Today is just another day, but a sad day for me. I am visiting my folks out in the country. It is one place that doesn’t have rules on social distancing. Because nobody lives in the cemetery. Eight years ago, our lives were turned upside down when our beloved Mom passed away, and two years later our beloved Dad also went to heaven.
I like to share my former experience with social distancing. In 2002, our Mom had a kidney transplant and for six months only three of us were allowed in the house. If we were sick, then we had to avoid her. It wasn’t easy, but out of necessity we followed the doctor’s rules. We did this because we loved her. She lived an extra ten years because we practiced social distancing.
So, please wash your hands, practice social distancing, and for goodness sake, stay at home if you’re sick. If you love your life and the lives of others around you, then follow these rules to lessen the spread. It’s for your benefit, as well as, everyone else’s.
Join me in praying for those who have lost love ones from the coronavirus. May God gives them peace and understanding in the days ahead. Praying for comfort and strength for those battling it. May God give godly wisdom to the doctor’s, scientists, and researchers to find a cure and vaccine soon. May God heal His people and our world. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen.
