What perspective in your life has changed since the onset of the pandemic? What action can you take on that perspective?

For sure, I don’t want to minimize the hurt of this time. The death. The loss of jobs. The impact to families, and especially children being stuck at home – play time they so cherished stricken from them. Yet, this time has made me stop and reflect. When I go to the grocery store wanting steaks on a whim – and there is no meat – or really anything. When I, out of the blue, want to order that cool new home automation part, thinking I can have it tomorrow. Yet, Amazon says “Yes! It’s on Prime! But it will arrive in a month!” I’m realizing how “easy” I had it. Where my focus is a lot of the time – and where it should be.

There is a part of “shelter in place” I have really enjoyed, and that’s really seeing and realizing my blessings. My family; the time we have had together. Yes has been hard at times, but also, and fortunately most of the time, heart warming. To be with Beautiful and blessed by her. The smile and true “spirit of a child” our son blesses us with. The “stay six feet away” visits from my daughters. Friends coming by out of the blue with gifts, friendship and sometimes filling deep needs. God has used this time to teach me to “Not walk by the flesh, but by the Spirit,” and it’s pretty cool.

So, I ask again and encourage you to think about and reflect on:
