OPPORTUNITIES

March 21, 2020   OPPORTUNITIES By Linda M. Penn               As I was sitting at my desk wondering how I was going to survive with no live sports on TV until, well, who knows when, I noticed a cardinal outside my window.  Next thing I saw, a blue jay.  Wow!  Such beauty!  (OPPORTUNITY # 1 Notice the birds)   As the birds were merrily scurrying around the yard, a Bible verse came to mind about how God takes care of the birds, so He will take care of us.  I found the verse in Matthew 6:26.  Check it out before you go scurrying around to the stores in search of toilet paper!  (OPPORTUNITY # 2 Read the Bible)   I looked out the back window and there was our Eagles Landing Condos’ usual family of geese squawking like crazy.  I say “our usual family of geese” because every Spring, these is a goose who sits on a nest of eggs under the same sycamore tree by the pond.  Another faithful goose (presumably the male) stands guard.  We always know when another “family of geese” tries to invade because of the loud shrieks.  Wow!  Amazing nature!  (OPPORTUNITY # 3 Listen to nature at work)   The local library is closed, so I located a book I had ordered online several months ago that I was intending to read.  After the first couple of pages, I was hooked and am enjoying relaxing time with a book.  Plus, this book contains a lot of history about the Native Americans in Oklahoma.   (OPPORTUNITY #4 Read and learn)   Most of the residents where I live are considered in the “elderly” category (although we certainly do not think of ourselves as such) and we are not supposed to go out of our homes now.  Really – this is hard for us!  We, the “seniors,” have been told previously we need companionship, we need to be out and about volunteering, congregating for exercise, meeting for coffee, and NOT sitting at home.  Guess what?  I got a call from a friend, and another call from a deacon at church, and have gotten several emails from my exercise class instructor.  Okay, next thing on my agenda, is to call or email some family and friends.  (OPPORTUNITY # 5 Reconnect with people)   Anyone who knows me well, understands how I like to remain positive in taxing situations, and I admit this virus pandemic has made me search for the positives.  I believe, however, if we look for the positives and opportunities right in front of us, we can maintain some sense of well-being.  Satan is not going to fill us with anxiety if we continually kick that fear out of our minds each day.  I am clinging to this verse from 2 Corinthians 5:7 – WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT!  (OPPORTUNITY # 6  Pray and rely on God)   Keep smiling, Linda
