Mary Magdalene – a sonnet for her day, 22 July

Mary Magdalene: A Sonnet

Men called you light so as to load you down,
And burden you with their own weight of sin,
A woman forced to cover and contain
Those seven devils sent by Everyman.
But one man set you free and took your part
One man knew and loved you to the core
The broken alabaster of your heart
Revealed to Him alone a hidden door,
Into a garden where the fountain sealed,
Could flow at last for him in healing tears,
Till, in another garden, he revealed
The perfect Love that cast out all your fears,
And quickened you with love’s own sway and swing,
As light and lovely as the news you bring.

Malcolm Guite

Is it time or too late?

This year was hectic so I decided not to make a calendar but on turning the last page of the 2016 Calendar, I thought I would miss it so I sat down and worked hard.
Some friends were really pleased, they too, had thought they would miss it.

It may seem out of date to have a paper calendar but I remember many years ago missing an important appointment and the elderly and wise man I had let down telling me You have a calendar, you write in it and you put it where you take your meals.

Then of course it has to be beautiful!
