“Prayer is like planting a seed.
Don’t dig it up to see how it is doing!
Pray for it. Release it by giving thanks.
Begin acting like you already have it!”

Gladden the soul of your servant,
for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

~ (Psalm 86:4)

11:11 . . . . when we hold our Remembrance Day

THE POPPY

Nature created a flower, with petals of brilliant red
Who’d have thought such a beautiful flower,
Would be used to remember the dead
For when all the guns have stopped firing, and there’s only mud and rain
God sent down his little red flowers, to cover the lads who remain
So remember every November, when we hold our Remembrance Day
Of the lads who lie neath the poppies, and the price that they had to pay

D. Rothwell

Although I haven’t walked in your shoes,

Although I haven’t walked in your shoes, you can be sure
the leather on mine is thin in places too.
And there have been times for every single one of us when we’ve
put on one foot in front of the other on a very thin thread of hope.
That’s why we need good people and positive messages around us –
to encourage us through those more difficult times.
And the truth is we take turns giving and receiving –
that’s how life works best.
May you have a blessed week..

“Let us pass this night in safety,
under Your protective care,
and rise when morning comes
to give You thanks and serve You with
joyful hearts.”

Wherever…thou shalt be,… pray there;

“Wherever…thou shalt be, pray secretly within thyself.
If thou shalt be far from a house of prayer, give not thyself trouble
to seek for one, for thou thyself art a sanctuary designed for prayer.
If thou shalt be in bed, or in any other place, pray there; thy temple is there.”

~ St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Sunday reflection . . . May every soul that touches mine…

“May every soul that touches mine – be it the slightest contact –
get there from some good; some little grace; one kindly thought;
one aspiration yet unfelt; one bit of courage for the darkening sky;
one gleam of faith to brave the thickening ills of life;
one glimpse of brighter skies beyond the gathering mists –
to make this life worthwhile.”

~George Eliot
