To call it a ‘fair’ is probably overstating it. It was my friend selling her craft in her garden with no more than six people present at any one time. As one person came, one of the group left. After months of isolation it was great to sit in her garden with the sun shining down on us. Around us in her small garden were the flowers and butterflies and bees joining in the party.
How lovely it was was to see people without their masks. We could see each other’s faces, recognise what they were saying and see their mouths smiling. In the past I had never appreciated these things. We read in the Bible that God made us to be in families. As the past few months have shown this is not always possible, but let us appreciate our families and friends and be with them when we can. We can also pray for them as they are sure to need our prayers whatever their circumstances.
