Flu

Corona Virus symbol

Some words we like

Others not so much

These days it’s true

There’s one word

No one wants to hear

“CoronaVirus”

We can’t stop our ears

From hearing it’s sound

Or close our eyes

To block it from sight

But we can focus

Our minds to not dwell

On this dismal word

We can use prayer

To ask for our God’s help

And for His wisdom

And strength at this time

Syllabic Verse

Praying this word is soon no longer part of our vocabulary.

Stay Positive

Sign “Keep Smiling and Carry On”

Times are sad

But dont dwell on on the bad

Stay calm and do your part

Keep hope alive in your heart

Don’t let fear creep in

Stay positive to win

Soon too, this will pass

Vanish as vaporous gas

We must stand strong en masse

Provision

Three Sparrows

At a time when

Gatherings are discouraged

Sparrows meet together

Feasting on food provided

By their Father in heaven

Tanka

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

(Seeing these birds in the parking lot at my local grocery was a great reminder that God will provide during these unstable times and like the birds I should not worry about what I will eat or drink.)

World’s Spinning Wheel

Spinning Ferris Wheel

What I’m hearing so unreal!

Things happening so surreal!

So to God I appeal,

Ask Him To reveal,

Just how I should deal,

With this strange ordeal,

And still try to be genteel.

He said “ Don’t let it your faith steal,

Nor let fear loudly peal.

My word is true and real,

And My hand can surely heal.

So don’t live by how things feel

For to Me all things must kneel.“
