JOY – ARE YOU FINDING ANY YET?
Linda M. Penn
Several people have asked when I was going to write some more positive words in view of our current time, so here goes:
I have been watching virtual interviews on Kelly and Ryan’s TV show every weekday morning. In their interviews, someone always mentions “thankfulness” in this time of the Coronavirus.
Aren’t we supposed to be thankful looking for the joy in all things according to Bible verses? So…
1) What am I gaining from this Coronavirus experience each day?
2) Am I learning anything from this time?
3) Can I really say I am thankful for this Coronavirus? (Now that is a really tough question, right?)
These are questions I have each day and I admit some days are easier than others.
I saw and heard the anxiousness in Kelly’s face and voice the other day as she discussed her kids not wanting to hug her and her wanting to hug her parents. Yes, we really are all in this thing together!
Often, I hear the “experts” discuss what times might be like when we get out from this isolation. I can only hope and pray that indeed people will keep up the looking for the joy each day and be thankful somehow for the experiences during this time.
Oh, I see it is almost 5:00 p.m. I have to go watch Governor Andy give his daily update on TV. Yes, something for which to be thankful! His encouragement each day of “we will get through this together” is so uplifting.
Keep smiling. Praise the Lord, He is alive!
