And In my Neighborhood

I hear a lot about different states but have no verification. Here in Indiana many changes have been happening in the past couple of weeks.

People are afraid. People are hoarding toilet paper and hand sanitizers along with cleaning products. People must eat out often because the actual food aisles are loaded with real food.

Restaurants are closed here but you can still go through the drive-thru part. Schools were delayed until April 1 but as an hour ago have now been closed until May.

Some grocery stores have opened up early for only Seniors to go shopping with minimal risk Most businesses will allow you to pay online but not in person.

I saw that President Trump is working on helping those who have lost their jobs due to the virus through various ways.

Elective surgeries have been cancelled by hospitals and the town next to me, as of today, have placed a travel advisory in place. They are not to be out driving without a very important reason.

I have lived through different plagues but this one seems so different and in my opinion it is because people are carrying the virus without any symptoms for up to two weeks and if some choose to think this is a hoax, they are spreading the disease even more.

I saw the younger generation was an example of what I said above. They are younger and feel like they can ignore or conquer anything. I get it, but this is not just state to state, it is global, therefore this is one time we all need to respect the new changes in effect.

As for myself, I am facing some new health challenges. I have been to the doctor, it seems, about once a week. I have been to the ER this week and am seeing a Specialist next week.

I pray for you and I pray for me. Please do what you can to keep others, yourself and your families safe.

This too shall pass but not without losses.

  1. I’m so sorry that you’re dealing with severe health issues right now on top of the strangeness of our changed lives. By changed, I mean that we’re seeing businesses closed, fewer cars on the road, and shelves at the store bewilderingly bare of things we always expect to see. I pray that we can make it through the pandemic and see how our grandchildren remember this time 5 or 10 years from now. Most of all, I remember Who is in control – and it’s not some human, nor even you or I. That always helps me let go of the worst of my anxious thoughts.

    Lord, I ask that you bless my sister Terry, and help her to navigate the health issues she’s trying to manage. Help her to understand the choices she can make as her healthcare team explains them to her, and even where they don’t. Help her to find joy in the day, even when things seem to be going rather badly. Help her to see the helpers, and where You provided for her before she needed anything. Bless her with Your Peace, and a confidence of your involvement with her life right there, right now.

    • Never feel bad about not reading my posts right away. I’m just thankful that someone reads them. lol. I am feeling better but still carry my gut problems. I have similar problems as your hubby. My last scab fell off two days ago from the Shingles but where my ear was infected the worst, there is still pain there. I sure hope this weather warms up. It’s bad enough, the lock down, but having to stay inside because it is so chilly is too much
