Here is the second round of responses regarding your observations and thoughts about 40 days of social distancing.

  • I have been reminded of the resilience and trusting nature of young children throughout the last few weeks. I have had multiple opportunities to Zoom with the children at church, my students at school and our grandchildren. They have adjusted to new schedules, homeschooling, more time at home with siblings, missing sports and extracurricular activities, getting oriented to their parents working from home
    and the list goes on. Through this I have noticed that they have really stepped up their game! They are working extra hard to help their parents, getting along with their siblings, learning to be more independent in their schoolwork and simply enjoying life. They have full trust that their families will take care of them which reminds me that I should have full trust that my Father will take care of me! (Janice G.)

  • In the present "upside-down" world of pandemic days, many things have changed. I have noticed that some have not . . . the sun still comes up each morning, some days are rainy, the telephone rings when friends and loved ones call, the washing machine runs as does the dryer, there is food on our table, kind words pass between us and others, we can read, study, and pray. Life as we knew it may never be the same; however, we can count on God's love and His grace, come what may! (Kati W.)
Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! . . . Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe youyou of little faith! (Luke 12:24, 27-28)
