Photo was taken at Drishane, Millstreet, Co.Cork (Irl)

I took this photo about three years ago. Even today what strikes me is the bravery of the horse and rider. While this might seem a straight forward jump it is the drop down underneath that makes me admire their bravery. It is also a drop into a water jump.

Thought on Saturday – March – 27/03/2021

With all the recent beautiful spring sunshine and fine weather, the following prayer is appropriate as we move into the last few days of March.

A March prayer

Lord of the wind and the waves, calm the storms of our life when we are afraid.

Lord of the loaves and fishes, be our food when we are hungry.

Lord of spring, growth and new life, be our source of new beginnings.

Lord of the lambs and the flocks, seek us out when we are lost.

Lord of signs and wonders, show yourself when we have doubts.

Lord of the blind and lame, take our hand when we falter.

Lord of the fields and flowers, care for us when others seem far away.

Lord of all that lives, be a source of life when we’re struggling to be alive and active in our daily activities.

Lord of simplicity, help us to recognise your gentle presence in everything we do each day. Amen
