As with most people I know, my life is a constant whirlwind. My days are filled with household duties, my job, my family, my friends and various other obligations. I sometimes feel overwhelmed by it all. But then, when I make the effort to slow down and notice the beauty of God’s creation, I remember how his presence and peace can so readily sur- round me.

I am blessed to live in a beautiful mountainous place that I enjoy exploring when I hike with my happy, energetic dog. One day, I noticed the moon in the daytime sky – though I had to look carefully to see it.    I started thinking: the moon is always there, whether we can see it or not. So it is with our God who is always here, watching over us, even when we do not particularly feel his presence.

Since that day, I often notice the moon in the daytime sky. It also seems that I see it more often when I’m feeling stressed, worried or sad. This became a reminder for me that God watches over me. It brings me comfort and peace and always makes me smile. Our loving God is here for us all, at this moment and always.

Prayer: Dear God, show us signs of your love today, and help us to see them. Amen

I am deaf with C.I. - basic BSL, want to learn more. Go to Bridgwater and Weston Super Mare signing church. Have met Gill several times. I think this is a wonderful!! My kind friend Astrid sent me this from Bristol - she has cycled round the world in 2 years - a magical feat! I found life difficult when becoming deaf and decided to make it more `visible` by making BSL jewellery. I have sold some and donate to BSL bible translation, so it is lovely to have this and I will tell my friends about it. JN
