Thought For The Week 29 October

Green shoots….. As we near the end of spring we celebrate God’s creation once again in the beauty of the green shoots popping through the ground, on the trees and shrubs, along with the budding roses and so many beautiful flowers we see everywhere.

Thought For The Week 24 September
