Was hanging some washing on the line tonight, looked up and saw the moon, Venus, and the stars, so clearly, raced in and got my camera, sorry, handheld, but dinner was ready; Paul had made saag aloo, and boy, was it good. I am gobsmacked at the sky; this is within the huge Birmingham conurbation, you can see the orange light on the clouds, and yet I'd say the sky is about as clear here now as it usually is in Mourão.
Lent verse is one of my favourites, Micah 6v8:
He's already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbour,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don't take yourself too seriously - take God seriously.
Not huge sacrifices, not anything difficult, just three simple things - as another version puts it: act justly
walk humbly with your God...
the God who made the moon, the stars, and Venus, for our delight.
- the whole household working together today to do what needed doing, after a great brunch made by Sam
- virtual cocktail hour with Geoff and Hélène
- praying together every night at 9pm, not just us, lots of folk - tonight we thanked God for the good things in this whole terrible situation, like a clear sky
