For silver linings.
Hello, friends and family. I hope you’re all hanging in there. We will get through this! Remember: Peace over panic; faith over fear. I know, I know, but even if through clenching teeth, just keep repeating it in your heads. Lots of people out there in worse situations. Let’s keep perspective on the front burner.
These unsettling times are scary because this virus is relentless and it does not discriminate. It has turned the world upside down (more than it already was, if that was possible). But we must look for the silver linings in challenging and uncertain times. We must look at the bright side to the kick in the butt Corona is inflicting:
-So much has been learned from it.
-Many people helping others and so many random acts of kindness.
-We’re living in awareness like never before.
-We are more prayerful.
-We are more grateful.
-We’re spending more time with one another than we’ve had in a long time, either via virtual gatherings (FaceTiming, Zooming, Skyping, etc.) or under the same roof. Although I’m loving the round-the-clock home together thing, it can get a little hairy from time to time, I admit. But, how often is that going to happen post-Corona? So let’s embrace that now.
I’m sure you have many other examples of good that are coming out of this dark time. Folks, this monster imprisoned our bodies, but not our minds and certainly not our spirits. And for that silver lining, today and always, I am thankful.
Here’s a dose of hope: Nunca ha llovido que no haya escampado. Never has it rained that it hasn’t stopped. Stay positive, keep the faith, and stay healthy!
What are you thankful for today?
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
“I am thankful for my struggle because without it, I wouldn’t have stumbled upon my strength.”
“The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser in case you thought optimism was dead.”
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
