Pastor’s Pondering 03/24/2021


For Eleanor

What does “practice” mean?

It means to do something new,

And then do it again,

Trying to get better.

And then it means to use

That thing you have learned to do,

In everyday life.

Now here’s a new word: RESILIENCE.

It means to overcome problems,

To get well,

It means to get up when you fall down,

It means to stretch when you are pulled,

And become wiser than you were before.

We all need to learn resilience.

We ALL need to practice getting well,

And practice getting up when we fall down,

And practice stretching high and low and all around,

Because the best

Is yet to come.
