A Globe of Gold

The weather is so beautiful and this Spring is so exquisite that I just have to quote Thomas Traherne  the 17th century Poet & Mystic

“Heaven! is not that an Endless Sphere
Where all thy Treasures and thy Joys appear?
If that be Heaven it is Evrywhere

Heaven surely is a State and not a Place
To be in Heaven’s to be full of Grace
Heaven is wherever we see God’s face.”

Taking a walk by a lake today all I could hear was the birds.  I felt the warm sun on my face and the soft breeze blowing through the trees was so welcome.  A confused woodpecker was pecking at a flagpole on top of the old manor house and the ducks were swimming purposefully to distract me from their nests.   Just metres away in one direction was the new ASDA superstore and in the other was the litter strewn A40.  But for 10 minutes I was in a sacred space and I could see God’s face.
