A MESSAGE FROM LOUISE'S PEN
Well, we are now going on three years since the CORONAVIRIS (COVID-19) was recognized and we are still here. If you are like me, you have lost friends and relatives to this Pandemic. If you are like me, you have been traumatized and humbled by the intensity of this virus. Never in our history --- including Tuberculosis, Polio, and Influenza --- have we seen a virus so easily transmitted. Not even HIV has been so easily transmitted! (We have to breathe, after all!)
So, where does that leave us?
It leaves us right where we have always been. In the hands of God. No matter how many precautions we take, we may still fall victim to this virus or one of its mutations. No matter how healthy we are, how careful we are, we still have to trust in a HIGHER POWER if we are to be saved from succumbing to COVID.
We still have to trust and believe that all will be well. We have to trust that "this too shall pass" and life will be as "normal" as possible. Even if it is a "new" normal.
When we feel overwhelmed, we can always go inward and talk to the God that we believe in. We can always find comfort in knowing that nothing can happen without HIS PERMISSION.
I do believe that things will soon change. That we can meet with friends and walk down the street with joy. I believe we can smell the roses and dream of a better tomorrow. Soon.
BE BLESSED. BE SAFE. BE LOVED.
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!
