It’s been over two weeks since the #stayathome initiatives. I am beginning to lose track of time and the days are beginning to blur together. I am getting a bit more adjusted now, and I have finally started up my homework again but I’m not sure I will ever get used to this. I know as human beings, we are not meant to be non-social creatures. This is an interesting point and time for all of humanity. I wonder how we will look back on this period of life and the lessons we’ll learn as a community.
Before the semester started, I went on a camping trip. The camping trip ended prematurely due to a winter storm passing through the region. Before the storm came through, I actually captured a few beautiful shots of the lake and our fishing set up.
It kind of feels like this moment right now. There’s this calm, but it does not feel like a storm is about to pass through. It blindly comes in and you can only hope that your equipment can withstand the 50 mph winds. You’ll hold onto what you can take and shelter in the most secure place in sight. But you never saw it coming. The forecast didn’t predict it and I never saw it coming. Did any of us?
My dearest bloggers, are you okay? Are you taking care of yourself? Walking, communicating, your faith burning strong, and reminding your loved ones to stay safe? There is a biblical saying,
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 New International Version (NIV)
17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Friends, this too shall pass. We will come out of this moment stronger, wiser, and a bit different. I am here for you.
