A strange quarantine —

 

 

 

By the time many read this the whole world will know about coronavirus of 2020 and what an odd, terrifying, lifechanger it has been.  I won’t describe it, but wanted to share a word I had of encouragement a week or so, while I was helping Roger to shop for Instacart to help people get food delivered to their homes.  We have also been working for our sons in their group home, where my hours have gone (for that job) from 11-14 a week to 40-60 a week.  Laid off from the school jobs.

I was feeling very panicky one day in the store, as I was watching how people really didn’t seem to be taking the “social distancing” seriously, of staying over 6 feet part.  I try and move with the flow, always staying 6 feet away.  {I also do with my kids on their walks on the park pathways, which is a more complicated feat!)

I was also worried about my daughter working in crowds.  So while we were shopping this one day last week, and I was feeling very anxious, worried over my husband and I in the store and worried over our loved ones, and a kind of voice/feeling came in my hand and said

What would JESUS do.

Take care of the needy.  Supply their needs.  Help the ones who need it.

That was amazing, and then a few minutes later Roger’s customer wrote and thanked us and said we were doing the work of God.  Nooo but that was so sweet!  I got all teary eyed at the grocery store. 

There are so many people all over doing so many things, whether out on the front lines, or at home.  Thank you all!
