This week’s notes are a series of poems inspired by members of the church prayerfully reflecting on what they can see through their front windows. You can either read the poem or watch the video which they have recorded to go with these notes.
Psalm 77:11-13 NIV
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”  Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?
As I look out of my window, what do I see
During these strange times, making history.
I look at the car, parked on the drive,
Its engine now silent, not loud and alive.
The garden, the sunshine, the plants starting to grow,
Our new neighbours across, we can now get to know.
Children, with parents on their daily stroll,
Some on bikes, some scooters as by us they roll
Past our house and on down the street
Into the park with no friends there to meet.
The birds can be heard, rejoicing so loud,
Saying in their world, there’s no virus cloud.
Doors bang and footsteps, the deliveries are here,
Be it the milkman, or food that we cheer.
Letters from loved ones, shh don’t make a sound
And mail order deliveries out there abound.
Yes, the times are strange, but there is chance to reflect
On the good things God’s given us, a time to connect
To the wonders of nature, the whispers of trees.
His love and His caring bring me to my knees.
Make some time to pause and meditate on God’s acts and gifts.
