MEDITATION:

Here are two pieces to help on a difficult day for so many.

Lord, we give you thanks for the gift of tears

For tears of grief, redeeming our mourning from despair

For tears of anger, awakening our thirst for justice

For tears of laughter, celebrating our joy in living.

 

May the light of Christ, shining through our tears

Become the rainbow of your promise

Shedding colours of your love’s bright presence

In your grieving, struggling, laughing world.

                                                 Author unknown

 

Time is too slow for those who wait

Too swift for those who fear

Too long for those who grieve

Too short for those who rejoice

But for those who love, time is eternity.

                                    Henry Van Dyke (1852-1933)

 

May the nations know peace and each one know calmness and light.

MEDITATION:

Bonfire Night has become a tradition in many of our villages. I remember taking my godsons to Barrowden when they were small and because they are French it was a very different experience for them. They enjoyed the hotdogs with tomato sauce smeared all over their smiling faces. We watched the different fireworks and stood round the fire until the heat was too much!

 

I have always liked sparklers, moving them round to make trails in the air and holding them carefully with a little bit of delighted fear when they reached their end. There were the Catherine wheels which always seemed to detach from the fence my father had so carefully nailed them to and they would lie on the ground spinning happily! The rockets and those which went into the sky gave a wonderful display of colour. And there were always those that simply dwindled to nothing!

 

Life is a bit like fireworks. Sometimes it just goes along steadily like a sparkler with highs and lows moulded into each other. At other times we can become detached from others and be sad and disappointed. But there are times when life bursts upon us and is colourful and exciting.

 

It is Jane’s funeral on Monday and her life burst upon all those who met her. She was not afraid of dying knowing that she would burst into the bright light of her Saviour. As we live our lives we need to remember the light that came into the world. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world and am with you always”. We have never needed that light more.

 

God bless
