"February brings the rain,
thaws the frozen lake again"
thus goes the ditty about the weather, but as we all know, February, or March or even April can bring the SNOW - so we can't assume anything. In this life we have to be ready for anything, so planning or anticipating can take a knock as the unexpected can take us by surprise. In the Bible we are encouraged to take one day at a time. In the Lord's prayer - 'Give us this day our daily bread', in Joshua 'Choose you this day who you will serve', in Exodus, the manna came down enough for each day, and we read in the psalms many references to 'today', including 'Today, if you hear His voice, harden not your hearts', and 'This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it'. So many references to each day And we can say together 'New every morning are His mercies' as we rise to meet a new day.
The new season of 'It's Monday' has begun with our celebration of seventeen years and we will all miss Ivor and Clare Hancock who have now moved to Berkhamsted. Our thanks for all they have been to us while living at Little Wymondley for the past seven years. We wish them every happiness in their new home and surroundings.
We meet, rain or shine, every Monday, door open at 10.30am. Refreshments and a varied programme. New members most welcome.
Tuesday, is the day we meet for prayer at Diana Foster's (Wymondley Hall Farm) at 2pm - except on the first week when it is at 7.30pm. Tuesday 5th February - Coffee and Discussion at The Orange Tree with Will and Lynne Andrews from 10.30am.

Our prayers are with all who are poorly at this time and for all mourning and missing loved ones. We pray too for our country. At special times in our history there have bee national days of prayer and there is such a day in London on January 26th at Wembley Arena.
