Businesses across the United States limiting hours or closing completely, colleges forcing students to leave their dorm rooms and return home, schools shutting their doors for weeks, and the federal government encouraging citizens and residents to avoid gatherings of 10 or more people. Oh, and did I mention the national toilet paper shortage? What a strange week this has been, and it’s only Monday!
Going to the grocery store and seeing dozens of empty shelves is a very surreal experience. One of our biggest concerns has been whether we will have enough food and milk for Little Buddy. Mr. Handsome and I can eat beans and rice if we have to, but Little Buddy is at the age where he is a bit picky. And on top of everything, he is teething, so he only eats soft foods.
I am curious to hear how coronavirus has impacted your life. Are you working from home? Trying to keep your kids busy indoors? And most importantly, do you have enough toilet paper?
Our thoughts and prayers are with the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. During this confusing time, we rejoice that God is still on the throne and still worthy of our praise. Coronavirus did not take Him by surprise. While there is sin and death in our world, God sees the bigger picture and has a plan to redeem and restore. Amidst the chaos, Mr. Handsome and I are grateful to have a loving, ever-present God.
