Wednesday Meditation
…with love from Audrey (Pastor Audrey Ward)

One afternoon on my walk through the neighborhood, two little girls—3 and 6 in age perhaps—were sitting in the sunshine on the pavement in their driveway having a tea party. I overheard the following conversation:

“Hey! Let’s betend this flower (as the 3 year old reached over and plucked a yellow weed from the crack in the cement) is a cookie…” Her playmate agreed and their tea progressed with a delicious pastry now included.
         
It made me think about pretending to have something we really would like to have and finding that kind of delight in dreaming it up. Just the simplicity of exercising our magnificent imaginations and allowing nothing to be something.
        
Of course, it’s not all that simple— delight —and becomes complicated by germs and money and time and space and what-next and why-now. But how about let’s just betend that it’s not all that complicated.
         
Just for today.

" God Will Make a Way " by Don Moen
In these days of social distance, we are called to meet apart.
Still we pray for one another, hold each other in our hearts.
If this time indeed is holy, we must keep it truly so.
Even in our isolation, God’s rich blessings overflow.
We avoid the world’s distractions, set our minds on things above:
Patience, kindness, goodness, mercy, faith, joy peace, abiding love.
