When the pandemic started, the panic started. At that time survival was what was on everybody’s mind! A lot of routine things in our lives (all of us) just stopped! Our lives depended on “How quick can we get “The SHOT”. At first that was a real challenge, the rules and facts seemed to change everyday!
And then we got The SHOT! WOW! What a relief it was! And then, the 2nd SHOT! WE were saved! And then we weren’t! The dreaded VARIANT Delta came and now there is an E!!!!! Updates everyday! Mixed signals from “trusted authorities”! Worry! FEAR!
And all of this time it seems like the big questions are What is “the truth”?, What kind of future will we find ourselves in?
MY questions are Where did I go?, Were did my faith go?, What do I want to happen next?, What can I DO? What can anybody do?
WHERE DID THE LOVE GO?
The pandemic (I refuse to capitalize that word), effected people differently. Some people became more creative and productive and some became quiet, silent and withdrawn.
I was not withdrawn but I was quiet. I stopped making entries to my blog, I lost my zest for life and until recently my love of flowers and nature and God Blessed Companionship was what kept me alive.
When a person writes a blog it is very personal and that person wonders if it resonates with and touches other people.
I had not made an entry in my blog for a very long time. I just didn’t see the point.
In the last 2 weeks several people asked why I had stopped my blog entries. One in particular stirred my heart strings and I FOUND WHERE THE LOVE HAD GONE. IT HADN’T GONE ANYWHERE! THE FOG OF FEAR, DISAPPOINTMENT, LOSS AND PAIN HAD BLOCKED THE LIGHT!
What can we do? We can LET OUR LOVE LIGHTS SHINE! TELL PEOPLE WE LOVE THEM. TELL THEM THEY MATTER! SHARE OUR FAITH!
LOVE DIDN’T GO ANYWHERE! WE JUST FORGOT TO LOOK!
LOVE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL QUESTIONS! HOLD ON TO IT!
