Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Friends, it’s the first Tuesday in April and I hope all is well. I have read where some are getting a little antsy about what’s going on. We all need to chill because no one knows how long this will go. It’s important to care for ourselves and one another (of course from a distance). We can do this if we cooperate as a global and local community. Mutual support is so important these days. Everything I have just said applies to me too. My friends, be strong, be courageous, be kind.

The Thing About: Patience

In this time of uncertainty, patience is a divine virtue. Have patience with yourself, with one another, with the circumstances we are in. Everyone is going through something and we all wish things were back to “normal”. It is my thought that we aren’t going back to “normal” but something else that will require us to have patience and a whole lot of grace for one another.

Who knows what things will look like on the other side. It will require patience and hopefully freedom from anxiety.

My friends, now is the time to be still, take care of self, have a little faith in something that will get you through. Remember to love one another and yourselves in this very difficult time.

Social Distancing Saturday

The title of this blog is pretty much what you think its about. Most everyone is keeping a healthy distance so we can flatten the curve. Doing our part is a must these days. With over 105,000 cases of the virus reported its something everyone should take seriously.

My heart goes out to the sick and suffering. Grace and peace to those who are lost and to those who survive.

That doesn’t mean we cannot connect with one another through other means. I cannot imagine what this would be like without the Internet. Many of us would go crazy mad. Now is a good time to catch up on things you enjoy doing but haven’t had time for.

Spending more time at home has been a change of pace for many but in the end it will be good to not be so scheduled and busy. Technology is helping many pass the time. Hopefully this means we can take care of self a little more. Dare we say boredom is a good thing?

My friends hang in there. Have faith. Be strong. Don’t let social distancing mean you are socially distant.

The Blog Has A New Look, Using The 2015 #WordPress Theme

2015bloglayout2020

My blog has a new, different look. This is the 2015 WordPress Default theme and it does a lot of good things such as offering a clean look, plenty of space and a left-side sidebar (most blogs have their sidebar on the right). I am pleased with the modifications and the hue of blue its rocking. I hope it is easy on the eyes for most people. Tell me what you think in the comment section below. Thanks to you all. Keep on blogging good people.

A Note: This Blog Is Open

My blog remains open during this crisis. All our blogs should be open to bridge the social distancing we are doing these days. Having some fun during serious times can give us all some relief. So, please come in. Have some coffee or tea or something stronger and let us chill in the quarantine.
