Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

Stickle_Ghyll_Panorama

My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Great Langdale B&W

He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

Great_Langdale_Panorama

indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

Old Barn

The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

Great Grey Owl

The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

Near Chapel Stile

the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Cricket

Being a supporter of the English Cricket team is always like being on a roller-coaster, (with many more downs than ups). Yesterday provided us with something to celebrate – winning back the Ashes. This is a fantastic achievement and one to savour, not only because of its rarity, but (as England will be going to Australia next year) because of its brevity too.

I’ve had great fun this summer playing cricket in the back garden with our eldest son. It’s only a matter of time though until a window gets broken!
