Highlights! – Two Recipes, A Netflix Series & a Bible Passage Literally Changing Me

So Greenie came home with a huge bag of potatoes, which honestly I don’t usually cook with and don’t where he found them. However we made the most epic, creamy potato dish. Which honestly was so creamy and delicious. This recipe keeps the potatoes whole, but feel free to chop yours up a little. I did! YUM! SCRUM! 

For those of you who don’t know. My Dad is Sri Lankan. I grew up on the most magnificent curries at home and at my relative’s houses. Going to restaurants I would never order curry as they were always a disappointment in comparison. With COVID lockdown I have not seen my family in months and feeling a little homesick, Greenie and I made the most epic curry this weekend. It took a bit of time. And a good chunk of meat. But gosh it was absolutely to die for. Greenie was in HEAVEN!!! And it felt so nice to stew curry for hours with the aromatics and let it simmer with all the flavours with the meat falling off the bone. It lasted for three meals. Would have lasted for four but Greenie was a bit gluttonous…

The Messiah.

So Greenie and I watched this series. It was so fascinating. Seriously. It is brooding. It is mysterious. It is thrilling. And it keeps you guessing. And it makes you think about what our reaction would be if something like that happens in our city, our town… One thing is for sure. The world is thirsty for the supernatural. 

Love to know what you think.

  • Bible Passage

Romans 12: 9-21

I have been reading this every night before bed. It realigns me. Redirects me. And reminds me that love looks like something. 

Love in Action

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

And that is it from me.

I pray that your weekend is full of glory and rest.

You are deeply loved and richly cherished,

Dr Christine Greenwood

When social distancing is over I am going to find the busiest food court in the whole of Brisbane, park myself right in the middle and people watch for HOURS on end. Oh my goodness I miss it SO much.

    Hi Christine – I’ve just discovered your blog. I love your thoughtful writing. Particularly enjoyed your interview with Unveiled Poppies. Thanks for sharing! I listened to the interview today with Bec and Jodie Hughes for Glory City Women and was so blessed. Now I have been convicted by the verse you’ve shared here. Plenty of food for thought today! Blessings to you this evening, from Barb
