You Are My Sunshine!
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
A week ago, I share with you all the precautions we are taking in light of the Corona Virus invasion into our country, as well as so many nations across the globe. This disease shows no partiality. Conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat, believer or atheist, this plague has neither the power to judge nor delineate.
It simply attacks.
And when we least expect it.
I never thought I would say this, not in a thousand lifetimes, but I'm glad that our grandchildren are no longer living close to us. That they are far away, for the time being, it is actually a back-handed blessing. If they were within easy traveling distance, our sadness would have been multiplied beyond measure as, with schools closed, and our present vulnerability to this outbreak, we would have been prevented any visitation whatsoever.
Thank goodness and thank God for Face Time!
We have been able to stay connected, face to face, and though we can't throw arms around one another, that's probably for the best at this juncture. Just knowing that all my girls, and John, are safe and thriving gives me peace of mind and joy in my heart.
And how can I not be happy when I see how much fun they are having at Myrtle Beach?
Fresh air and sunshine . . . How much these contribute not only to healing, but to prevention of disease.
We all need more sunshine, don't we?
Can we shine the light of Jesus on others right where we are? Can we be their Son-shine?
In these dark times, may we always remember the silver lining in the gathering clouds. Let us cling to the promise of the Lord, that He will make good out of circumstances that, to our human perspective, may seem hopeless and irredeemable.
He did so for Joseph.
He will for me.
He will for you.
