   Monkhill Chapel newsletter 3rd April 2021    3 April, 2021
Hello everyone and a very Happy Easter to you all.
Hope you are enjoying the lovely sunny weather this Easter weekend so far. Make the most of it, as apparently it is set to reverse to "winter" although not sure when.
Not much to pass on this time so I thought I would keep it all 'personal'.
Angela informs me she has been in hospital but is home again after a short stay and is feeling much better. Let's pray she continues in better health.
Mary Reeve, or mum to me, has celebrated another birthday this Easter. I'll not say exactly which one but she is now starting her 99th innings! We thank God she keeps so well and cheerful.
She was waiting for a phone call later this afternoon from one of her contemporaries (maybe the only other!) namely Mary Carr, mother of Jean Wharton, originally from Grinsdale and now
living in Barn Close Care Home. They went to school together all those years ago so wonderful that they are able to keep in touch occasionally.
Mum is always amazed at how many birthday cards she receives as we are such a small family. Of course this year, they have been mixed with Easter cards including a lovely one with spring
lambs on from Monkhill Chapel that she was delighted to get. This Easter card was also sent to various friends associated with the Chapel to let them know we are thinking of them at this
special time of year. I have already had a telephone message left by Val Holmes thanking the Chapel for her card.
Now hope you are not eating too many Easter eggs! We've been enjoying mum's birthday "Simnel" cake given to her by her god-daughter.
I'll leave you with a poem appropriate for the time of year. I'm sure you'll know it----
        Spring Song
    The year's at the spring
    And day's at the morn;
    Morning's at seven;
    The hillside's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in His heaven—
    All's right with the world!
                            Robert Browning
Until next time, stay safe and well,
