No End in Sight

Well, it doesn’t look like there’s any end in sight with this coronavirus, at least to me. I mean, they’re not even talking about it ending any more, just more of the same every day. I even saw a headline on MSN that said the WHO is predicting at least another year of this!

I don’t know if I can handle it. It’s just all so bizarre. Seeing people in masks everywhere I go. It just all looks like something out of a movie, not something I’d have ever believed would happen in real life. At least not here.

I’m still basically self-quarantining, being on the safe side, but going to the grocery and drug stores when I need to. Except that I used to go to the grocery store every week, and now I go once a month and buy for a whole month. But I’m not going to eat-in restaurants or anything, just doing takeout.

And we are going to yard sales (although there aren’t that many of them, not nearly what there were a year ago at this time), but like everyone else we are wearing our masks. We are still buying inventory in anticipation of them opening the flea market back up at some point, which was how we made extra money. We’re just being careful and not buying too much stock.

There’s talk that they might not even open back up until after the first of the year! Well, that makes sense in light of what I said at the beginning of this post – that there’s no end in sight to this coronavirus. It’s getting discouraging.

It seems like it’s all we hear about, too. Right now it’s in the news again (still?) because the 19th of this month kids are supposed to go back to school, and so many states are opting for “virtual schooling.” Wow, talk about being futuristic!

Supposedly, though, my granddaughters are going back to “real” school (we live in TN). Hmm… we’ll see how that goes. That kind of freaks me out, because I’m wondering if I’ll be able to see them, for fear of what they’ll be bringing home from school.

I love them with all my heart and it would kill me not to see them, but I have to take precautions, too. I am older now, and my husband has diabetes and heart problems, and we just can’t afford to get sick. Wow, what a state of affairs.

All we can hope is that they find a cure for this virus soon, no matter what the WHO says. I pray every night for God to deliver us all from this coronavirus.

Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation. But take heart, for I have overcome the world.” I take solace in this Scripture, and my hope is in the Lord. In Him I have peace, and do not fear during this time of Covid-19.

I stand on my faith, and God has been keeping me strong during this time, as always. I hope He has been doing the same for you.

Wishing you joy and stability,

Remember God loves you and so do I,
Michele
