‘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…

‘Nothing Wasted’

As I walked along this morning it took me a while to recognize what was different – something had changed. It wasn’t just the fact that the harvest had been gathered – the earth turned over – and the fields were looking so different from what they had been over the past weeks and months…

‘Leave It There’

Usually when I set off for my early morning walk – one of the first things that I do is to try to clear my mind – letting go of all the worries – cares – anxieties and anything that crowds in – in order to free my spirit – take in the peace that…

‘Cover Me’

One of the most special things for me – as I walk each day – is the sense of being completely surrounded by peace – quiet fields are on all sides – the sky seems to stretch out forever – and I am alone – yet – I am so conscious that actually I am…

‘With Me In The Waiting’

I don’t know about you but I find it hard to wait! Whenever I decide to do something I can hardly wait to begin – waiting for answers – or for things to happen – anything that requires me to wait really tests my patience – and so often throws me back onto God. As…

‘Find Your Pace’

As I set off for my walk this morning I began to walk at quite a brisk pace. I usually begin in this way as that part of the path is long and straight. Further on in my walk there are areas that I walk when my pace slows – allowing me to feel the…

‘ Appreciation’

Struggling to be ‘inspired’ as I walked today I was conscious of where my thoughts had been over the past days and weeks – with regard to my Blog. I had been feeling ‘guilty’ in a way – in that I had not responded to those who had taken the time to read my Blog…

‘Offer Accepted!’

Over the past few weeks we’ve been house hunting – an often daunting and stressful experience at the best of times – but especially hard for us as the move is made necessary after the death of our lovely daughter in law. The three generations of us have lived together for the past six years…

‘Beneath The Leaves’

It’s been so interesting walking past the fields of crops each day – and watching the steady growth and the changes they bring. Walking  – past the fields where the sugar beet is growing – I was struck by how much growth there was above the ground – the abundance of leaves – yet it…
