2020.04.05: isolation

My more than five decades of memory can’t recall a time when there were no Sunday services. We are moving through historic times. I’ve always wondered how people who lived through historic times felt. Did they know that their daily news would be in the history books? Did they just want their historical events to come to an end so they can return to living in ordinary time? I find that my days although somewhat changed are still ordinary days. I find comfort in knowing that these trying days like all things – will also pass. In the mean time we can emulate what some brave folks did during some very rough times: “Keep calm and carry on”. Above all I’m learning to treasure each day like it’s a gift -finding joy and wonder in small things and loving the ones I’m with.

we all watch it on TV
Jesus rides alone
