Happy weekend, everyone! Take your time to wake up slowly this morning. At times in today's fast paced world, our lives can begin to feel too chaotic. Instead of rushing around hectically, we encourage you to try to be more mindful and approach each day with a clear view. Be more conscious of what is going on around you and take the time to appreciate it. Really slow down and notice your surroundings. You may be surprised at how much joy such small things will bring.
The Wahaca chilli seeds are progressing well. We have about 12 of these growing at the moment in the tunnel along with various other chilli types. This change in weather is not great for these sun worshippers.
Slow growing Aubergines still going strong. Fingers crossed these can soon be moved from the poly tunnel to the plot in the next few weeks. Have had to bring a lot back in the house due to minus conditions tonight.
✨home grown✨ really want to try and use home grown as much as I can this year. I don’t have a huge garden but want to give it a go and grow as much as I can. Nothing more satisfying then heading to the garden and making something from what you’ve grown yourself. I’m starting off by sowing some coffee seeds to give coffee plants a go☕️🌱 #coffeeplant#coffee#coffeetime
Contractor of the week: Alex Butler; .The Butlers go with contracting, the same way ham and cheese are partnered. It is simply all they know, though it is not all Alex Butler does.
The young contractor helps run the family-run Ken Butler Agri from his native Westmeath with his father, Ken, who set up the company over twenty years ago. This is not where the agricultural ties end either.

Reflection for the Fifth Sunday in Lent
The first reading this Sunday looks forward to a new covenant between God and his people. This covenant will not be written on stone, but on human hearts. This new covenant cannot be broken since God always forgives and never remembers our sins. It is in our hearts that we learn the truth about the strength of God’s love for us and recognise ourselves as God’s beloved people.
There is a lovely phrase in the preface of Eucharistic Prayer for Reconciliation I which captures this sense: You have bound the human family to yourself through Jesus your Son, our Redeemer, with a new bond of love so tight that it can never be undone.
The words of John’s Gospel help answer the question about how this covenant is made. God’s love is revealed in a weak and suffering human being through whom God offers his own life as the pledge of love and forgiveness which seals this new covenant.
When some Greeks come asking to see Jesus he knows his preaching is complete and that ‘the hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified’. Unless the grain of wheat dies, it remains all alone. If it dies it yields a ‘rich harvest’. Jesus’ death yields a rich harvest of followers with whom he is always present. We are not left to make the journey from temptation to transfiguration alone.
On that journey Jesus is our constant companion. He is the way by which we get from one to the other. Faith in (seeing) Jesus, draws us out of temptation and into transfiguration – to be the living presence of God in the world, the meeting places between human need and God’s compassion, to be light and life for one another.
If we, too, ‘want to see Jesus’ we must look into our own hearts. It is there that God writes his law of love in the person of his Son. It is there that we discover the presence of One who loves us beyond death and who gently refashions us into the image and likeness of his Son.
