As the new year rolled in I realised that the reason our hopes are often crushed in this department is that we so often expect things to be different with the onset of the new calendar year but the patterns and habits in our life remain unchanged.
The same thing happens in our walk with God.
Don't allow this year to be another year where you make half hearted promises and resolutions. Look inside yourself and make the changes that need to be made and take hold of 2016 as a time to truly grow and change!
It has been a busy start to the summer season for Blue Lagoon and is bound to get busier again in the new year. But before the rush of the summer season catches up to us we thought we would take a moment to reflect on the year we have had.
We want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has donated time, money, skills and committed to praying for Blue Lagoon this year. Without you we would not have been able to accomplish so much!
There has been an incredible amount of work done to the grounds and buildings this year and that can not happen without the generosity of the people and businesses who look out for us along the way.
Andrew Walter Constructions has been incredible this year, with the donations of recycled materials from job sites, loaning us machinery and workers to get some of the bigger tasks completed and, the provision of truckloads of mulch to tidy up our gardens. Because of their generosity, we have been able to construct our initiatives course completely from recycled materials, a campfire area has been created for the campers to enjoy and we have been able to do some substantial landscaping to the site.
A number of projects were undertaken this year including:
Many local businesses have been a wonderful support in supplying materials & labor to aid us in our various projects this year.
We have had a number of skilled laborers donate time this year to come and assist us in the completion of projects and we thank you for the time and effort you have put in to help us get those done.
Our crew of volunteers at our working bee helped us to get the site looking fantastic and we are so grateful to them for their support time and effort.
It has been an incredible year and we praise God for his provision, guiding and blessings on the ministry at Blue Lagoon.
We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, and we look forward to sharing with in 2016!

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind."
Here's the form you've all been waiting for!!! Applications now open. Blessings, Kath
