A few weeks ago I baptised a lovely little baby called Freddie and today when I returned from a few days away this card was waiting on the door mat. It was from Freddie's mum thanking me for the care I take in such things and also thanking me for their wedding which I conducted four years ago. Things like that warm my heart and make me rejoice that I am a (retired) vicar.
Seventy six years ago as this week my parents were married. I know I've shared this photo before but I love it. Things like that make me rejoice that I come from a loving family and had a secure childhood.
