Thought for the Day, March 20, 2020

Posted by Traci Smith on

Thought for the day: This present moment. Yesterday, I plunked out some hymns on the piano. I’ve not taken piano lessons in years, and I can only really do the treble clef, but my phone was off, the news was off, and I was fully present with the music. The hymn I was plunking out was “Let All Things Now Living.” It goes like this: 


“Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving

To God the creator triumphantly raise.

Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,

Who guided us on to the end of our days.

His banners are o'er us, His light goes before us,

A pillar of fire shining forth in the night.

'Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished

As forward we travel from light into light.” 


I noticed something: as I was fully present with the music, all my concerns vanished. What are you doing to stay in this present moment? It will help you, in these challenging times.  

Love in Christ, Pastor Traci
