‘Making A House A Home’

Just a week ago we moved house – what a day it was – and what a week it has been! So much to do – so many boxes – a herculean task of moving things around and finding room for all our belongings. Before we moved we decide to bring everything with us and…

‘The Wait Is Over’

It seems like it’s been forever – waiting for the house move to finalize – but today – that wait is over – today we get the keys to our house – and it almost seems unreal! The months of navigating the stress and frustration – that this process has brought with it – will…

‘Stress/Serenity’

We were hoping to move house this week – but the process has been delayed. This seems to be something very common – but to us – and to me in particular it’s proved to be very stressful. I guess I’m like a lot of people – so impatient when faced with delay – always…

‘Singing The Lords Song’

It’s been a difficult week this past week – I’ve struggled with the situation we’re in – felt frustrated and tired – emotionally as well as physically – I’ve even found it hard at times to ‘sing the Lords song’ – recalling the time when the Jews had been taken captive – were living in…

‘Clocks Back – But Not Our Time’

This weekend marks the end of British summertime – and we turn our clocks back an hour. I always appreciate the fact that by doing so we get an extra hour’s sleep – as well as knowing that for a while it will be light earlier in the mornings – meaning that I won’t have…

‘The Seeds of Eternity’

Living in the countryside has enabled me to observe the seasons very closely – I have loved watching the whole process – from the seeds being sown to the harvest. I remember seeing those first shoots – and watching how quickly they grew – in what seemed no time at all the fields were golden….

‘Feel The Rain’

Most mornings it’s still dark outside as I get ready to go out for my early walk – in fact some days I stand at the window waiting for the darkness to lift just enough to enable me to see my way. When it’s so dark it’s often difficult for me to determine just what…

‘Zoom Bake-Off’

It’s hard to believe that only a few short months ago I had never even heard of ‘zoom’ – but of course I – like so many – have become quite familiar with it. Ok – so it’s not the same as seeing – and speaking – to others face to face – but I…

‘A Sound In The Trees’

The wind was so strong as I walked this morning – and as I walked I was aware of the sound of the wind in the trees. I have often heard the wind blowing the trees and sounding almost like the waves of the sea. This morning as I heard the sound a memory came…

‘The Cool Of The Morning’

There’s such a freshness on these early Autumnal mornings – and I love it – along with the sun rising – so often on these mornings above the mist that hangs over the fields – it’s such a wonderful place to be. What better way to start my day – to not only feel that…
