Many of you may well have heard of the non-stop, very very wet winter parts of Britain have had since before Christmas.
No matter how bad things have been some things seem to press on, move forward, continue. Each day I look from my window for signs of growth - and they are there! Growth is important in all nature. It is good to look for growth in each other, signs of life, to encourage it, nurture and look forward with expectation.
One of my favourite Bible verses say 'I am come that you might have life in all abundance'.

This is a painting I did some years ago with abundance in mind.
