How are you doing?

How are you doing?  We are well into our 3rd week of quarantine.  So much has changed over the last several weeks.  I have changed over the last several weeks.  Have you?

This is such an unique time in our lives.....we have never walked this way before.   Everything is new and life seems so fragile.  Our normal routines have been altered greatly.  So, how are you doing with all this change?  I admit I have my days of crying, fretting, and having melt downs.   Being in a house with 5-7 people every day has it's challenges.  However, the simple truth that Jesus never changes is carrying me through.  He still loves me.  He still loves you.  He still knows you have needs.  He still has plans for us.  We are still breathing, aren't we?  We are given today.  What will we do with it? 

I want to encourage you to love and laugh with the people God has you with now.  Be gracious, knowing you are all in this together.  I feel we will look back on these days of quarantine and have fond memories with our loved ones.   Really, when was the last time we all spent this much time together?   

Each day we are praying for the sick ones.  Each day we are praying for the well ones.  Each day as we allow God's spirit freedom in our hearts, we are becoming more like Him.  Hang in there friend.
Love and prayers,
Melaina
