‘Feeling Blessed’

Today I celebrate my birthday – and I’m conscious – as I read birthday wishes – and as I open presents – that the greatest of all gifts I can have – is the gift of years. As I look back over the years – they are full – rich – lifechanging – and that…

‘Snow Delights’

Over the past days a friend – who recently came to the UK to live – has been posting pictures of snow – not just of wonderful snowy scenes – but of herself – enjoying not just the beauty she saw around her – but also of herself revelling in that snow – something that…

‘The True Value’

It’s interesting just how much we take for granted – until – suddenly that’s taken away – and we realise the true value of what we had. This morning I’m realising again just how valuable my health is – and how often I guess – I take it for granted . On Monday I was…

‘Discarded Pieces’

After a prolonged absence I returned to my water colour painting – everything had been unpacked since our move in November – but as I had not done any painting for almost a year – I had been hesitating on starting again. I am very new to this art – still only learning – but…

‘The Heavens declare His Glory’

I’ve been missing my early morning walks as it’s been so dark when I really want to go out – but I’m noticing how already that is changing – so this morning I was able to get out as the sun was rising. I couldn’t resist taking some quick photos – even though I have…

‘The Solitary Seat’

I’m loving the village we now live in – so enjoying and appreciating the fact that I can walk straight out of the door into the quiet of the countryside – or simply take a short stroll through the village itself. As in so many places a bench sits in quiet solitude – inviting –…

‘Blessings On This Day’

Today is the day of the year when we traditionally wish every one ‘A Happy – or Blessed New Year’ – however – as I sit to write I am so very conscious of the importance of each day – and so in the light of that I want to wish everyone ‘A blessed –…

‘A Christmas Blessing For You’

I realised today that in a weeks time Christmas will be upon us – so of course I really need to send my Christmas greetings to you all now – as somehow – although it won’t be as busy this year – my mind will be elsewhere next week! For me there is no better…

‘Walking New Pathways’

My walking boots came out this week – as I found time at last to get out and explore the new area where we find ourselves living. How fortunate we are to be able to simply walk out of our front door – straight into the countryside. A lovely quiet country road wends its way…
