For me, prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed towards heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trial as well as joy.

    A lovely cool start to a day which is going to be HOT again!

  2. Ginnie says:

    I so agree, Cherry!

    What a lovely photo you have to accompany your quote.

  4. Astrid says:

    What a wonderful picture with your thought. A “thank You” every morning and evening is my gratitude for being alive and have what we have…..

  5. Is that River Severn?!
    It look rather brown when I visited Ironbridge.

    I often thank Nature, as I don’t “do” God, although Nature may the “God”, I suppose… but then I often dislike Nature too, when I see how cruel it can be. I am confused…

    • CherryPie says:

      Nature is part of God as are you and I :-)

      • Andrew says:

        Well I will agree that we are all just part of the same big thing, whatever we choose to call it, and all much more mysteriously connected than the little parts like us can ever know.

        • Andrew says:

          My problem is not with the possibilities, my problem is with all the disparate but staunchly held beliefs in claimed and invented details about things we do not know.

          • CherryPie says:

            We just need to feel and tune into nature. Sit calm and reflecting in a cafe, on a beach, by a lake or river, on the top of a hill or just in or own cosy home place.

            Then we will know… It is not a belief, it is a feeling :-)

    Nature may be the “God”, I meant. Unfortunately typos are things I do “do”.
