  • THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Dear Lord as we are now in spring time we pray:

for the cycle of life which brings death and rebirth; for lengthening days and sunlight’s warmth upon the soil; for a snowdrop’s beauty reflecting its Creator’s artistry; for new born lambs their joy and exuberance; for all of creation and the majesty of its Creator. We rejoice in the promise of Spring
