SETTLING IN ON A SATURDAY March 28, 2020
Nobody has hollered at me yet that they missed yesterday’s reflection, but if you did, it’s because I didn’t post one!
It was a busy day of dealing with a few special needs, including a couple of food pantry requests, and trying to master the technology to prerecord our Sunday worship. Got all that done about 4 o’clock, and then Sue and I headed for the woods.
I almost feel guilty about posting this, because I know that many people are not in a position to take advantage of them, but I want to share how profoundly grateful I am for the incredible riches we have in this area when it comes to beaches, sand dunes, nature preserves and parks that are available to the public. Some free of charge, others at minimal cost.
I am reminded how right Psalm 19 is:
The heavens are telling the glory of God,
and the firmament proclaims God’s handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
And I am grateful that for now, at least, the Governor’s Executive Order provides an exception: “Individuals may leave their home or place of residence, and travel as necessary: 1. To engage in outdoor activity, including walking, hiking, running, cycling, or any other recreational activity consistent with remaining at least six feet from people from outside the individual’s household.”
Now if the rain would just quit so I could get my bicycle out!
Grace and peace to you all…
