It’s been a little over three years since the pandemic began – it changed a lot of things in our lives, in our homes, schools, on our jobs, in the chuch, our community. The list goes on.
How did it affect your life?
Many people lost their family members, loved ones and friends during Covid.
Church doors closed, and many churches were having fellowship service on the telephone and Zoom.
The home became the work place. Family members spent more time together. And more prayers were prayed.
We cannot forget about Covid. It caused many deaths. Most everyone has known someone who died from Covid. Some of the doctors said Covid could be spread before a person is symptomatic.
With mandates lifted, I feel wearing masks is a personal decision. Getting a booster may not keep you from contracting Covid, but it can help prevent severe illness.
It’s also important to get an annual flu vaccination.
Keep washing your hands, drinking lots of water, and all the things that keep one healthy.
During the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter, Lent is observed by many Christians as a time of fasting and praying – humble in sharing the love of Christ with others, putting Him first.
Matthew 23:12, “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Rely more on God through your prayer and fasting.
Our prayers and concern goes out to all the sick and shut-in, those in hospitals, nursing homes, prison, the homeless – all in need of prayer everywhere.
Keep the family of George Crump in your prayers. Let us love one another.
