I came across this book recently - given to me then aged about 3 by my godfather.
It was a well loved book as you can tell - I still have it over 60 years later!
aAll things bright and beautiful was one of my favourite hymns (still is really!) and I thought how simple it was back then to accept and believe in what I was taught at Sunday school. I think children back in the 40s were more accepting and less questioning anyway but my belief was unshakeable in those days.
Sometimes it is hard nowadays to be quite so accepting - maybe we should question - especially with all that is going on in the world just now but didn't Jesus say "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18 v 3.
A little card given to me by a good friend when I was going through some difficult times and which I keep in my diary to remind me of its advice!
And finally an idea from the Methodist Church website for you to think about!
Prayer Plaits Cut three equal lengths of wool (approx 9 inches or 22 centimetres) in the colours of your choice. One colour represents yourself, one represents God and one represents other people. Knot them together at one end. As you reflect on your relationship with God and with others plait the wool. Knot the end when you finish and, as you do so, say a prayer commending yourself and those you have thought about, to God's love.
