Hello September….

& hello to all you readers!

{especially if you’ve just recently discovered this Blessed Facebook page & website!}

I am blessed to live between the Lough & the Sea on the Ards Peninsula- an area of outstanding natural beauty in Northern Ireland. But what I love most about my home is who I share it with! I’m happily married to Rob. We have two teenagers- Caris & Ethan, & a bouncy Hungarian Viszla named Layla!

I work as a GP (Family Doctor) In my ‘spare time’ I read, collect quotes & write this blog ‘Blessed!’

Welcome to  Blessed

-a blog about the everyday goodness of  God on this journey we call life!


to be
refreshed by God’s grace
nourished by God’s goodness
sheltered by God’s promises

(Matthew 5:3-5 AMP)

You can read my story in ‘Life interrupted‘ & ‘Life as a fairytale

I believe that my story is just a tiny part of His story-God’s epic narrative we call life!

Beneath our cover, beyond the facade of our lives, we all have a story.

But, ‘We are not the author of the story – we are the characters’ (Kara Tippetts)

‘We are all part of God’s story & that’s what connects us’ (Dayspring)

Maybe you haven’t met God- the Author of life yet. Maybe you have more questions than answers.

Maybe today you need to start looking for God.

For He came to earth to seek & save the lost. (Luke 19:10)

Maybe you need to discover the story of life & get to know the Author.

‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’
(John 3:16)

I believe we are:

Chosen & called

Beloved & blessed

Redeemed & restored

Flawed but forgiven

Found & treasured

In Christ!
