‘The Kindness of Friends’

After a few days of glorious sunshine – albeit cold -yesterday was a wet blustery day – and as I had an appointment to attend – I needed to venture out! This was not a big problem for me – except for the lack of regular public transport in our area – one of the realities…

‘Talents’

Recently I have been so impressed at finding out that so many people that I know have talents that I never knew about – they really are so talented – and I have to confess that I feel as though my talents fade into insignificance – in comparison with theirs. I guess I have always had…

‘The Small Things’

The darkness is beginning to lift as I wait for the dawning of this new day – so far – the skies seem heavy – grey – not holding out much promise – making me wonder if the day will bring much brightness at all. Suddenly – into my vision appears a tiny robin – hopping swiftly…

‘If The Stars Were Made To Worship – So Will I ‘

Over the past few days we have been able to see the two planets – Venus and Jupiter – with the naked eye in the early mornings. It’s just amazing to me and reminds me of times when I have been in places away from the city lights – and gazed up at the myriad…

‘The Full Picture’

Over the holiday period we began a new tradition – anyone who visited was welcome to help complete the colourful picture of a new jigsaw. It was fun – as various ones stopped at the table and slotted in a few pieces. There were those who were more dedicated to seeing the full picture complete…

‘Facing The Future’

‘Pause on the Threshold’

There’s a tendency – when all the Christmas festivities are over – to go rushing into the new year – to plan whatever is next – to book that holiday – to begin new ventures. We are bombarded with advertisements – for those holiday destinations –  for the next new thing in our lives – so…

‘Emmanuel – God With Us’

For me – this is an awesome thought – that God Himself – came down to this earth – simply because He wanted to be with us! He not only lived among the people on earth at that time – but continues to live with us even now. ‘How can this be?’ – a question…

‘Leaving Your Mark’

This time of year is one when I especially remember friends – recall times spent with them over the years – as my path has crossed with theirs. Some of those friendships only lasted for a short while – as our lives moved apart – others continued for many years – yet – each left…

‘Thank You For The Music’

Don’t worry – I’m not writing a reflection about the song – ‘Thank you for the music’ – sung by ABBA – much as I enjoy that song alongside many others – I simply use those words as a heading for my reflection today! This morning the sky was spectacular and glorious – I tried to…
