It’s the evening of Tues 15th April, and it has been such a beautiful day with sunshine practically all day, but still cool in the shade. I was out in the back garden weeding and watering most of the evening. I love watering as the evening draws in and the sun starts to edge towards the horizon. I find it’s a time where I reflect a lot on God, nature, creation, something I read somewhere or the Scripture reading of the day. Because I am leading a Prayer Service tomorrow, I was actually thinking about the Gospel Reading for tomorrow and what I might say about it in my Reflection.
The peace and quiet was interrupted at intervals by birdsong here and there. At some stage, I realized there was one particular song which was soaring high above all the others, and it had been going on for a while. I looked up but could not see any particular bird, so I walked round to the front of the house – and there it was, a thrush, on a tv aerial, singing his heart out. I just had to try to capture some of it. (Be sure to turn the sound up high) Enjoy!
