A Taste of Heaven

Magnolias at Lanhydrock, Cornwall

The last time I saw the magnolias in full bloom at Lanhydrock, was on a crisp March morning. The ground was strewn with large white, cream and delicate pink petals and visitors were tiptoeing around and whispering, as if they were in a cathedral and God was present. But of course He was - and is!

We have a home in heaven, but God is also with us now. The assurance of His presence, surrounded by His love, is life-changing. Peace reigns.

”the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21
