              Want a Facelift for your Home? Start with Your Roof

              Feb 28 2013 Published by under 1

              Go outside and stand in front of your house. Now take a good look at your home. What are your thoughts? Do things look like they could use a little facelift?

              Your roof makes up to 50% of your home front, and a roof restoration can often be the most economic way of updating the look of your homes exterior in addition to giving you the most dramatic results. A fresh coat of paint on your roof can really breathe new life into the look of the whole house, and bring a modern look to an older home.

              Choosing your roofs colour is the most important element in achieving the look and style you are going for. There are a few ways to help you with this decision.

              * Tear sheets. Flip through magazines and if something strikes you, tear it out and put it in a binder. Eventually you’ll realize a trend in your choices… Just make sure this ‘trend’ will suite the house your about to paint.

              * Taking a look at your pre-existing brick, choose a colour in the brick and bring it up to your roof. This is a great way of giving your house flowing visual appeal, when colours blend easily to the eye it gives the feeling of a well coordinated style.

              * Dark colour are very on trend, especially with a rendered finished wall. Greys, blacks and a dark terracotta always are in high demand. Retaining heat can be a repercussion of being on roofing’s colour trend in our warm Queensland climate. Insulation and heat productive paint are two little secretes that can minimize the heat that you’ll feel inside your home.

              Reflections on Life

              Feb 25 2013 Published by under 1

              Life – what is life! Life can be described in many ways and has many facets and interpretations. It presents us with an ongoing stream of experiences of situations, events and interactions of all kinds with other people and our environment.

              It is creation in its magnificent splendour – the original bringing into existence of the universe by God.

              For humans it is a journey encompassing all the seasons, colour and streams of life’s experiences.

              The miracle of new life in any form of creation brings wonder and amazement as we become aware of the intrinsic formation of such an unexplainable divine plan.

              For humans there are many rituals and traditions that help celebrate the different seasons and significant moments in life.

              A welcoming of a new child might entail a ritual of a Christening or Blessing in the Christian tradition or perhaps a Naming Ceremony for those less religious. In other cultures and belief systems children are welcomed in a variety of ways but none-the-less mostly it is found to be a joyful celebration of the miracle of new birth.

              Life can sometimes be brief – the miracle taken back from where it began just as life is beginning – the mystery of why these sad experiences happen not to be explained.

              Life changes for humans as the body grows and life is experienced in new ways. Learning takes place as the brain develops and intelligence is gained and used for the betterment of human kind.

              At times the human body suffers from physical limitations this being a challenge as strength of spirit and courage come to the fore.

              During the seasons of life ritual is shown to be important such as times of celebration when a person reaches the age of eighteen – a time of maturity and starting out as an adult on life’s journey.

              Permanency of relationships can be celebrated by the ritual of Marriage as people start a new chapter along the journey called life.

              The miracle of new life can emerge again in this relationship of Marriage as a new life is created and welcomed to the world.

              As the continuing seasons and cycles of life are observed, life can represent colour as of a rainbow in these seasons of new beginnings, celebrations, changes and endings.

              Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – colours of the rainbow – how symbolic of life’s journey as the rainbow is composed of the entire spectrum of colour from the shortest wavelength violet to the longest wavelength red.

              A closing ritual now takes place as the body has accomplished its purpose and the ending of life as humans know it is honoured and the life celebrated as the spirit travels back to the Divine from whence it came.
