Greetings from the Manse,

 We have just been on a blustery walk to Dalkeith Country Park. We all pulled ourselves away from the house, wrapped up and ventured out.
 
" You never regret a walk" I reminded the kids, " Oh yes you do" they replied, reminding me of various walks that ended in disaster.
 
Today's walk was the usual mix of some great chat, the odd moan and muddy feet.  
 
The Christian walk is one that takes us to places of beauty but can also be one of simple endurance. Isn't it good to know that we do not walk alone but Jesus walks with us, it may not always be an easy walk, but it is one that we absolutely will never regret. 
 
We so miss being together for Church we pray that it will not be too long before we can come together again.
