So, my manicurist caringly hand-paints, or fashions diminutive crucifixes in little stones and pearls. She has taught her young assistant too. And while this is going on, there is much talk about Christ, and Church-related things. Before I attended...
A woman having her nails painted.
Being a peacemaker can be a tough place. At times it can backfire horribly, and you can end up the one that everyone is angry with. I also prayed that God would help them to stop before things got out of hand, and that my actions would not make...
The word "Love" made by people's hands
I was intrigued by the minute size of these seeds and followed the instructions carefully from the pack I had been given. From quite a large number, only five germinated and I transplanted them into little pots to give the roots the space they...
A sunflower growing on a window still
I arrived in the afternoon to be welcomed with love and compassion but obviously the impact of visiting was extremely painful. Overnight, I had a disturbing dream and by the early hours of the next morning, I was beginning to wonder if I had made...
Hot air balloon
I am not allowed a pet because like a lot of people I live in rented accommodation, but I have been amazed to see how many cats there are in the local area. I went for a walk yesterday and met three cats, all in the same park. Then there are lots of...

Those verses came to mind when I learned that our old friend Fred died last week. His passing was not unexpected as he had been unwell for a number of years. That said, he tried not to let his illness get in the way of taking a full part in...
Candles
So when I try and find a bit of quiet to try and pray and sit in silence trying to listen to God I sometimes (often maybe) doze off. I try to think of this as my way of praying, slipping into sleep while thinking of the Lord. I am sure he regards...
A cat asleep
But caring for a small collection of plants gives me great joy. Especially a tiny cactus I received from a very distant young relative last Christmas. Its a most unexpected gift from a most unexpected giver. My cactus struggled in its new home...
A cactus
God is every I look; usually when I leave my flat I lift my eyes to the beautiful hills as I walk to the car and pause and say in my heart the psalm 'I lift my eyes to the hills from where comes my help' (Psalm 121). This scene always raises my...
