‘Not For A Minute’

How I appreciate having the time and opportunity to walk alone in the quiet of the mornings. The inspiration for my blogs comes to me during those times – as do challenges and encouragement to my soul. While walking along the other day I became aware of how many things I simply do not understand…

‘What Is In Your Hand’

I find it so interesting to hear all the things that people are finding to do during this period of ‘lock down’. So many arts and crafts are being resurrected by those who in normal times have not been able to find the time to indulge in doing them. There are the artists – painting…

‘We’ll Meet Again’

My thoughts this morning drifted towards the VE celebrations that will be held, virtually of course! tomorrow, to mark the ending of the second world war in Europe. As part of those celebrations there will be a special rendition by Dame Vera Lynn and Katherine Jenkins of the song ‘We’ll Meet Again’. I was pondering…

‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’

For some reason this morning was one of the very rare occasions when I really had to push myself to go out for my early morning walk – generally I am so eager – looking forward to both the exercise and the solace walking in the quiet usually brings to my soul. As I walked…

‘Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord’

My heart was heavy as I sat in the early morning quiet – grief was my companion – sorrow surrounded me. Normally I am eager to get out for my walk around the open fields – where bird song is all there is to hear – causing my soul to sing along too – but…

The combination of having to stay home along with the beautiful weather we are having has given me the opportunity to walk around the fields almost every morning. I’m an early riser – so for me my favourite time of the day is first thing in a morning – the peace and the quiet –…

‘He Calls My Name’

One of my favourite parts of the Easter Sunday account is of when Mary Magdalene had gone to the tomb – saw that the stone had been removed – and when the disciples discovered that Jesus was no longer there she stayed at the tomb weeping – heart broken and sad – wanting to know…

‘It’s Friday – But Sunday’s Coming’

It’s only a matter of weeks ago that the fields were awash – floods disrupted so much – there was hardship – fear – and an uncertainty about the future. During this time however the farmers were busy – it seemed that they took advantage of not being able to carry on as normal and…

‘Walking In The Sunshine’

I feel so very blessed to live here in the countryside. The house we rent is on a farm – where each day I can walk around the fields and enjoy the peace and quiet – no risk of having social contact with anyone! It truly is solace for the soul. During the past weeks…

‘An Eternal Perspective’

The whole world is changing – our lives as we have always known them are changing. As more and more restrictions are put upon us – as we face difficulties and challenges in our social – financial and emotional lives we find that so often our perspective on life changes too. We have to make…
