6.2.23: Wherever I look

After writing “Bad dreams”, I had a complete day off yesterday, which included a bit of dancing, some carefully time-limited gardening, and a lot of sleeping!

Some time ago I started to notice how many crosses there are everywhere. I see them in the woodwork of buildings, when road-signs happen to align, on pavements, in shadows, and in all sorts of unexpected places. At one time, I tried to photograph them, but didn’t succeed, as it is my eyes which pick them out and my brain which welcomes them, rather than a camera lens, which just shows a collection of objects. Anyway, these serendipitous sightings of crosses are the starting-place for today’s prayer:

I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20; NLT).

Wherever I look, I see the cross
Where Christ was crucified,
Reminding me of his despair,
His pain, and how he died.

Wherever I go I try to spread
The love he came to give,
Because he died for everyone,
So all may fully live.

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10; NLT).

Here is a rosary I made a day or two ago, now completed, ready to wrap and deliver. I wish it were mine!
