Heaven on Earth would look like a reconciled nation, a reconciled world. Repost from @riverviewfdn using @RepostRegramApp - On #nationalsorryday we acknowledge and recognise the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children forcibly removed from their families. Today we not only say sorry, but take the opportunity to reflect and acknowledge the pain and suffering that occurred and continues to occur. Most of all we take time to pray for healing and comfort to all first nations people, and for mutual respect and reconciliation for all people of Australia.

Nathaniel David- happy birthday you sweet boy. You mean the world to me, and even when you are sassing me, I love you the mostest. You are funny, kind, wicked intelligent, musical, the life of the party and make every day a little brighter for your Iggy. So grateful for your life. 4 never looked so adorable 💕
✨A P R I L ✨ You were all about celebrating: big birthdays, finding love, marriage, resurrection, peace and quality time. And as Nathaniel said on April 8: cake. I love this Life.
The sweet @miobecker surprised us all and got married today. Such a wonderful night to celebrate love 💕
We were so honoured to witness our dear Mer marry her love on the most beautiful, rainy day. All the feels. Here’s to a hundred more years of laughter in the storm, vowing to stick with each other, good food, family and friends 🥂 we love you guys! #M&S
A couple years ago, someone asked the two of us “ If you weren’t sisters, would you have been friends?”. We both looked at each other and laughed, and together said ‘No’.

✨ M A R C H ✨ You brought some birthday surprises and a little bit of motivation my way. You went a bit too quick for my liking, teaching me a little lesson on the way: take steps, even if they are baby ones.
✨ F E B R U A R Y ✨ You were a bit of a mixed bag. Some days filled with pure joy and excitement, others that were so mundane I can’t really even remember them and then a kick in the shins. You did remind me of a few things that I needed reminding of: 1. love is in the air, so breathe deeply 2. we can loose earthly things but it doesn’t change heaven 3. conflict done well is pure relational growth 4. it is a privilege to serve this city 5. our little friendship network is the bomb diggity 6. hunting down the best sweet and sour pork still continues to be fun 7. family makes my world go round
✨ J A N U A R Y ✨ You began with a little bit of sparkle and a whole lot of laughter, grounded us in the middle with deep conversations, friendships returned, good food, bad hair days, birthdays, pool hangs and so much love. And ended with pushing us toward a possible new opportunity. All while doing your start of a new year thing and reminding us to be grateful for 7 glorious years of marriage and health and to just try again and again, because that is what matters. Trying, getting up when you fall, making up when you fight, laughing through tears, keeping your relationships sacred, FaceTime on favourites and always always have sparklers in hand- because you never know when you might need to celebrate. Happy new year fam!
