GoodThings & Covid-19: #17

OK, Corona got cancelled, you can return to your previously scheduled programming!

April Fools”

Is it considered poor taste to joke about that? I hope not. It is, after all, what everyone is waiting for and it IS better than putting an OXO cube or cool-aid in the shower-head nozzle after all (Now THERE’s an April fool’s prank, with credit going to Newfie friend Crystal (Huxter) Knowles – a very joke-y family).

Go ahead… try it… it could be one of someone else’s…

Today’s #3GoodThings

  1. The Winds Stopped: I’ll tell you what… it continued to be windy up until yesterday (3 days in a row). It put so much pressure on the hoophouse that the plastic covering’s constant rubbing against a wooden post I had inside, caused there to be a small tear in the plastic. It’s reinforced, so it’s not like the whole thing will tear now, but still… that’s some wind! So, again… one of today’s good things is that the gale-force wind have stopped! (the chickens can now roam through the entire yard again!) 🙂
  2. A Few Extra Teaching Hours: There are two teachers, on the Paris campus of one of my schools, who are unable to teach – either through internet strength, small children at home, etc. So they’ve asked if – since I’m doing classes remotely anyway, would I mind doing a couple classes with these students. I’m up for it. It’ll be nice to have a few extra hours as the school year winds down and missions giving may be impacted among our supporting churches.
  3. Psalm 91.2: I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

To pick up from where I left off yesterday (Psalm 91.1)

How do you make your dwell in the secret place of the Most High? It begins with a decision. I have to choose to do it. With baby chicks, it’s almost instinct to hide under mama hen when surprised by a perceived threat.

Not so with us humans. Not always anyway.

We have a faculty of choice and we can choose what we will put our trust in. Of course we trust medical advice and government recommendations… but in the end, there are people who have done their best and still been infected…

Ultimately, we need to trust in the Lord (and not just for the “bad times”). After all… to dwell means to remain. To take today’s term… a fortress wasn’t something you hopped in and out of… you went in expecting to stay. It was a safe place.

The Lord IS a safe place.

Does it mean that no Christians will contract the virus? Obviously not. But it means that when we’re in the Lord’s care, we’re in good hands for this life and for eternity.

Is it still… “In God We Trust”?

God bless you today!

While your other activities are limited, read about the antics of teenagers on/around the Moncton-Buctouche Railway in the early 1920s.
