Thought for the day 27 February


Sort of typical isn’t it: Friday was lovely and sunny, Monday and Tuesday are supposed to be good weather, but at the weekend it’s cloudy and wet. How often does that happen? But life’s a bit like that. There are many things, like the weather, that we can’t control. We just have to get on with life and make the most of it. We can change our plans, find new things to do, put up with the disappointments – or sit around and complain. Even if we are ‘positive-thinkers’ there are probably plenty of people that we know who need some encouragement to work around the disappointments and bring some positivity back into life


Lord, we need rain and we need sun, and sometimes they come at times that don’t suit us. Help us not to sit around complaining about that, but get on with life in spite of it. Help us to help others who are struggling with things they can’t control, which stop them doing what they would like (whether that means weather, health, coronavirus-related restrictions or whatever), and who are feeling ‘down’. Help us too to remember those who either long for rain, or who are suffering from the after-effects of too much rain, with attendant flooding


PS Next Friday (5  March) is the World Day of Prayer. There will not be a local service this year, but there will be a national online one on Zoom at 2pm. If you would like to be part of that, contact Ian Johnson or Susan Anderson, and they will send you the link
