‘Offer Accepted!’

Over the past few weeks we’ve been house hunting – an often daunting and stressful experience at the best of times – but especially hard for us as the move is made necessary after the death of our lovely daughter in law. The three generations of us have lived together for the past six years…

‘Beneath The Leaves’

It’s been so interesting walking past the fields of crops each day – and watching the steady growth and the changes they bring. Walking¬† – past the fields where the sugar beet is growing – I was struck by how much growth there was above the ground – the abundance of leaves – yet it…

‘In His Time’

I don’t know about you – but I’m sort of impatient in some areas. When I decide to do something – or even get something – I want it quickly – I want things to happen ‘now’ and find it hard to wait – to bide my time. I’m reminded of a verse in scripture…

‘Adapting With A Smile’

Those of you who read my blogs will know how much I love walking in the early mornings – walks that usually take me round the edges of the fields on the farm where we presently live. Yesterday I almost stayed in – the rain was quite heavy and walking the day before had left…

‘Rose Tinted Glasses’

I refuse to allow the rain to stop me from enjoying my early morning walks – so at times I will take my large umbrella with me – as I prefer not to have to wear the hood of my raincoat especially as the temperature is quite warm. My umbrella is mainly blue in colour…

‘He Is My Constant’

As I look back over the year so far – a year that seems to be going by so fast – I am aware that we have faced – and still face – so many changes. We have watched the news almost daily – to see if anything else has changed – with regard to…

‘Face To Face’

It’s been quite a learning curve for me over the past weeks as I have learnt how to FaceTime – Zoom – or Skype – all things that I have avoided before – although I’m not really sure why! What a difference it has made during this time of Lockdown – to be able to…

‘He will Make A Way’

Over the past few days – the pathway that I walk each day has become overgrown – the grasses reaching to my knees – and after a night of rain it became almost impossible for me to walk along. Although I had on my colourful wellington boots to keep my feet dry – the grasses…

‘You Brighten My Day’

It seems as I walk each day that there is always something that ‘brightens my day’. I may come across a fox – slinking away among the grasses –¬† or startle some deer – causing them to bound away over the nearby fields – hares flatten themselves to the ground – keeping those long ears…

‘Capture The Silence’

So many times over the past weeks – as I have enjoyed my early morning walks – I have been almost stopped in my tracks by the silence. I feel it all around me – enveloping me – falling around me like a mantle – causing me to want to hold my breath – to…
