‘Morning Glory’

I’m sure I’ve loved the long days of Summer as much as anyone else – and in many ways – I’m sorry they are coming to an end – with the sun rising later in the mornings and setting earlier in the evenings. However – I delight in being up early enough to see those sunrises…

‘Embrace The Season’

We’re at the ‘changing of the seasons’ – the summer is past – the autumn is with us – and very soon we will be aware of the winter approaching. How we feel about the changing of the seasons really depends on our attitude – we can resent it – or embrace it – we…

‘Silence’

  So often as I have sat in the quiet of the morning – I’ve had the sense that I could reach out and touch the silence – feel it – taste it – hear it – it’s felt so close – so strong. This morning was one of those times – and I recalled…

‘Warnings’

One of our regular walks takes us alongside dykes and a river – where there are warning signs . We have walked alongside the river – in times of drought – like we had this summer – and also in times of flood     It’s very obvious when the river is in flood just why…

‘A Reflection’

  I’m always fascinated by reflections in the water – this picture is not one of my best by any means – but was taken the other day – and reminded me of a poem I wrote about 30 years ago – although it’s perhaps not the best as poetry goes – it expresses my thoughts…

‘Slow Down’

We often walk by the canal into the city – and the other day as we did this we reminisced about holidays that we had years ago on narrow boats – traversing a variety of canals. One thing stuck out to us about those times – it was the slow pace of life – for a…

‘In Thankfulness’

Yesterday we celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary – and – as I sit and look back over the years I’m filled with thankfulness to God for the great part He has played in our lives. What an adventure we have been on – and are still on – with Him. He has taken us to places…

‘Leaving Tracks’

  It was interesting to note – on a recent walk – how many tracks I spotted on a small stretch of dry sandy path. It’s quite usual to spot tracks when we have had rain and the ground is soft and wet – easy for prints to be left behind – or – in…

‘After The Harvest’

What a fascinating time of the year this has been – so much happening around us on the farm – so much different machinery going up and down the lane. The combine has probably been the largest of them all – with the tractors coming and going alongside. We’ve passed the long span of the…

‘Morning Dew’

How refreshing this morning – sitting outside in the freshness of the early morning – seeing the grass glitter with the morning dew – a sure sign of a new day about to begin. There really is something so special about these early mornings and I’m enjoying them – so grateful for the opportunity –…
