Written a number of months ago –
“His name for ever shall endure; last like the sun it shall. ” (A line from Psalm 72 – Scottish Metrical Version)
I didn’t think I would be able to write much just now. But, after a walk of solitude one day (one government permitted exercise of the day) a few ponderings came to me. I am avoiding a certain topic on the basis of self preservation as it would only add to anxiety. I’m sure most readers know what I mean.
Anyway there is a huge network of woods near my house. I just went exploring and to make it truly a time of solitude avoided the beaten track for a large part of it.
Briefly I forgot I was in Edinburgh and felt as if I was back where the wild things grow.
Pondering 1 – The Castle: She stands longer than our mortal flesh, but shorter than our immortal souls.
Pondering 2 – The Legends: They also may stand for generations. But, in time they evolve or pass from memory.
Pondering 3 – The Car: Our impact both good and bad will have an impact for generations to come. Rust and decay will have it all. (Side note: We need to flatten more than one curve and go from climate distruction to climate sustainability). Ponderings 4 – Questions to consider:
What do we trust in?
The non – essentials now gone?
The essentials we now struggle to get?
The sustainer of life and souls?
Our worship or the one we worship? “His name for ever shall endure; last like the sun it shall. “
