get up, it’s Easter morning
the One you loved
is waiting in the garden
His empty tomb
is guarded by an angel
who will tell you
that Christ the Lord is risen.
Martha welcomed you to her house.
She gave you food to eat.
And while she fed your body,
Mary sat at your feet.
Lord, you welcome us to your house.

THE QUIET PLACES
Show me the quiet places Lord,
Where I can find your peace.
Take me beyond the noisiness
of life’s relentless beat.

Half Moon Bay, Black Rock. Cliffs surround sand and sea making an amphitheatre. An experience whatever the season. A family place for summer days.
