Lenten thoughts



Into the dark world
a snowdrop comes,
a blessing of hope and peace
carrying within it a green heart:
symbol of God’s renewing love.
Come to inhabit our darkness, Lord Christ,
for dark and light are alike to you.
May nature’s white candles of hope
remind us of your birth
and lighten our journey
through Lent and beyond.

Lovely poem Liz. Think I know the author - same name as the Minister who did the address at my Grandmother's funeral in Cambridge in 1989! Small world!
