Gentle and Mighty

Roaming the world, and beyond

I’d like to go to deserts and see the sand dunes shift. I’d like to visit jungles, and on the ocean drift. I’d love to see an iceberg, and polar bears – not near! …

A yellow world

She felt like vigorously colouring in, some energetic pressing back and forth, and filling in, not delicately shading different colours in, and proudly finished and presented – a yellow rainbow, yellow cloud …

Learning of Christ

[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series] Through ages men devised, a spectrum of belief – … Preoccupied, and rare to show compassion, love, for others’ needs to care and help, assistance give. But when of Christ they hear, and see compassion real, so many vile things disappear as like concern they feel. … And women gain respect, not treated as mere slaves …

But if you do good to someone

Posted on Sat, 03 Apr 2021

But if you do good to someone not used to giving in return, you may encourage them to realise they could, should, and would benefit really by so doing, or doing so themselves to someone needy! Rhiannon (and who can tell what's wasted, ultimately...

I usually have to come back

Posted on Thu, 11 Feb 2021

I usually have to come back to your writing and check what others have said, too, as, like Di, I'm usually unsure of where it is going part of the way, though usually rereading clarifies more.

I like the connection flitting between the...

Posted on Sat, 03 Oct 2020

It's a hard step to return, isn't it? Go on praying. And the Lord knows all that he is thinking at the present time, and all his confusion. When my youngest was young he had Asperghers, and we often both got exasperated and frustrated. Nowadays...

So sorry for your sad

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

So sorry for your sad memories, Jenny. I'm sure your mother would have been devastated in her sadness if she'd been able to realise the long-term anguish it would cause you. But I think you have many happy memories of her before that overtook her...

It's an interesting idea for examining emotions and prejudices etc in a very unusual convoluted, invented situation! Rhiannon

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2020

My reaction was 'Poor Penelope'. A bit like realising the unhappiness and friendlessness of most bullies. I remember realising from what my primary school son was saying that the children were egging this bully in their midst on, and I knew...

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020

It's so easy to get in a whirl of busyness that you don't notice the beauties around, nor take time for the lonely who can't be so busy, or are trying to help others. I had always wondered why the beech hedges kept their dead leaves in winter too...

I haven't been out to look

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

I haven't been out to look this year, but at others, found so many of the 'Mother's Day cards' in the shops seemed to be artificial, and not realisitic for many of the ups and downs of family life.

My mother is no longer alive, and in...

Posted on Wed, 12 Feb 2020

Your writing is always very concentrated, and bubbling, I think, with metaphors, of which I'm probably not catching all! But I read this as hoarding a hope inside that you protect from attack, but aren't too sure you could really explain??...

Posted on Sun, 26 Jan 2020

It sounds a lovely haunt to revisit anyway, weather good or bad ( though beware of cliffs when the weather is bad!)

I remember in Snowdonia my youngest son (who had Asperghers) running on some rocks with glee and his slightly older brother...
