Irene's thoughts

That’s the holiday fortnight over and things are back to normal again. Turkey, mince pies and stollen are away till next December. I wonder if we appreciate the ordinary things of life as much as we should. We buy expensive perfume and walk past a rose without smelling it. We get Sky TV to watch the football and don’t go out and kick a ball, or to watch comedy films and tell the kids to stop laughing so that we can hear the jokes. Sometimes we need to take a long hard look at ourselves and see what we are doing. 


The most basic thing we have is life, and that is a gift from Almighty God.


King David, in the Bible, said to God, ‘You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.’


Life, in all its ordinariness, is truly wonderful.

(see Psalm 139:13-14)
