Signs of hope,signs of spring Friday 5

It has been a difficult week here in Dowham Market, and yet in the sadness there have been signs of real hope, young people, often criticised have shown us how caring and amazing they are. It has also been a strange week; it snowed for almost the first time this winter, and yet many of the spring bulbs are blooming, and the trees are blossoming!

I believe that if we look carefully we can see signs of hope all around us.... as for signs of spring... well you tell me....

Bluebells in my garden, before the snow!

What have you seen/ heard this week that was a :

1. Sign of hope?



2. An unexpected word of light in a dark place?


3. A sign of spring?


4. Challenging/ surprising?


5. Share a hope for the coming week/month/year....


Bonus play... a piece of music/ poem guaranteed to cheer you?
