Our Minister’s thought for the Day

Dedicated to the Church of Scotland congregation of Kirkmichael, Tinwald and Torthorwald

Dear Friends

Our access to the telephone line has come to an end but we will continue to email the reflection each week .

Sunday 9th June 

Dear Friends

We  meet today at Tinwald where we will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism at 9.45 followed by tea, coffee and fellowship.

If the mountain seems too big today
then climb a hill instead;
If morning brings you sadness
it’s okay to stay in bed.
If the day ahead feels heavy and your plans feel like a curse,
There’s no shame in rearranging,
don’t make yourself feel worse.
If a shower stings like needles
and a bath feels like you’ll drown;
If you haven’t washed your hair for days,
don’t throw away your crown!
A day is not a lifetime.
A rest is not defeat.
Don’t think of it as failure,
Just a quiet, kind retreat.
It’s okay to take a moment
From an anxious, fractured mind.
The world will not stop turning
While you get realigned!
The mountain will still be there
When you want to try again
You can climb it in your own time,
Just love yourself till then! ✨

Love & prayers

Mhairi
