Rejoicing does not mean we have forgotten, far from it! This weekend last year was the time of the Cheltenham Races and other weekend sporting events which resulted in a massive spread of the COVID-19 virus - which was already among us. All too soon the first lockdown occurred.
Let us not forget to pray for those sadly affected by this illness or by the tragic loss of family and friends.
May they receive a ‘word of encouragement' from us, a word of sympathy and perhaps an ‘arrow’ prayer, as we go about our daily lives.
