Friday photo – ever open doors

HI Door

I never had an opportunity to ask the Vicar of Holy Island why there were two big holes in the outside doors but I imagine it was to let the nesting swallows fly in and out at will. Thus while the door may have been shut to us as we walked up late in the evening, they were ever open for the birds of the air that Jesus suggests we consider as we think about how God cares for us (Matt 6.26). One of the swallows joined the Eucharist one day – a living reminder of what God’s word says, their beauty and grace evoking wonder in me as I sat praying and waiting to receive the bread and the wine.
