“Thou who hast given so much to me, grant one thing more, a grateful heart.”
As most of you will by now be aware, we had some very unwelcome news back in October.
Trips to the doctor became admissions into hospital, and before long life was taking an unexpected turn.
It’s been quite a journey!
Yet the landscape along the way has been, and still is, utterly amazing and quite unexpected.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your love and prayers, your support and your kindness shown in so many thoughtful ways.
Our overwhelming feeling is one of gratitude: gratitude for the love we know and share, and gratitude for the company of God who travels this path with us and will never let us go.
I have become so aware of God’s presence upholding and sustaining us – not in a thunder-bolt kind of way – but in the deep knowledge that He is walking beside us and holding us in His Love. That Love is stronger and more powerful than any diagnosis, it is the Love revealed in pierced hands and out-stretched arms; and it is the Love which embraces us all.

With all good wishes and many thanks,

A gentle plea from the Vicarage to let us know if someone is ill or in hospital and a pastoral visit would be appreciated.
