April in January

Here on Tiree, today has felt more like April than January. There has been sunshine and showers, with definitely more sun than rain. You just could not resist the temptation to take the camera out for a walk. All of the views were taken within less than a quarter of an hour from home. The views out to sea are of ‘the Passage of Tiree’, the harbour is the old harbour at Scarinish, and the lochan (which I have named ‘loachan a nuadh’) is an addition to the landscape. It has been one of these days when the heart is drawn out in worship –
“Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
how great thou art, how great Thou art!

The heart is filled with gratitude to God that he has brought us to live in the Hebrides, so close to the sea (less than 200 yards) and amidst such breathtaking scenery. How true are the words of the hymn:
How good is the God we adore!
Our faithful, unchangeable friend.
His love is as great as his power
and knows neither measure nor end.”

As usual a mouse-over on a photograph will reveal the title, and a click will produce a slideshow of larger photographs.
