Thought for Week

Even if you’re little, you can do a lot, you mustn’t let a little thing like little stop you’ ~from the musical Matilda

It is amazing how the weather can be such a topic of conversation. It is great this weekend that we can all finally enjoy some lovely dry sunny weather. It is also such a welcome break for our farming community too. They will be so busy these days catching up on jobs that were on hold for so long because of the weather.

It is true how the weather can influence our mood and this weekend we can allow our spirts lift and get outdoors to feel the beauty of spring unfold all around. It reminds me of the musical ‘Matilda’ and one of its key songs is called ‘When I Grow Up’ and at its heart is a wish to be positive, upbeat and that nothing is impossible if we truly believe that it will happen.

But for many people it’s the little things that become the stumbling blocks. In our Gospel stories Jesus is the one who constantly helped people remove the obstacles that stopped people living their lives to the full. We worry about all that happened yesterday and what will happen tomorrow and forget all that today has to offer.

We often say it’s the little things that matter and they do. The invitation is to allow them to become stepping stones to appreciating the beauty of the present moment.  Life can so often be complicated and difficult. The little moments get squashed and trampled upon. This week is a lovely opportunity to reclaim and celebrate the smaller moments of your life. It is dropping the letter t in I can’t to leave I can!
