From the coronavirus, we will see illness, death, drug abuse, child abuse, poverty, political infighting, loss of personal income, loss of business, loneliness from the isolation and divorce among other things. We are all living through a tragic event and we have a long way to go to get to the other side of it.
We’ve all had trials in our life. For some of us, this might be the worst thing we have ever faced, but for others maybe it’s not as bad. In my world, I handle the valleys pretty much the same way. I try to first focus on the positive things going on in my life, assess the situation and create a strategy to help myself and others find a way out. Then, I set my mind to do battle with the problem. Digging out of this one is going to suck, there is no doubt, but whenever I’ve been put in the fire, there has always been learning and opportunity mixed in with it all. We just have to figure that part out.
Today is Easter Sunday which is perfect timing for this particular holiday. If you believe, then you know that Jesus died for us on Friday, but he beat death today rising from the dead. There is promise in that for all of us. There is hope that even in the worst possible times that Jesus is capable of pretty much anything.
So today I will gather my family, watch our church service online, pray big prayers with HUGE expectations that things get better soon, and eat a great meal knowing that God never said it would be easy, but he did say he will always be with us no matter how bad things get. So ask for His peace today and know that my family will be praying for all of you.
Happy Easter everybody. Here’s to better days ahead.
With love from the Quinn’s.
