For the invigoration of a walk with the dog this freezing cold day – we thank you
For the glory of a deep red sunrise following the blood red moon – we thank you
For the busy-ness of diary setting, and planning, and reading you word – we thank you
For the peace that will come, at day’s end,
after good work, or mediocre work, or even less than that – we thank you

Sunrise over Earlston Manse 21 January 2019

For in each moment,
positive and negative;
busy and peaceful
full and empty
energised and weary
We are never alone,
but companioned by you
nurtured by you
fed by you
Our Creator
Our Counsellor
Our Friend

sufficient for all our needs
today,
Amen
