Mid Afternoon Meditation 3-29-20

Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers his covenant forever,
    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
    the oath he swore to Isaac.
Psalm 105: 5-9

How are God’s miracles and judgments related?

And So I Turned Right

On most days at 3,

I step out my front door

To do my duty.

My little dogs go ahead.

They know the usual way.

We turn left, then left

At the Summer Street signpost.

Down to the white house.

Tip our hats to our friend Pearl.

The lady who smokes outside.

Pandemic days come

And turn the world upside down.

Pearl stays inside now.

The Summer Street sign is gone,

Inexplicably just gone.

And so I turned right,

Yesterday instead of left.

I went to the park.

Empty space. Social distance.

It’s a new experience.

Mid Afternoon Meditation 3-26-20

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.
 Psalm 105:1-4

What does seeking God’s face look like today?
