When I was a little girl, my best friend’s mom would say to us, “Be still now” in a soft pleading yet firm voice.
As the pandemic rages on, my mind wanders and wonders while my body is still.
I have more questions than answers.
In addition to flattening the Covid-19 curve, what if staying home was the only way:
- to get global attention
- to quiet the earth
- to get people to pray at the same time
- to help us see nature’s beauty anew
- to give bees a fighting chance
- to amplify what matters
- to help us value relationships
- to assess how we use time
- to see the unseen
- to say thank you to those we once took for granted
What if the graduating seniors (we have one in our home) need this time to have conversations with their parents that would have been missed otherwise?
What if being nearly alone on Easter removes distractions and opens your path to God?
What if this is our time to dial direct to our Higher Power?
Normally I would be cleaning and cooking, but this Easter I will meditate on verses, pray and watch church online.
May peace be with you.
May love hug the earth,
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
