A cute leather bag on Colle table stones.
That's it for today's row. Please let me know if you have a hobby you would like me to shoot. I love showcasing interesting people and their stuff.

Today's #title card is a little shameless self promotion. The row is a collection of smooth stones. Please check out my Instagram profile for the whole row.

Collections are an interesting thing. The items in the collection don't need to make sense to anyone other than the collector. I had the pleasure or photographing this lovely collection of smooth stones.

Please check out my profile for the whole row. Cheers.

Are you looking to the head crusher?

In 1 Samuel 17-18 we see the rise of young David. These two chapters also include David’s encounter with the Philistine giant, Goliath. Contrary to popular belief, the narrative of David & Goliath is not about us facing & defeating our giants, like many sermons & books would lead us to believe. No, instead, it’s all about God’s holiness.

When Goliath enters the picture he is making a mockery of God and his people. Given his enormous stature, he knows he holds the advantage against anyone who would face him in battle. He felt that he & his people were assured victory. Even the narrative tells us the people of Israel were afraid.

But, when David, who was only checking in on his brothers, hears of this nonsense he has a response opposite the rest of Israel. He is appalled by this mockery of his God and is ready to take on this giant. He knew the God he and his people served, and knew that God was not to be mocked; so, he stood up for his name. In response, God gave him the victory in battle, becoming the original head crusher.

As I read this narrative, I cannot help but think about the present day. The name of God & his church is under constant attack, even from within. What are we going to do about that? Are we willing to stand up for God, his church, and his truth?

Finally, I want you to consider the greater David, Jesus Christ, who crushed sin & death, just like David did to Goliath. Goliath is a picture of sin, and David a picture of Christ. Jesus too is a head crusher, crushing the head of the serpent. That’s the gospel!

How do David & Christ’s victories strengthen your faith?

Just as river water polishes stones, every little wave and every ripple makes an impact, no matter how minute. And eventually you have a smooth stone. Don't ever give up. Keep going! It all adds up. ❤️ #rivers #smoothstones #waves🌊 #ripples #impact #minute #dontevergiveup #keepgoing💪 #italladdsup

A sacred circle gathering in my studio of smooth stones, tumbled crystals, tea lights, oil pastels and a spiral sea shell at its centre (hello shape of a ram’s horns). Encircled by Hydrangea petals. Inspired by today’s vibe. With the New Moon exact this coming Monday in the sign of Aries, its energies are likely showing up as “Just fricken do it!” in a particular area of your life. Be it as a renewed routine for your health and/or heart, a vision for your vocation or an idea for your social life. Bare in mind, Aries being quite the focused and strong sign, the more you think “I can’t!” the more its energies will show up via frustration and stubbornness. The more you lean in to “Yes I can!” the more you activate a positive force field that is your ever-present authentic power. 💃🏻🌒🙌🏼 NEXT MOON CIRCLE with me: Monday 16 April.
MORNING: 9:30-11am.
EVENING: 7-8:30pm.
Choose your time.
MOON FOCUS: New Moon in Aries 🔥🌒🐏 WHERE: Newport on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. DM me for details + to book your cushion spot.
