I’m up early on this beautiful morning to share my blog with you before going out for the day.
We spent yesterday on Lindisfarne Holy Island – a tidal Island off the northeast coast of England. It’s an important centre for Celtic Christianity and many people visit each year.
As always – when I visit this island – I find ‘solace for my soul’ – and even when there are other visitors around – find that there is always the opportunity to sense and feel the quiet and refuge that this place offers – to me – as it has to so many over the centuries.
Fresh winds blowing – creating a sense of refreshment for the soul – bird songs bringing music to my ears- remnants of crosses – statues – reminders of the many pilgrims seeking the quiet and refuge of this place – always a space to find for quiet reflection.
‘Solace for the soul’ can be found in so many places – if only we take the time – and opportunity – to find it.

Holy Island isn’t too far from where I live Lois and it is a beautiful place, I’m glad you enjoyed your time there.
Thank you Andrea – so where do you live
I live in North Tyneside, very close to Northumberland.
We lived in South Shields for 8 years – loved it we could walk to the beach in 10 mins 👍 we visited lots of places in Northumberland – lovely part of the world 💕
So we were almost across the river neighbours 🙂 It is lovely indeed.
Left almost 5 years ago and still miss it
