As we begin the umpteenth day of quarantine, I need perspective.
This weekend I spent a lot of time outside and looking out the windows. I was amazed...Spring is here! All is blooming. People are planting. Flowers are adding color to the world.
And I am changing my perspective. I love people. I love talking to those who are walking, riding bikes, doing whatever outside. Some talk back. Some pretend they didn’t see me or hear me. And that’s okay. We were forced into a new normal and don’t really know how to handle it sometimes.
I can tell you this: I’m hanging on to everything I’m learning and enjoying more of now. I don’t want to go back to what it was before COVID-19. What’s happened in this unknown is just how God planned it to be. The verse that talks about, “God is in our yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows,” is just more real to me now. God knew this was going to happen 2,000 years ago. He’s with me everyday now. He knows what happens tomorrow.
Today, it’s all about perspective. I want to remember to slow down a little more. Do a little less. Take it all in. Live like Jesus. Not know when the virus will go away, but knowing that He will take it away, when He is ready. God will do what only He Can.
Today I hope you slow down, and live with a “What are you teaching me, God?” perspective. Love you friends.
