…..so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all. But we make it so complex! Today is Trinity Sunday when we focus on the fact that God is essentially beyond our understanding, but offers us a relationship. Unfathomable, you bet! So why have the cross to illustrate what I’m thinking? Because it is visceral andContinue reading “Love so amazing….”

It’s Saturday, and time for the usual pause. I astonish myself with what comes out of my head each day. Thank you for reading and making your own sense of my writing. It is a blessing to me. Enjoy the photograph of an Eider Duck, taken last week.
Hot off the press! Photograph taken this morning. Coquet Island; morning glory!! The Island was a place where saints met; St Cuthbert and Elfleda, Abbess of Whitby on a number of occasions. Also where St Henry of Coquet lived until his death in 1127. He was known for his gifts of healing and his cheerfulness!!Continue reading “Morning Glory”
Stormy afternoon, a couple of days ago. Some Black Headed Gulls playing in and with the waves. Just for the sheer joy of it, and because they can! Not a care in the world! I watched them for a few minutes and found myself being lost in the pondering. The camera has captured a momentContinue reading “Freedom”

Thank you so much to all of you, for being part of this. Your encouragement and comments have been a blessing, The photgraph shows aContinue reading “Interweaving”
Knowing too much..
Another animal photgraph, to hang my thoughts on! I’m not going to name the seagull, I think I’ll leave it to you! The one thing that strikes me, is that this animal seems to know too much, and why not, I ask myself?! I have my own unique take on my part of the creation,Continue reading “Knowing too much..”
Yes, I probably have taken leave of my senses! I photographed this little chap yesterday, as he was sunbathing. We named him Bertram,or what ever the female equivalent might be! Need I say more…but I will! He just seemed to be enjoying the moment and was completely unphased by my intrusion into his siesta. AllContinue reading “Bertram”
Can you spot the dolphin in this photograph? You have a choice between an orange marker buoy and the dolphin breaking the surface! It’s always a suprise to see these wonderful creatures, as they make their own way through their own world. Understanding what we don’t, seeing with different eyes, relating to their Creator inContinue reading “Suprise!”
It’s Saturday 30th May; the day before Pentecost. The energising moment for the nascent early Church. I’m having a break from writing, but took this photograph yesterday evening as the sun went down. Waiting, wanting, hoping, fearing, longing…some words to reflect upon. Thank you for who you are and all you are…as you wait.
Great view, seeing all..missing nothing. Way above conradiction, alone but safe. Wondering what it all means. Not my world, everyone’s space. Mixed up and confused, alone…. or part of something, just beyond what senses offer. Perhaps I’ll take flight and look for other horizons and inspirations.
