This morning I’m digging into one of my favorite activities – writing some Bible reading notes. This will be a set for Inspiring Women Every Day, for the month of November 2015, on the theme of foreigners and strangers. After the Garden of Eden, we’re all strangers now. Here’s a little poem I wrote as I reflected on Psalm 137. Do you feel foreign?
By the rivers we sat By the water we wept Water rushing by Tears upon our face Zion we remembered Jerusalem, our home On the trees our harps No songs to sing But our captors demanded Our tormentors said to sing “Sing us a song of Zion!” “Sing us a song, now!” But how can we sing? How the songs of the Lord In a foreign land? How can we sing? If we forget our home May our tongues not move Our highest joy, Jerusalem With God, our home, at peace. © 2015 by Amy Boucher Pye
