A couple weeks ago at church there was a message about things Covid can’t stop us from doing.  It was a great message letting us know that even in this time of anxiety and fear God is with us.

It was very difficult for me at the beginning of quarantine.  I was a Stay-at-Home mom in name only.  M.J. and I left the house almost every day.  He’s an extroverted only child so it was very difficult for him (and me) when he wasn’t able to play with his friends.  He was also too young to understand what was happening.  He didn’t understand why no one was coming over.  I definitely let him watch more TV than normal.  Because how are you supposed to get anything else done when you have entertain a toddler ALL. DAY. LONG.

Even though it was very hard to not really interact with other people I was able to talk on the phone and video chat with a lot of my friends.  I even had a couple Facetime playdates (mostly for the moms).  It was also nice to be able to spend more time together as a family.  And I probably read way more books than I would have been able to if I had been able to leave the house.  And I made a million muffins so I guess there were some blessings that came out of quarantine.

It is scary to be living through this time.  We don’t know what’s going to happen.  I wish everything could just go back to normal.  I’m a little sad that it is taking much more time than I thought it would to go back to normal.  But even though these times are scary God is always with us.  Even when we couldn’t go to church we could still watch it online.  I am so glad to be able to go to church in person again, though!  It is hard, though.  Obviously people are encouraged not to hug or touch people they don’t live with but I am a hugger.  Especially when I see people I haven’t seen in a long time, it is natural to want give them a hug.  But remember the Corona Virus will go away eventually.  Clearly not as soon as I had been wanting but that doesn’t mean we have to stop living life in the middle of this Pandemic.

Covid can’t

Steal my faith

Covid can’t

Stop God’s grace

Covid can’t

Make me live in fear

Covid can’t

Ruin my year

Covid can’t

Steal my joy

Covid can’t

Take fun from my boy

Covid can’t

Stop me from giving

Covid can’t

Stop me from living
