Merry Christmas this special morning, full of promise and hope from One so small and vulnerable.
Bright morning star.
The biggest visitor recently is the snow. We in England take very badly to it as everything seems to stop; goodness knows how we would cope in other countries. My walks through the woods towards Saltburn have been wonderful.
The sun coming through the viaduct promising a little warmth (but not for a while yet).
This jolly character looked pleased to be resting but was not in the mood for conversation.
The visitor who was interesting to spend time with was George, known as The Pebbleman or Dr Geebers. George is passing through our seaside town and leaving his mark in both the pebble sculptures he builds and those he speaks to. He welcomed me into his temporary home (under the road) beside his stone creation. Follow the link above for further info on this homeless young man, the photo below is George at Saltburn.
The sun was shinning, but trust me it was cold and since then we have had temperatures below minus10.
Note to evening office:
I saw a stranger yestereen,
I put food in the eating place
Drink in the drinking place
Music in the listening place
And in the sacred name of the Triune
He blessed myself and my house
My cattle and my dear ones
As the lark said in her song ‘Often, often, often
Goes Christ in the stranger’s guise.’
