‘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…

‘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…
