You might be forgiven for wondering why the monks of Kirkstall Abbey chose the spot for their monastery, as it is now swallowed up in the urban busyness of Leeds. Hundreds of years ago though, it would have been a tranquil, rural estate nestled alongside the River Aire. Even today, a few steps away from the visitor centre, amid the trees beside the river, it is a little green oasis of peace, with just a few jackdaws to keep you company.
This seemed a good photo on which to meditate on a Sunday.
'He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He refreshes my soul.'
May your day be peaceful and your soul be refreshed today.
