Late spring last year. New growth and a field which had been cut but not ploughed. All statements of the absolutely obvious! But it got me thinking. Those familiar words of Jesus…‘I am the way, the truth and the life…‘ Try to unpack that statement! Too much to compute and try to find an explanation.Continue reading “The Way…”

Seeing and believing
I’m guessing that each of us who look at this photograph will interpret it in from our own perspective. Thankfully our personal perspective is unique. Our moment as a physical being will never happen again. How we live and think is utterly ours!!! God relates to us in a unique way. How we see, hearContinue reading “Seeing and believing”
Looking outwards, looking inwards, just looking. A moment in time to ‘be’, and not ‘to do’. How do we use that time? Fill it with distractions? Music, words, work, needs or wants? It is so easy to immerse ourselves in what distracts us, diverts us from the moment, Even when trying to pray or focus,Continue reading “Being…”
This really made me laugh. The demand directed towards Red Squrrels to drive carefully!!!! I’m astonished that they are allowed to drive, and also the revelation that they are able to read! But clearly things are not as they seem, because they are being asked to drive carefully! A bit like life and our interpretationContinue reading “Interpretation?”
Sounds and vision…
Ezekiel 43:2 –…. ‘and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory. The wonderful words of Ezekiel in which he tries to describe the glory and voice of God. He’s trying to describe the indescribable; I’ve tried toContinue reading “Sounds and vision…”
Land, sea and air….
A ship sailing on the Forth of Clyde. A handy bench seat to sit upon and reflect. The expanse of clouds and movement of the air. I was lost in the moment when I took this photograph. The words of God in Psalm 46, verse 10… ‘Be still and know that I am God; IContinue reading “Land, sea and air….”
Sunday evening and time for the blog. I’ve never done a blog on a Sunday before, so here goes…. Looking south from home one morning, I was lost in wonder. Rushed outside and took this shot which had me weeping with joy….truly!!! There is a wonderful descrition of God as being ‘ineffable….. Great word, notContinue reading “Morning glory”
I look at this sky and the clouds travelling. I look at my life and the twists and turns each day. I have no answers only questions. Too many to hold at once. I open my heart and let them go, into the love of God. Surrounding and guiding and whispering, peace and love andContinue reading “Glory….!!”
The road goes ever on and on….
The Road goes ever on and on,Down from the door where it began.Now far ahead the Road has gone,And I must follow, if I can,Pursuing it with eager feet,Until it joins some larger wayWhere many paths and errands meet.And whither then? I cannot say. The words of young Bilbo Baggins as he sets off, inContinue reading “The road goes ever on and on….”
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever…. (Isaiah 40 verse 8). Endings and beginnings, waiting and hoping. Where do our hearts rest during our days and moments….? God’s word; spoken, held, listened to… How do we hear, see and sense? New life and moments of insight andContinue reading “Waiting…”
