Hey! I hope this post finds everyone healthy and as calm as possible. Everything that has been going on with COVID-19 has been pretty wild. I think it’s safe to say everyone has been impacted in one way or another.
It was crazy to go to the grocery store and see the shelves bare and completely out of stock of things I usually take for granted like toilet paper, canned goods, bread, and cereal.
I know a lot of people are out of work or working from home and facing really difficult situations. We have been praying for everyone who is impacted in any way. As always, if I can pray for you, send me an email or leave a comment. I would be more than happy to pray specific prayers for you 🙂
Our church had its last gathering for at least the next two weeks on Sunday morning and it hurt my heart to think we won’t be with our church family, especially during a time when we need each other the most. Technology to the rescue, though! We’ve been able to watch our church’s sermons and lessons on our TV via Facebook live and try to keep things as normal as possible in that regard.
The extra time at home and absence of busyness has helped me to draw closer to God, dig into my Bible, and spend more time in prayer. He is in control, He loves us, and is with us. Always.
One of my blog friends, Nicole, wrote an awesome post on everything that’s going on from a Christian’s perspective. Check it out here if you’re interested! She truly has a way with words and I found her post both real and comforting, which is tough to achieve these days.
In an effort to keep as much normalcy as possible in our day, Sadie and I filmed a vlog yesterday!
Other happenings have included walks around the block, texting our neighbors to see if we can help, Facetiming (<– is that a word?!) with our parents, lots of baking, cleaning, hand washing, and enjoying our time together.
How about a few pictures?
Well, I better get going. I hear Sadie starting to wake up. Her sleep has been all over the place lately and we’re hoping it’s not because her ears hurt.
She has been having ear infection after ear infection and we’re praying she doesn’t have another one now because we really don’t want to expose her to any extra germs at the doctor’s office and also don’t want to add extra work onto the doctors who are already so busy. Fellow parents, what do you do when your child has an earache?
Alright, I really better go!
