Throughout the Bible we read testimony of the Lord communicating to us in the skies, ocean waves, breeze rustling through the trees, fields and flowers, and birds that sing cheerfully. Jesus reassures us that our Father in the heavens always cares for the little sparrows and he cares for us (Matthew 6:26 and 10:29).
Nature reveals to us God’s beauty, glory, power, wisdom, presence, creativity, and, most of all, his loving care. This is why we’re drawn to spend time in the beauty of nature and to enjoy animals. To take a walk on a beautiful day, play with your dog in the grass, or hold your cat are reliable ways for many people to connect with God’s loving presence (taken from www.soulshepherding.org)
Here at St Teresa's church we are blessed with many talented individuals who make our church reflect the Glory of God by the floral displays they produce. But how has this changed during the lockdown....?

Easter Flowers. Can’t go to church. Thinking how can I arrange or even buy any !
Good Friday comes, I find some purple material from my sewing room. Delve in the garage and find the cross Alan made. Looked around my garden for leaves and dried thistles. Hence, an outdoor arrangement .
