On our journey today, the weather became too cold to carry on, so we stopped in for coffee with Fr David and Fr Sam, who were having their weekly catch-up.

It resonated with us, as we’ve recently completely given our will over to God! Still, these cold dark nights, when the going gets tough it is good for us to remember the “Yes” we gave to God at the start – and the joy and hope we have in that trust in God.

After the meeting came to a close we grabbed a few more biscuits for the road – Fr David and Fr Sam declined – something about having perfect figures for Christmas.
