Thought for the day - (Spring - New animal and plant life) Tuesday
After seemingly weeks of grey grim skies and ceaseless rain, finally we are experiencing some sunshine and Spring is approaching.
It’s doubly gratifying that this change in the weather coincides with, to my mind, one of the nicest times of the year when all of God’s creatures and creations are entering the world for the first time.
The fields are a riot of new crops interspersed with glorious poppies and the shrubs and trees are coming into bloom painting the landscape with their soft flowers and vibrant colours.
In the garden the birds are busily darting to and fro either nest building or feeding their new chicks. Before long whole clutches of rather fuzzy youngsters will be standing next to mum or dad, beaks open seemingly saying “me, me”. From the top of the garden struts a rather handsome cock pheasant, in his full colours, with four wives and long legged chicks darting about enjoying this whole new world.
In the narrow lanes little rabbit faces peer out from the hedges, sadly oblivious to their place in the food chain and totally clueless about motor vehicles.
A little further along the lane a huge truck is stationary as a line of pheasant chicks stroll across the road with Mrs pheasant attacking the truck windscreen to keep it away from her chicks. The driver is leaning from his cab window with a beaming smile on his face and says “I love this time of year”.
What a shame it is that it cannot be “this time of year” all the while, when we can marvel at the creation of life, we can lie on our backs in a meadow and just look at the sky watching the fluffy white clouds, perhaps making animal shapes in our minds. The world becomes timeless and still, the only sound is the rustle of leaves and the buzzing of the bees and insects and the trials and tribulations of this modern world seems to fade, just for a short while, into the background.
This life seems full of worries, problems with this and that and little time to enjoy the natural things in life. Take the opportunity and just spend these few minutes to enjoy the peace and solitude we all are deprived of.
Try to find time to leave the daily problems behind and enjoy the beauty the good Lord gives us and remember the world as we first saw it through our child's eyes.
Thought for the day - Sunday (your secret world)
- Thought for the day - Sunday (Your secret world)
There are times when we need the comfort of our own organised inner world. Find your safe place and go to it when stresses become too great. No one can reach you there or physically hurt you.
Thought for the day Monday (compassion)
- Thought for the day - (Compassion) Monday
Thought for the day - Monday - is about compassion and what we as an individual can do to help others in need and are hungry and homeless. Put yourself in the place of deprived, feel how they feel, visualise the utter despair, then think what could I
Thought for the day - Wednesday- Healing using the power of your mind
- Thought for the day - Wednesday (Healing)
We all have the power to relieve suffering and heal using the power of our mind and body. We need no medical knowledge but never use this in place of conventional treatment - just use to help.
Do you find time to look at the beauty of the world rather than its problems ?
