Heyyy! Come join lovely Lydia, our grand daughter, as she guides us around the beautiful and fun things at the Clermont country Show. There’s even pig racing and fireworks, too!
Lydia, at 18 months, already knows that “where my heart is …that’s my home” and her heart is with her Mum and Dad and her family, in God’s loving care.
Children like Lydia, remind us to “take time to smell the roses” and treasure the joys of living this life of adventure that God has given us.
After all …to a child like Lydia …love is spelt quality T-I-M-E.
So, let’s take time to relax and enjoy these magnificent prize winning roses.
Our talented niece, Wick is a second cousin to Lydia, and here is her 1st and 2nd prize artworks. Notice how she has a sparkling eye for detail.
Lydia knows “should you encounter a problem along your way …change your direction, but not your destination”.
As you can guess, Lydia is a ball of energy with plenty of get up and go! So, here’s her Dad, Rob, showing her how “what you lose on the swings you can always pick up on the roundabout of life.”
Ahhh yes …Lydia is a natural …and naturally …she loves all natural things. So, for her doing some cross-country riding on a real natural Shetland pony is so much fun, too!
After a cross-country ride on a Shetland Pony, Lydia can hardly wait to watch her next fun favourite .act at the Show..the piglets race!
Of course life is not all fun, beer and skittles. Lydia knows that there are some first time challenges …that even though we might be a little bit frightened or awestruck …we face the fear …and the fear just disappears!
…and isn’t that just so true of the ups and downs of the ferris wheel of the cycle of life?
For every low there is the sublime thrill of rising to achieve the natural highs in life.
When we apply the 7 Laws of Success we can enjoy the real joy of the excitement of fireworks in our life!
Meantime …keep pumpin’!
