“The Sleeping warrior” Arran.
I have been so blessed to have had some time out with family in a sunny place. I realise how very much I have missed opportunities just to rest and be, in a warm climate. I have especially enjoyed the light here, the amazing variety of colours in the sunsets, and last night the moon … Continue reading A vision of harmony! →
Today would have been Colin’s birthday. The date is etched in my soul forever. But what happens when the person is no longer here? For most people, it is just another date in the calendar- of no special significance. Yet for the people left behind, you are marking the date with the key person missing. … Continue reading A wistful emptiness →
In the traffic the other day, I saw a teenager riding his bike, doing a wheelie up a hill. I have to say it wasn’t what he was meant to be doing I am sure, and it didn’t look that safe. But what I noticed was the sheer joy and exhilaration on his face. He … Continue reading A ‘wheelie up a hill’! →
It could have been the composer Debussy or Mozart that said that ‘music is the space between the notes’. This quotation often recurrs in my thoughts, on the midst of busy and pressured days, full of conversations, things to do, places to be. Life seems a little bewildering just now, full of adjustments to the … Continue reading ‘The silence between the notes’ →

It could be listening to … Continue reading Anger and advocacy! →

In Glasgow we often don’t appreciate water. It often pours from the sky when it is least wanted, breaking your umbrella, soaking through your jacket, and making your feet cold and soggy. Only the reflection of street lights in puddles make it bearable! Yet the gift of water is amazing, whether it is the gurgling … Continue reading The gift of water….. →
Sometimes I question what my purpose is. I wonder if God can really use me, I am so flawed and feel so small. Can God ever use me to make any kind of difference? Beaches are a place which encourage me to ponder and to pray. I wrestle with my dreams, and the difference between … Continue reading Starfish bring us hope! →
I was away for a few days last week, which I loved, and my son looked after our handsome dog Gabriel. I am grateful to him, and others who walked Gabriel when I was absent. My son was telling me what a good dog he had been, until I got in the door. In the … Continue reading A house full of feathers! →
Sometimes I forget to slow down. I try to do too many things, I am always trying to catch up. So one evening this week, I decided just to sit and watch the sun go down. It couldn’t be hurried, so I just sat and waited and reflected. It was a gorgeous still evening, with … Continue reading Sunset reflections. →
