Filey Parish People blog in Holy Week Monday (3) :Audrey Lakin

Audrey has sent us a reading for every day this week from the Mothers Union's  Muriel Kerridge M.U. Faith and Policy representative.

They will post every afternoon  this week. Thanks Audrey and love to your daughter and Noah!

Monday:

    a time of giving and receiving...

With this gift of Holy Week
we give to the Lord the garden of our lives;
ready to receive his tending of it.

We make ourselves open for him
to clear the debris amassed over time –
the dead works, the lurking selfishness,
the long grass of doubt and disappointment.

We give to the Lord our trust in his nurture;
ready to receive his fruitful plantings.
We give him our thanks for his loving attention
and accept the gift of intimacy with Christ. 

With this gift of Holy Week
let us walk in faith through the garden of our lives
growing ever closer to Christ, through the love of the Father.

Jesus said: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.”      John 15:1
