London (for now), in this photo alone there is a Brit, Australian, South African, Colombian and me the kiwi of course.
I'm having a constant realisation about just how cool my friends are here in London. I am truly blessed to be around a bunch of fun, amazing people, who thirst after God's heart and truth and who passionately love people.
Being around them stretches and grows me and challenges me into new depths of life and love and relationships. The conversation, the motives and the heart of the people I'm surrounded with is world class. I've never been around such a massive bunch of people who are just so connected to a sense of purpose for life. The sheer quantity of people amaze me. Yeah, I've always been a part of a group with such passion and purpose, but never quite this many. I'm constantly just in awe of all that God is doing here.
This environment is amazing, who wouldn't want to be a part of it?
I'm realising more and more that life isn't necessarily about what you are doing, but the people and the heart that you're connected with. Being connected to the right people and place will bring about incredible fruit and send you in a direction that will be a blessing in this world. It is the togetherness that will bring about change, freedom and love to a hurting humanity.
God had a cool plan when he dreamed up just how powerful and effective the church can be in this world. We are all in this together.
Also in my birthday weekend, I enjoyed my last coffee for the rest of the month. Ouch it's hurting, and I have had a caffeine headache for 4 days now.
At my cocktail party a candle decided to spill out of its seams. It was an interesting shape at the end of the night. Not much point in me telling or showing you, except I think it was kinda cool.
So that's the end of this little blog. Just thought I should share something from my world since it's been so long.
Basically, I'm just loving London friends (notice I didn't say London?), loving being a part of Hillsong and I really, really like my house.
That is all.
