Our cold January mornings have been cheered by the brilliant light of the sun reflecting off the water in front of our home. I’m reminded each morning of God’s mercies being new every morning. No matter what our difficulties, God promises to rise with healing in his wings. (Malachi)
The sun shining in our windows give added warmth to our front rooms. It brings an invitation to venture out for a walk or work in the garden, instead of lingering under the bedclothes. The shoots of snowdrops and daffodils are already appearing above ground.
Today is different. The ferry between Portaferry and Strangford is suspended due to fog over Strangford Lough. The chill is not dispersed by brilliant light today.
