‘Solace For The Soul’

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.

My God I seek You – for in you alone I find – solace for my soul

Rest from busyness – in a place of solitude – You provide for me

My heart leaps with joy – as my spirit is refreshed – sitting here with You

I come as those before – over centuries have done – to meet with You alone
