This morning I listened to the 'dawn chorus' It made a beautiful and uplifting start to the day.

Yesterday I made a 'Prayer Box' and began putting into it on slips of paper names of people and causes I wish to remember before God on these testing days.

Before breakfast today I sang a Easter hymn The last two verses were :

Author of all, be thou our guide
in this our joyful Eastertide.
Whene'er assaults of death impend,
thy people strengthen and defend.

To thee who, dead, again dost live,
all glory Lord thy people give:
all glory as is ever meet,
to Father and to Paraclete

Alleluia! The Lord has risen as he promised. Alleluia!

Be intent on prayer and whatever happens will turn out for our good.
