The Girls in White


To distract from the frightening and tragic news of what is happening all over the world with COVID-19, one can turn, even if for only a few minutes, to a favorite hobby.


One of mine is collecting dolls.



This week, I gathered a few beauties dressed completely in white and arranged them on a table near my bed.

Love looking at the little sweethearts.


It's nice to have a hobby that one loves.

In the meantime, another thing that can be done during our stay-at-home time, is to pray.

We can pray for all of those who have died from COVID-19 and their families, for those who will die today, and for doctors, nurses, certified nursing assistants, and all other medical personnel helping the stricken. 

WHAT IS CURRENTLY AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR DAYS DURING THIS TIME IN HISTORY?

Be Gentle With Yourself


In these turbulent times, when news of American deaths from coronavirus keep coming at us like painful messages of doom,  it's important to be gentle with one's self.

It's true that we are in terribly difficult times.

This is a pandemic that most of us have never seen the likes of before and probably will never see again, thank God.

Then we hear of devastating shortages of medical equipment plus protective gear and masks for front line workers.

We are relegated to our homes while the economy spins out of control.

During all of this negativity, we need to S-T-0-P.

Turn off the television and ipods.
Interact with little kids if there are any in your house.

Be kind to whoever is sharing the stay-at-home order with you.

If you are alone, take good care of yourself.

Eat good quality food, exercise in some way, and find something to smile about.


Follow the rules. Stay safe. Stay healthy. STAY HOME.

NAME ONE WAY YOU CAN  BE KIND TO YOURSELF.

Take Time


A new day arrived with a steady drizzle of chilly rain instead of sun.

There was no church service to go to because, as we all know, churches are closed due to you-know-what.

Still, the day is only partially gone and many small but good things have already happened.  

1. We are alive.

2. God is the same today as He was yesterday and will be tomorrow!


3. We had delicious coffee, eggs, rice, beans, and toast for breakfast.

4. We had a video call from our son who lives out-of-state.

5. We had phone messages from our daughter. She is offering to buy groceries for us so we don't have to go to a supermarket and get exposed to the virus.

6. The house has heat.

7. A friend called us to see how we were doing.

8. The daily newspaper was right at our doorstep, informing us of what is happening in the world.

And on and on.  See?  



All I had to do was take time to look around to find good things. There are many, many more.

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT  A FEW GOOD THINGS IN YOUR OWN LIFE TODAY?
