Is it Saturday?

In some ways, it feels like it has been a year of Saturdays. Our youngest two have been staying with us and we have not been traveling. Our schedule is not at all the same. And we continue to wait for what is next. New things have become regular and many “regular” things have disappeared from my day/week.

It is hard to predict what will be next. How differently will things look? How differently will my life look? And, in the midst of all of the changes and disruptions, can I still give praise and honor to my Creator?

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6

Everyone has some changes to adapt to and that means everyone is expending energy getting used to them. We are all a bit depleted — and maybe not accomplishing as much as normal. We will all need some extra patience in the days to come.

But, as long as we are breathing, we can give praise. The circumstances of the day may change but Jesus does not:

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

Thank you, Lord, for being the constant in these crazy days! Praise you for all you are doing! Amen!

One thought on “Is it Saturday?

  1. Thanks dear friend for the calming words. The references to the Bible are an arrow to point where I can read for more soothing messages. These times are changing,but I pray we do NOT go back to what we knew as “normal”. Now we appreciate finding soft paper goods, like toilet paper, paper towels, or food on the grocery store shelves, things we took for granted. But with the isolation orders we have experienced cleaner air quality, a major issue in California. I hope we remember how good it is to have cleaner air. we need to move forward in our care of this planet, it was disregard towards it that started this pandemic. Now we can focus on what is really important, meeting on our days of worship with fellow congregants, being able to eat healthy meals, speak to our friends without social distancing, appreciating how difficult a job health care, teachers, law enforcement , fire protection really is, day in and day out. I pray we don’t take then for granted any more. I pray we move in the appreciative direction, not go back to the old “normal”, new and improved to,show our love to our home that God gave us. Stay well, all the best!
