Good morning everyone,
Here we are at the start of another week with its blank page to begin writing on.
Today's quotation's come about because, yesterday, I'm sure many of you will have noticed that things got a little heated around here.
Our lovely oasis of calm, and raft on a stormy sea, turned into a maelstrom of controversial opinion.
And it's not what we are about here. The clue is in the title of our community. It's meant to be a haven and a help for anyone who has struggled or is struggling with the realities of coronavirus and the pandemic.
There are many forums which can be visited to express more forthright views but this is not meant to be one of them.
Could we maybe stretch out a metaphorical hand of friendship to each other this morning and return to our little island of calm?
Here's my contribution to that, a verse from the hymn, Let There Be Peace On Earth:
"Let peace begin with me.
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment and live each moment, in peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me."
Have a happy week everyone. 🙏
