As we came back to the sad sight of fallen and broken trees in our beautiful Forest School, it reminds us that the road forward isn’t always straight and easy. We will have to clear and then plan to rebuild but as always we will do it cheerfully and with enthusiasm. Someone told me of a phrase they heard in church this Christmas which I thought was really fitting for everyone who has suffered from the storms and who has other real challenges at the moment:

 “God didn’t build canals he created rivers!”-life is rarely straight forward but its highs and lows, twists and turns make life more interesting and challenging.
