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……

    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.
