And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,  are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.  For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.– 2 Corinthians 3: 18 We’ve finally begun to enjoy a little of what might be called ‘Spring’ here on Arran with quite a number of dry sunny days in a row!  A little bit of sunshine transforms the surroundings, especially at Sannox, into something quite glorious.
