Still standing and fighting a battle

On a Wednesday morning three years ago was just a typical morning of getting up and getting the kids up and sorted for school. I remembered thinking that morning of having to go into my son's school for him to pick his GCSE subjects but I never made it that day. That morning while the children were getting ready for school I sat in my bedroom writing letters for my husband and my four children telling them how much I loved them and for my husband to take good care of my babies and that I was sorry that I just couldn't go on anymore. The next thing I remember was two police men walking towards me and then asking me was I Ann-Marie and me saying yes and them asking me to go with them. Now the funny thing is that I'm absolutely terrified of water but I'd managed to get on a......
Slipping and sliding

So this morning bout 7.30am I was going out the road with bouncer (my dog) as I do every morning. Couldn't get over how cold it was this morning but I thought to myself least there's no frost. So walked down the drive and was walking along our wee road when suddenly I started to slide because in actual fact it had been freezing. So there I was slipping and sliding down the road scared of falling and with nothing that I could hold on to. But it got me thinking about the time's in our own lives when we start to slip and slid in our Christian walk that we have a heavenly father who will hold us up and will not let us fall. He is faithful. When any of God's children fall he will pick them. He will never forsake us and he will hold us with his mighty right hand. He knows what......
Hearing and listening to the voices
ANN-MARIE FAULKNER

Voices, voices, voices lots of voices. All talking at the same time inside of my head. I'm hearing lots of voices sometimes they are shoutong, sometimes they are whispering but do I actually listen to what they are saying. Yes most of the time I do BUT am I goin to continue listening to the lies the enemy is saying to me or am I goin to start listening to Gods voice and what he wants to say to me. Again it all comes down to making a choice.                     2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. So whatever old lies that we believed about ourselves come back saying that we are  stupid, worthless, flawed, incapable, inadequate. We have......

How are you? Them famous three words that we ask so often. I m fine is always my answer like so many people. Deep down you always know if a person is fine or not. So really are you fine Well today I jus want to scream at the world & say no I am far from fine. Today I jus want somebody to say everything is goin to be okay. Today I ve been so sick I m not sure if I m actually Ill or if it s down to anxiety and stress. I keep asking myself what is that running from my eyes but then I realise that the tears are sneaking down the side of my face. I m so done with this constant feeling of feeling trapped. I m so tired of not being strong. I m so tired of saying no. I m so tired today of everything. I honestly jus don t know how much more I can take.  My wee bestie called today and honestly......
Who am i

Who am 1? Well now that's is the question. If you were 2 ask me who I was I'd say I'm a mum to 4 children, a wife & jus a stay at home mum. Now if I'm 2 ask myself the same question well it's a completely different answer. Now I can't believe I'm actually goin 2 write these things but God has really been speaking 2 me lately. So here it goes. Life was tough growing up I always felt that I was never wanted as a child, never felt loved, was never told I was loved, never felt a sense of belonging. Then at the age of 8 a close family friend started to show me attention & of course at that age I knew nothing different & this continue until I was about 14-15 by which stage I knew wot was happening but I was so scared of nobody believing me. Also my father......
Three things ive learned about god as ive got older.

Well I been thinking a lot about this over the past few days & have questioned myself have I learned anything especially as I feel so far away from him at this time. Who am I to write bout what I've learned but been thinking about it much this past half hour so hear it goes. First thing I've learned is that I have a father who loves me. A heavenly father that loves me in spite of everything I have done. A father who will never ever hurt me or leave the way my earthly father done...It's say in Deut 31:6 that we are not to be afraid as our father goes with us & that he will never leave us nor forsake us. It's jus knowing that our heavenly father is always by out side even when we don't feel him. Secondly Jeremiah 29:11 says For I know the plans that I have for......

Well last nite it was my 3 oldest kids school prize giving evening. A nite that my 17yr old son received his gcse certificates also my 15yr old son & 13yr old daughter also received numerous awards. A nite that I should have been bursting with pride...but instead all I could think of was they don't need me anymore...thinking of how I jus want 2 lie down & never wake up again but at the same time I had made a promise that I would b there for someone on Mon so I won't break that promise. Maybe that's God's way of keeping me safe or maybe not? Today it's my rainbow baby's birthday. My baby girl is 11yrs old...a day I should b celebrating but I can't. Today I jus want 2 curl up & die. I hear u all saying u r blessed with 4 children stop whining &......
