    18 October 2015 – Recycling

    Saviour and Lord of all,
    I look at this pot and suddenly I see
    That you have saved me
    From being lost and wasted.

    In this pot,
    I can see all the fragments of
    Discarded wood
    Saved and placed together like a jigsaw
    Made into a
    Remarkable piece of Art.
    It won’t hold water,
    But it is lovely to look at and it has been
    saved from destruction.

    Although I have not been cobbled together,
    My genes have been inherited
    From many different parts of my family
    And I am recognisable to them
    By familiar looks and expressions.
    Yet, what is even more remarkable
    I am myself.
    Filled with the spark of Life
    Which is your gift to all living things:
    How amazing it is-
    I am unique.

    Again, I look at the pot and realise
    That it will provide shelter for the tiny
    Creatures inhabiting the garden.
    A new purpose.

    As our lives progress, Saviour,
    They too change purpose on occasion;
    We look and see you use us differently
    And we are
    Glad!

    Not recycled in the way of the pot,
    But offered new opportunities to be
    The unique children
    You created us to be.
    Thanks be to God
    For saving us.

    Amen                       Hazel Parsons
