Prayer 183: Sunshine and flowers

Dear God

Thank You so much for this wonderful weekend we’ve just had. Lots of glorious sunshine, the flowers are beginning to show themselves, and we spent as much time as possible in the garden or on the allotment. Thank You for the natural world You have created and the opportunity to spend time in it. The outdoors just puts everything into perspective for me. Thank You.


Prayer 117: the secret joy of skipping church

Dear God

I have to say how lovely it was to skip church yesterday, and go and work on the allotment instead. It was really very enjoyable indeed, and I will definitely do that again without feeling guilty. It’s good to know that You don’t exist solely in a church on a Sunday, but are right there amongst the plants and the soil and the sunshine, and in the general camaraderie of allotment life as well. As well, of course, as being at the very heart of our being and existence. Thank You.

Prayer 46: the joy of sunshine

Dear God

Thank You for a lovely weekend where we spent most of the time in the garden or on the allotment. It’s really good to be outside in late autumn in such glorious weather – so thank You very much for the chance to get involved with nature for a whole weekend. Living in the UK where rain is our default weather, that’s quite a miracle! Thank You.
