We’re now into our second three week period of lockdown, and for some of us this may be frustrating, particularly as we read of other countries who are beginning to relax their lockdown restrictions.
The bible encourages us to be thankful in all circumstances (note; not for all circumstances).And although life is more limiting than we would like, and is very difficult for some, there are many things for us to be thankful about this Tuesday morning. Here are just some of the things that occur to me;
The weather. We’ve been blessed over the past few weeks with lots of sunshine, so we have been able to enjoy our time outside – either in our gardens or our exercise trips, and children have been able to play outside.
Our community. It’s been great to see how folk are supporting each other locally, how many have supported the Buckden volunteer scheme, and how people are just generally relating to each other.
Friends and family. Although we have been unable to see each other, through phone, email skype etc we have perhaps kept in touch more than we might have done.
Our village shop, who have been great in supporting the community.
These are just some of the things that occur to me. Hopefully there are lots of other things for each of us to be thankful for today.
Have a good day.
