Red skies and prayer

4 Comments

Red sky at night, shepherds delight …. red sky at dawn, shepherds mourn. The dawn predicted the day. A glorious pink glow lighting the massing clouds. Wild, wet weather descends. Waves roll relentlessly towards the shore. A quick scurry to the shop, past fields sodden with rain. The wind gusts. Then home to the warm cosy fire to toast my toes. Hot spiced fruit juice to warm my hands. Advent candles counting down the days. The windowsill nativity grows apace – a new character for each day. Nimble fingers work at gifts, each stitch a prayer. The words of Isaiah ring through my mind: prepare the way of the Lord… a day for pondering, today.

A voice cries out: β€˜In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)

  1. Gorgeous, it almost feels like I am there!!! its getting warm here, but you make me long for those cool days!!!

  2. Was treated to a carol concert given by local choral society last night, as we walked down the narrow lanes we heard the eerie calls of mating foxes, it was bitingly cold outside but inside warm and welcoming … From a mini wilderness into the warmth and light … I pray that many will find joy and light this Advent Season
