‘Thank You For The Music’

Don’t worry – I’m not writing a reflection about the song – ‘Thank you for the music’ – sung by ABBA – much as I enjoy that song alongside many others – I simply use those words as a heading for my reflection today! This morning the sky was spectacular and glorious – I tried to…

‘You Lifted My Spirits’

The past days have been grey – the skies heavy with rain clouds -the wind howling – and – my body has been struggling too – leaving me feeling much as the atmosphere around me. Then – into that greyness – came a splash of colour – flowers – sent to cheer – and that’s just…

‘The Wonder of a Rainbow’

There seems to have been an abundance of rainbows recently – the dark skies creating a perfect backdrop – often during the onset of the early evening. I love these rainbows – try to capture them on my phone camera – and can never seem to do them justice – the colours too spectacular –…

‘Celebrate With Me’

My Blog has reached it’s first anniversary!! I feel so excited to think that I have succeeded in writing my blog for a whole year. When I began I wasn’t sure if I could keep it up – I was a very new beginner and very nervous about sharing my writing with other people –…

‘Thank You For Walking With Me’

Today is cold and grey – my health not as good as it could be – yet – I managed to go for a short local walk. The Autumn colours were muted – without the sun shining on them – but nevertheless – they still created a wonderful display on which to feast my eyes…

‘Kick The Leaves’

Almost wherever I look – I see those wonderful colours of Autumn – while I may ‘mourn’ the loss of Summer – the wonder of the Autumn draws me. Amid the later arrival of the dawn – and the earlier decent of the evening – I wonder at the changing of colour – those glorious…

‘Rest Awhile’

I have to confess that I don’t always find it easy to simply ‘rest – to let go of everything – allowing my mind and body to be still. I find myself thinking about all the things there are to do – so – cut short that rest – get on with the next thing….

‘Go For It’

I’m so glad this morning that I decided to ‘go for it’ – even in a small way. Creeping downstairs in the semi darkness – I realised that there wasn’t going to be much to see from my doorway – everything was shrouded with a heavy mist – and – what would be the point…

‘The Wind’

The gusting wind almost tore the door out of my hand as I opened it this morning – I was on the verge of closing it – but paused – felt that freshness as it hit my face – and decided that I would miss something of this early morning – if I shut out…

‘Today – Is A Gift’

I have often heard it say that ‘Today is the first day of your life’ – what a thought – to see today as a fresh day – when so often – even before I begin my day – I am defeated by the mistakes of days gone before. I can so easily be influenced…
