How wonderful that we could meet
Friends old and new, to smile and greet
With hugs and laughter all day long
To walk with God through prayers and song.
God sent the sun to shine that day
So we could go outside to play.
Coffee and biscuits, what a start
Then morning worship touched the heart.
Inspiring thoughts that made us wonder
Then time for us to sit and ponder.
Or wander outside with our thoughts
Or do some art, such diverse sorts.
A picnic lunch, each brought their own
But ate together, not alone.
Then more inspiring words of action
To make us think what we could act on.
Some friendly chatting ends the day
Followed by time to sit and pray.
Then Eucharist for those who could
In nearby church, which was so good
An altogether lovely day
With talks and songs and time to play
What could be better? I do not know
We all had time for faith to grow
