Reflections, 23 March

Our Session Clerk, Diane has written our reflection for today…

Waking early this morning, looking from my window to a garden bursting with new life in spring, across a very still river to the hills and way up to the Trossachs, everything looks well. But it’s not. Life today will be very different from this time last week – the world has changed and we’re all struggling as we find ways to adapt.

As I look out, I see changes in the garden reminding me that nature is still at work, the sun still sets at night and rises again in the morning. I think of the words from one of my favourite hymns:

I the lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I have made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall i send?
Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go Lord
If You lead me

God is at work among us – in the beauty of his creation, in all the acts of kindness where people help one another. Take time to pause, look for God’s blessings and see how you could be a blessing on someone today.
