Happy Monday, everyone!
Life is very different right now, isn’t it? The pandemic has affected pretty much everyone to some extent or the other.
Our Kansas stay-at-home has expired, and we’ve entered Phase 1 (out of 4). The state has guidelines and then each county decides beyond that what they should have in place. It’ll be interesting to see what life settles out to be over the coming months.
The past month plus has been quiet from the view of not being out and around (except for an occasional trip to the grocery store or other errands) but not quiet in that we’ve just wrapped up Week 3 of Mom, Anna, and Mary helping Christopher and Anna Marie’s family. For me, I’ve been blessed to have more time to focus on my book and now writing first draft.
We’d love to hear from our readers. How is life for you? How can we be praying for you?
We’re considering doing a post or a series of posts on what life is like for some of our readers in very affected areas (Italy, New York City, etc).
Perhaps a few paragraphs about how life has changed, a unique struggle you’ve faced, a way the Lord has shown Himself mighty through the situation, how you’ve been able to help someone else, etc. Just some ideas. If you had a few pictures to go along with it, we’d welcome that too. There isn’t a guarantee we’d post, but we’d love to consider it. You can email them to [email protected] by this Saturday, May 9th.
Yesterday morning, I read through Habbakuk and these verses struck me. We can rejoice in God regardless of what is happening all around us.
“Although the fig tree shall not blossom,
neither shall fruit be in the vines;
the labour of the olive shall fail,
and the fields shall yield no meat;
the flock shall be cut off from the fold,
and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.”
“Bless the LORD, O my soul:
and all that is within me, bless his holy name.”
