We will not be getting together on Wednesday and Friday again this week.  We need to let the COVID activity settle down a bit.  We’ll be getting back together as soon as I feel we can do it safely.  Hopefully soon!

Unfortunatley, our neighbor friend that I wrote about last week passed away from COVID on Friday afternoon.  He was always a happy and jolly person who would sing anytime he got a chance.  He brought a lot of smiles to people’s faces.  Like my Dad, he was loved by so many family members and friends.  He will be missed dearly.  Please keep his family and friends in your prayers.  They lost several of their family members this past year including his daughter and brother.  His wife, daughter and son who also had COVID are doing ok.  My heart aches for all of them.

Unfortunately, the last few weeks, we’ve been having trouble getting logged on to the Zoom prayer group since zoom changed their security technology.  I’m sorry about that!  I set up a new zoom account and plan on being available tomorrow.  Hopefully, we can get it working this week.

Our Zoom prayer group on Wednesday mornings are a great place to get together virtually, catch up a bit and give thanks.  Even though we can’t get together physically, it’s so nice to see all who joins us virtually.  I really like the good things coming out of this group.  It’s awesome seeing so many of you there laughing, listening, sharing, giving thanks and praying!   Even in this pandemic, we have a lot to give thanks for, don’t we?

We’ll be doing it again tomorrow (Wednesday) @ 11:30am.  We’ll get together either via phone or computer (your choice) and share, talk, listen, give thanks, and pray in however God leads us.  It’s a way for all of us to get together virtually to catch up and be there for each other and with each other.  I hope you’ll join us!

Here’s a link to our Zoom Meeting.  Just click or call @ 11:30am Wednesday and you’ll be connected.  I hope to “see” you there!  😊

My heart goes out to all the people and families of the people that have been affected by COVID-19.  This is really getting serious and close to home.  Whether actually having it, being exposed to it, being affected by businesses being shut down, losing your job, working on the front line, etc.  These are tough times and we really need to take it seriously and do our part of practicing social distancing and all other recommendations.  I hope you and your family are safe.  Let’s keep everyone affected in our prayers and pray we all get through this as safely as we can.

As we all go through this pandemic together, I encourage you to share a smile with someone.  Perhaps you could give someone a call that you haven’t talked with for a while just to see how they’re doing.  This pandemic is tough in many ways.  We all could use a little extra love and encouragement during these times.

Let’s be thankful for all the doctors, nurses and everyone in the health care that are putting themselves at risk every day and every night as they serve those with the Coronavirus.  These are amazing, selfless, courageous people!  Let’s also give thanks to all the people in the world that are working diligently to develop testing equipment and ways to treat this Coronavirus.  Let’s also give thanks for all the people that are working diligently to produce protective gear, respirators, and any other medical equipment to help us get through this pandemic.

We may be inconvenienced in many ways but others have it much worse.  Let’s be thankful we have each other.  I know I’m thankful for you!

Let’s stay calm, focused, healthy, flexible, have faith and learn as much as we can about the challenges of each day and make good choices.

See you soon!
