I cant imagine this universe without being able to see Gods beauty all around me. Theres nothing more beautiful than Gods creation. Its as much a part of me as my Saviour himself. Everything he created was to His will and glory, and nothing was made by accident.

Welcome, Thank you and Updates

I realised recently that I hadn’t updated my About Chrissy page for at least three years. I think it’s time to add and change where necessary.

I have also neglected to welcome new followers over the past few months to which I will do now.

Welcome all new followers. You are much appreciated and I will attempt to visit your sites very soon. Long time followers…Thanks for hanging around.

Water, water, everywhere and a whole lot more coming.

As you can see, it’s extremely wet around here. This is the lowest part of the community where we live. We live on the hill side and should be safe from rising waters at least for now.
Who would have thought a view of bush-land would become a water front.
We’re so glad we decided not to buy this house.
We didn’t try and drive down this lane and this is after the flood receded. It’s expected to rise again tonight.
In town the water has subsided a little after the tide went out but the water levels are still claiming the roads and foreshores. Many shops and restaurants had sandbags everywhere.
The building on the right is a maritime museum and the pylons and wharf are also well under water.

We are in a safe place for now with our house situated on higher ground than many others. Some towns north and south of us are under water. Hundreds of people have been left homeless. See some of the latest news updates here:

Hope in the City

DELIVERED  – A Peculiar People Collaboration

Amongst the group of writers I can claim to have written just one chapter but yes, I wrote Chapter four.

320_4654160An immigrant and her young daughter, struggling to reach their dream地 special needs child, searching for hope地 newly released ex-con, seeking forgiveness. They have one thing in commontheyre about to be touched by God in a way they never imagined. All through a simple postcard. Brought up in a strict Muslim home in London, Sulafa has recently experienced the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Now, despite fear of discovery and its consequences, she knows she has to spread the good news. In an act of bravery, she sends out postcards with a single message: Let me pray for you. Her simple request impacts lives and brings hope in the midst of hopelessness.

The second of many anticipated books from Peculiar People, Delivered is a collection of short stories that intertwine to deliver a single message. It is the work of twenty-five authors with one united voice, proclaiming the power of God to transform lives and His ability to do the miraculous in the most ordinary of circumstances.

Amongst the group of writers I can claim to have written just one chapter but yes, I wrote Chapter four.

Chapter Four

Hope in the City – by Chrissy Siggee

Seventeen year old Sarah stepped down from the train and looked around. Haunted eyes stared out from a gaunt face. She looked around to gather her bearings. Commuters pushed and shoved their way past, almost causing her to stumble under the heaviness of her backpack. The warped wheels of her worn suitcase flip flopped behind her as she followed the crowd. Shed come to Sydney for a new life. No one here knew of her former years, which she wanted to forget…

Building Blocks

I’ll be doing less writing in January while I master the new WordPress post system using blocks.

However, I will re-post previously short fictional stories for those who missed a few reads. I will also try and read other peoples posts a few times a week and respond to comments.

Short stories will be archived in Children’s Corner Short Fiction and Younger Teens on Riverside Peace.

Enjoy your January reading.

Death of Publisher

Thank you to the followers that notified me that the three links to my book ordering pages aren’t working. I checked yesterday and today and finally sent emails to my contact only to receive a message back that Skoobebooks is no longer trading due to the sad death of Keith Plunkett, the man who has been my biggest supporter since 2012.

I sent emails to two separate email addresses and only received the one reply. Keith assured me numerous times over the years that all records were saved appropriately if a situation arose and I would be contacted.

Not knowing when Keith died, all I can do is wait. I apologise for any inconvenience. I will keep looking for details of another contact I had when Keith had time off.

Coming Soon!

While the garden has been left to the mercy of a wet winter and poor drainage, I was not neglecting my writing…well maybe a little. Except when hubby was working from home, I managed to write some new poems. These will be posted in August. I do hope you enjoy my most recently written pieces.

7 years ago this week….

7 Year Anniversary Achievement
Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 7 years ago.

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

7 years ago I registered with WordPress.com, created one post then promptly forgot my password.

Back then I had no idea how to get back in and after a lot of frustration, I gave up. On a whim in 2017, I tried again and bingo!

I decided I needed to work this out. I was a little more techno by then I looked up a Theme and discovered “On a Whim”, so it’s stuck. Every anniversary I’ve thought about changing it but… every year I decide “On a Whim” is just perfect for me.
