I Know Some of You Are Having A Rough Time

To many the thought of being trapped with your family for days on end is a nightmare. Not to mention having an invisible monster lurking outside waiting to cause a painful death.

It is a time for many of us to look deep inside ourselves and figure out our true purpose. It is time to determine what legacy will we leave on this planet where we have no control.

Because we are not the ones with the final say, we may need to lighten up. My quarantine time has been filled with lots of humor. This reporter was about to do his story when a herd of bison came toward him.

The story is probably trending now. The next was the little old lady in Chi-town. She was angry at some woman from the grocery store and wanted to teach that woman a Chicago lesson.

I also enjoy the banter between Andrew Cuomo and his brother, Chris. While it is fun, I also find comfort in Andrew’s daily press conferences. It is good to hear an empathetic leader.

There have been online dance parties with dj’s like D-Nice who has had audiences as large at 150K on Instagram. Celebrity concerts from their living rooms and Wonderful bible studies.

But the most precious moments have come from ordinary citizens who are battling this war from one of the fronts.

My best giggle from today was when someone complained how long March seemed. Folks said that about January is what I said to my sister. She said March said “Hold my beer.”

Fighting an invisible foe which half the country does believe exist is difficult but we are united. We are working together and there is hope in that.

After the struggles 2019, which were real and painful, many couldn’t wait to put that year behind them. 2020 has kicked open the crapper and spread its contents like it was paint on the walls.

So I do believe the moral to the story is to enjoy what we got while we got it because only God knows what lies ahead of us. But we can face any challenge together.

Peace and Hair grease

Standing up trying not to fall asleep

“If you chase a dog it will run,” Ms CJ said. She jumped into the conversation of the teenage boy behind me. He was almost in tears talking to his friend about how his girl broke up with him.

Ms CJ went on to say, “just be still.” She had butted into his conversation because she couldn’t resist. She knew he needed good sound advice at this time.

She went on to tell him that things happen for a reason and if he was still for a while, it would make sense later.

Once she said that we got off the bus because it was our stop.

This morning Pastor Tanya was telling me how people are always asking her to tell them the purpose God has for their life.

I can’t do that, she said. I tell them they need to meet with Him everyday. She said through that quiet time and scripture God will reveal His plan to you, but it is something you have to do yourself.

So all of you folks out there searching for a magic elixir, be still and know. It is through time spent in His word that you learn the shepherd’s voice. Like any relationship worth having, time spent in it is what makes it work. Listen.
