This year started off with a freaking bang. I was transitioning to being a full-time mom again. And transitioning from sending my middle schooler to school, to being my middle schooler’s school.
And then, a little thing called Covid-19.
Was this virus going to get us? How do we get groceries?
HOW WILL WE WIPE OUR BUTT???
2 months into getting the hang of this schooling at home business, ALL schools in the area were sent home and I now had 2 at home. The husband joins and it’s one big happy(ish) family over here.
Even though things were uncertain, I could see the hand of God working even then. The very thing that I had been missing, family time. Connecting with each other. It was like a fog had lifted. We prayed together for the all of the unknown happening in the world and for the health of those we love, and those around the world.
We were together and we made the most of it. We took walks together daily and we played a LOT of cards. Praise Jesus for cards.
The only thing that was certain is that things were certainly changing. Not only in our lives, but in the world around us too. I know that if you’re reading this, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Everyone has been experiencing it. But what we can certainly lean on is this:
And those who know your name put their trust in you,– Psalm 9:10
for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
We still, just keep trusting in Him. He’s not surprised and he hasn’t forsaken us.
Little did I know that this was not the only the change that the Lord had in store for us in 2020.
