An Interesting Day

I sit in my home, using my computer from the church, it is snowing like crazy as I type, and I have COVID.  I am now officially engaged in the pandemic.  I didn’t choose it, but it found me and to some degree it is to be expected.  For the most part I feel good, toward the end of the day, I don’t feel as well, but doing okay.  For all who are praying thank you.  I guess at this point it is time to learn and reflect on what “normal” means.

Deb and I went to the state annual meeting last week, it was good to see brothers and sisters in Christ and things felt normal.  But they weren’t.  COVID came with someone and it was shared like the fellowship.  That reminds me that normal is a very long away from where we are.  It may be that we do not see the normal we are accustomed to again for quite some time.  That is just a reality.

Since last March when everything exploded across the US, I prayed and asked God for protection from the virus, and the church as well.  Sometimes God has a different plan for us, and I am okay with that, because God has infinitely more wisdom and insight into our lives than what we can possibly imagine.  I will still pray for the church family and their protection from the virus or now through the virus.

Deb tested positive as well, so we do get to share this experience together without having to isolate from each other in the house.  We now get to figure out a whole different perspective in live regarding the details we take for granted, like getting groceries.  Which I have received several offers of our church folks to help us out with this and I am grateful, we just have to figure it out first!

God is oh so good and I am so thankful to the Heavenly Father for all that He has given and provided for throughout my life.  At this point, I rely on Him and because His track record is perfect. 


“Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish,

for His mercies never end.

They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness!”

Lamentations 3:22-23
