Easter seems to be approaching at alarming speed – is this really our fourth ‘Pause’?
One of the phrases in the Lent meditation which Floss & Jane gave us last month was
Fast from words that pollute;
Feast on phrases that glorify.
It is so easy to waste time reading unedifying trivia, isn’t it? [whether it is on the printed page, or the glowing screen!]

[I didn’t lift up the yellow notice – I should have done. What do you think the blue and white sign underneath said? Good News, perhaps?]
