Yesterday morning (15th April) it was beautiful up on the hills and this view towards Rounday Hill always reminds me of the events of that first Easter.


There is a green hill far away outside a city wall ...


On that hill are three prominent trees that remind me of the three crosses of Golgotha.


In the foreground you might spy the barbed wire of the fence - Crown of Thorns.


The head that once was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory now ....



My isolation tree - still there.  Exposed to all those storms

and winds but standing firm.


Will your anchor hold in the storms of life, when the clouds unfold their wings of strife?


Standing on the path here the skylarks were singing their hearts out!  They had definitely risen from the ground and ascended to the skies!!


I couldn't see them but I could hear them - is there a story there?


All heaven declares the Glory of the risen Lord ...


When you're walking by yourself you can let your mind wander.  No conversation is necessary.  Time is irrelevant.  That was me yesterday morning.  It was too beautiful to hurry.  The four mile walk took me 2.5 hours but in that time I had the whole Waster story ... and more.


Thine be the glory risen conquering Son ...


Enjoy the Easter weekend.
