Are You Putting Things Off “Until Tomorrow”?

I have noticed a disturbing trend that has been emerging in the last few weeks, and that’s the trend of putting things off. I am hearing. A lot of statements that begin with “Once I get this done” or “After I…” or “When I do this, then…” That sound familiar to you, too? It is captured brilliantly in a poem entitled “The Procrastinator” that is a bit further below in this post (thanks, Matthew Warner for drawing it to my attention!), but it is disturbing because it is a sign that despite COVID, people are going back to living and […]

“Enduring COVID and Practicing the Presence of God”

My husband woke up not feeling well with a pounding headache, low fever, and tiredness and simply thought he had a sinus infection. Two days later, I felt like I had a sore throat coming on and then woke up feeling like I had gotten run over by a bus. We went to the doctor to be tested, and then received the results that no one wants to hear right now—we were COVID positive. And so, our six-week journey of enduring COVID-19 began. And I say endure, because enduring truly was our experience. For me, I ran a low-grade fever […]
