Lent Day 30- mixed musings

The weather today

seems to be trying

to reflect my mood, sunshine, showers,

hail, rain, snow, dark skies, bright skies,

cold wind…

Maybe it is just a comment on how the world is,

for all the hope of spring

war still rages, I heard a report of the shooting

of an innocent woman today, it horrified me,

she said she was 1cm from death, all for being in the wrong place

at the wrong time,

and yet it was her place, her village, her road!

No wonder the sky turns dark.

The I receive a video of my youngest grandson,

playing with the cat,

the sky brightens with his giggles,

the cats are hibernating again,

waiting for the snow and wind to pass,

I am too in some senses,

a fresh medical certificate gives me more healing time

lightening my load,

until I turn on myself for needing it, thankfully that doesn’t last long…

I do to myself what we so often do to others,

why do we love to hate,

todays news contained criticism of Will Smith,

yet none of Chris Rock… yet bullies take many forms,

and then Emma Raducanu, suddenly everyone is a Tennis expert,

the darling of the court is being vilified,

she is 19 in her first professional season,

give her a break…

give one another a break,

maybe give yourself a break….

Spring will return,

and price hikes aside,

one day soon,

all will be well


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
