That was then, this is now

2020 What a strange time. We are home, quarantined, together. Eight of us in the same house. It’s not like we haven’t lived together for so many years, but this is different. Two are home from college – apartment contents with them. Two are married, living in their own space below. Six are still in classes, on-line.

All adults. All independent. All opinionated. All hungry. Incredible people that challenge and encourage me daily. We cover the spectrum: from high energy to mostly mental productivity, a need for social outlet and a desire for peace and quiet. We are diverse!

Looking back over the years and the dynamics of our family (see: Quite a Tale) I’m intrigued to ponder this present time… What is God up to? What is He doing now? Where is this going? How will life be different afterwards?

I don’t want to miss a moment! Not a tiny thing. God don’t let any of this be wasted! Prepare us, grow us, make us useful in it. You’ve gone to a lot of trouble to seclude and set apart and offer a unique opportunity… What can it all mean?

I’m still unsure, but I’m reading and studying and seeking. And He promises (!), we won’t miss any treasure that way. So I will love and be loved and enjoy the moment, knowing God has a greater plan even in thisCovid19/quarantine 2020.

Your will be done!
