Comfort and peace…..

Forging ahead into the unknown can leave you a little weary and I am in that place right now. I have nearly finished the tasks that I am responsible for today and then for a few days I can retreat.

As I struggled to complete some important forms last night a memory floated up from Summer 2011. I was fortunate enough to be living next to the park that hosted a ‘Proms in the Park’ concert where Aled Jones was the star turn. It was freezing and I sat at my open front room window wrapped in a blanket and Aled’s beautiful voice carried across the tall cedar trees. I will never forget it. Here he is singing my favourite prayer……

      I will never forget his voice as it sailed across those trees that night…it’s not until to stop awhile that we realise how worn we have become. The simple things restore don’t they? Good to hear from you mj x

    Beautiful – and very apt for us all. I’ve loved this since I was a little girl. I recently found this version – quite different but very beautiful.
