What I mean by this is: if “living” means never getting to see your loved ones again, or even if you see them, not being able to hug them, then what is it all for? Maybe social distancing allows us to live longer, but I have been feeling lately like I would rather enjoy relationship with those that I love, even if it means that I will live a shorter life.
Of course I don’t want to put anyone else in harms way and I would never want anyone to die such a horrendous death as what has been described about Covid-19. That is where the dilemma lies. What do we do? How do we proceed?
Now there is word of another potential virus “coming soon to theaters near you” with the new swine flu.
I think what it comes down to is this…scripture tells us that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind…I think that my way of proceeding is to go about life wisely, carefully, but to still ‘live’ within those parameters. To limit exposure, but not to cut it off. to be around others that understand how to exercise caution. I, like everyone else, am still trying to figure it out. What I am not willing to do though is to lose time with those that I love, because once that time is gone, you can’t get it back.
I will also continually submit myself and my plans to Papa God as ask for His protection and blessing to everything I put my hand to.
