Easter

We must admit this virus is not just changing the world, it’s changing us. I don’t have to explain it to you, we are all going through it together. Even the Queen said we are all in it together with one goal, to win this war together. On Sunday they asked us not to go anywhere at all. No grocery stores & even no drug stores and certainly not church. On top of that, no one even knows when it will end. Well, maybe God does, but He hasn’t let us in on the when yet.

One thing is for sure, we have had some wonderful things happen since this started. The pollution has diminished up to 50%, the world is not vibrating as much since most vehicles are parked, the weather is getting better, the ozone layer is repairing itself and many of us finally had time to smell the roses.

At the same time we can’t get away from the terrible tragedy of it all. Just remember, ”we will get through it together.”  It reminds me of the words Ward Motheral used to say to me every Sunday morning when he came to church. He said: “You have your health, you have your wealth.” And he is more right about that today than ever before.

But there are other things that we notice at this time in our society. I believe that we have been forced to get to know each other again, and even better. You can only watch so much tv before you start talking to people. We have an opportunity right now to connect more fully with each because we are all going through the same things. And that is good, even if we can’t be in the same room.

All these connections can come because of our modern technology. We didn’t have all these devices and programs for connecting thirty years ago, even ten years ago. We don’t have to go see them, we just have to turn on the computer or pick up the phone. A beautiful thing and it’s all because we are isolated.

There is something more. We have at this time, the right moment we have been waiting for to reconnect, or get acquainted for the first time with God.  This coming Sunday is Easter and celebrating still can happen in our minds and hearts. He is Risen! We may not be able to go to church, but we can go and find that bible and read the Gospel of John and realize Hebrews 13:5 is right, He is the only one who will never leave us nor forsake us.

Something to think about.
