A little different take this weekend~~~
Sometimes we take steps back and reevaluate.
We realize once again that we are not running one thing.
That space is an opportunity.
These past few days have reminded me that our regular lives don’t go away just because the world is in pandemic stage.
We still deal with daily concerns and problems , and then we look up to find that somehow a worldwide pandemic is in the mix.
What to do?
Well, I pray…but I am praying from afar, not in a church. Not for awhile. I know a lot of people see no benefit, but I have learned that prayer often changes things and people we may never know about. So, I pray.
I love…people who mean a lot to me are hopefully feeling my love for them from near and from thousands of miles away. Love is always a good choice.
I think…about so many scenarios. When that gets out of hand, I settle on the present. Make the brownies. Cook the soup. “Feed the people” has been my default for years. It does help because it keeps me busy and nourishes someone.
I rest…because we can only take so much in in a 24 hour period. I limit social media right now, and give myself quiet time. Oh, I’m still scrolling…just not constantly. I’ve learned I must disconnect from drama and do something else.
I hope…because that keeps the wheels turning. One day, this will be memory. Until then, watch for glimmers of light in the shadows.
Since I missed last week’s post, here are a few extra joys/really good things to think about as we navigate this new world:
children who ask to snuggle
poetry books with underlined passages
music on an old school record player
letters in mailboxes
Take care, dear readers. I’m going to keep deciding to look for the light. I hope you’ll join me here for a respite from the chaos when you can. 🌟
