As they say, be careful what you wish for! The rain came and in torrents, most of which came through my bedroom ceiling.
Thankfully there are other bedrooms here and the external problem has already been resolved. It just needs to be assessed by the insurers and we can begin the repairs.
On another note entirely, we are having another poetry evening and Cecelia Rhodes has asked me to forward the following note:
After a very pleasant (if small) poetry gathering earlier in the month, another is proposed at 7pm on Monday June 22nd. All are welcome and there is no prescribed theme. A wide variety of poems is encouraged!
In order to make the most of the poems to be shared it has been suggested that participants could email poet and name of poem (up to 2 short or one longer ) in advance to Cecelia on firstname.lastname@example.org
by Saturday noon, so that she can circulate the list in order for people to have chance to look at the selection before we meet. (Anyone not wanting to choose and read a poem but keen to share the session is most welcome ….just let Cecelia have your email address).
We enjoyed it last time - welcome this time.
Let’s continue to remember in our prayer today all those who care for the sick and all our frontline workers:
Joseph, Lisa, Patrick, Chris, Catherine, Anne, Terry, Mark, Theo, Clare, Richard, Anthony, Jane, James, Andrew, Mary, Francis, Ruth, Tony, Sue, Dan, Fiona, Katy. Ian & Bethany
Let us also remember those who have lost their jobs or are in danger of doing so - these are more than anxious times for many people
St Joseph the Worker, pray for us
