I love Lavender Wallpapers

The July 2015 wallpaper has arrived! Plus a bonus design featuring one of my favourite Bible verses. Are you having a hard time lately? A bad day, month or even year? Sometimes we get so caught up in our worldly problems we forget the bigger picture. I’m not saying life’s…

This is seriously one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. Right up there with parenting…. well not really. Parenting is far easier. But it does take a whole lot of concentrating and that’s something that can be difficult with a home full of little people. While I sit…
