Hello friends,

Often June is the time of year when we start thinking about going on holiday, visiting family and day trips. Having three children I know the joys and challenges that car journeys can be. The question “are we there yet?” begins as you just emerge out of the village; the fighting in the back seats over who has the most room; the cry of “I need a wee!” as you just pull back onto the motorway after an hours stop at the services and having asked 3 times if anyone needs to go to the toilet! And that’s not to mention the traffic jams in the heat of the day and the Satnav that navigates you to a river and expects you to drive across it.

I have often thought about that journey that Noah and his family (and a whole host of animals) went on. I’m sure on that boat there were cries of “are we there yet?” and an argument or two, and I bet Noah too doubted the journey God was sending him on. The Noah’s Ark story reminds us that we are all on a journey; a life journey, a journey that will be both physical and mentally challenging. Noah was mocked for building an Ark, yet it was those on the Ark that survived the great flood. Noah had to keep his wits about him and navigate his way through some very tricky paths no doubt, and the journey ahead wasn’t very clear.

Often journeys can lead us to unexpected places, and we can find ourselves somewhere where we didn’t think we would end up. Sometimes we know the place that we are journeying to, but often the path that we take to get there isn’t what we expected as there are diversions and other distractions! My mum is notorious for going off route when she sees a sign for a garden centre; as a child this often resulted in me and my brother having plants sat on our laps the rest of the car journey…but these plants still grow in her garden today and she remembers the journey that we were on when we found them.

Enjoy the journeys that you take this month wherever they may lead you.

With blessings
