Thought for the day 10 April

How are you coping with the slightly eased restrictions? Feeling relieved that you can do a bit more, or frustrated about the things you still can’t do? Hard as it is having to wait, there’s no benefit in wishing away the next 3 weeks (or longer, depending on what you want to do). Maybe try to find some way to make each day special – and keep an eye on those who are struggling, in case they need some help and support

Lord, things don’t happen at the pace we would like, and we find that hard to cope with. Equally we don’t want all the hardships of the last year to be in vain because we let our guard down too quickly. Help us to cope with waiting – even though we feel frustrated – and help us to be ready to offer support and assistance to others who are struggling
