Adapting

Many of us are adapting to a new way of life.

While many of my daily activities have remained normal during COVID-19, every time I enter the public arena I am reminded of what has happened.

I now spend more time inside, attending Zoom meetings and interacting mainly via email and phone.

Eternity

One day, every one of us will die unless Jesus returns first. Pause with me for a moment to consider the two eternal destinations each of us will enter upon passing from this life into the next.

Revelation, the last book of the Bible, gives us a picture of heaven and hell.

Perspective

We are not the first to go through hard times.

History is filled with disease, disaster, distress, famine, failure, fear, trials, trouble, tribulation, and more.

From the very beginning, in Genesis chapter three, sin entered the world.

Moving forward

Each of us has different reasons for responding as we have to the virus and the resulting changes to our daily lives.

For me, at first, I waffled between fear and faith with so many unknowns.

Reminiscing

During these unusual times, it’s comforting to turn to something familiar.

Over the weekend, I pulled up some songs from the 80s and 90s which I haven’t listened to in years while completing a beautiful puzzle my husband Brad gave me in December.

Risen

In all the world around me I see His loving care / And though my heart grows weary I never will despair / I know that He is leading, through all the stormy blast / The day of His appearing will come at last.

Prayers

As we consider all of those impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19), let us lift up those individuals in prayer with increasing frequency.

Replacing fear with faith is some of the best advice I have heard in this difficult time, and turning fretful worry into productive action is a good place to start.

Homebound

Sunday afternoon, I worked myself into a frenzy over the coronavirus.

After talking with my sister who is a doctor, however, I am sharing some productive ways to use time if or when we find ourselves homebound.

Sunday evening, I put into practice some measures to help me stay calm.

Blackout

A blackout is scary.

Last week, as I traveled home one night, a few major intersections near where I live had lost power, including our home.

The roadway lay in darkness with no signals working.

I navigated the area slowly, paying close attention to what other vehicles were doing.
