Folk can be reluctant to act on these "impulses" yet I think they're prompting from the Holy Spirit. Perhaps we all need to take more time to listen and then have the courage to act!
Once again the day began early ... not so early as has happened recently but certainly not long after 6.30 am! The fact that the sun was shining and the air mild made it easier to crawl out of bed (which was a bit too warm) and take a coffee to the garden. You can see from the 365Project picture that there were strong shadows and bright light.
Calling in at Saint Nicholas' mid-morning gave me a chance to catch the highly perfumed rose that grows near the door.
I guess the fruit series will give way to another rose collection ... I just love the huge variety in colours that you find among the various beds.
A day that begins early needs to end early too ... so ... a quick turn in the garden and off to bed!
In darkness and in light,
in trouble and in joy,
help us to trust your love,
to serve your purpose
and to praise your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
