Son1’s first sandcastle made with no help. Sunny day restoring my spirits. Tuesday group and the reminder that the sun has been shinning all along behind the clouds. Reminders of God’s work for good in the storms of life. Being outside without a coat. Beautiful book of children’s prayers called ‘imagine’ given to me by the lovely Alison (sample below).
‘O Lord, if life is stormy, I imagine I’m a tree, tossed and tumbled in the wind, and you show me how my roots are going stronger.’
‘O Lord, if I’m sad, I imagine I’m a seed curled up close in the arms of the earth and I know that soon the sun will come out to warm me.’
‘O Lord if I’m tired from too much thinking, I imagine I’m the sky, clear and bright and empty.’
