Hi out there, all you invisible dancers!

It's been weird not seeing your smiling faces and happy feet for such a long time...and it's going to be longer, too. Obviously I don't know when life will return to normal, but I don't foresee anything significantly changing until around summer, at the soonest.

So now Covid has transformed us all into hunter-gatherers: hunting for toilet paper and gathering the latest news. All this strangeness can seep into your being, like a chill into your bones. That's just about unavoidable. I feel it too. But then I remember some good words from a preacher: "You can't help if a bird lands on your head, but you don't have to let him make a nest there." So knock that sucker off!

When you feel it all weighing you down, stopping you in your tracks, it's like being in the middle of the dance floor and forgetting your steps. But just as in dancing, you can't just stand there! (I mean, you can, but that would be plain silly.) Do a quick ball change, or rock step, or something. Do what you have to do to move...move to your Bible, and take heart in words like: God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the sea...Psalm 46:1,2

And after you've moved to the Bible, keep on movin'. Get up out of your seat and go for a walk, wave at your socially-distant neighbors. Do that project you've put off for two years. Throw on some music and dance around the room with all your being. Make your heart smile. Covid can affect your life, but anxiety can end your living.  

I can't stress this enough about stress. Remember this: Trust in the Lord with all our heart, lean not unto your own understanding. In other words, don't rely on your own conclusions, or the conclusions of the people on the screen. Trust in our Lord Jesus. He loves you.

And through all this, Easter still comes. Like the sunrise, it's a reminder that God provides, and God cares. Easter is the most important celebration we have. For without Jesus coming back to life, Christianity would be just another set of rules to follow to try and earn our way into Heaven. But He rose from the grave to conquer death, to offer us the certainty of eternal life with Him if we accept Him. We don't have to do good to be accepted, we do good because He's accepted us.

The earth may give way, the mountains may fall into the sea, but God is good, He is good indeed!

Hey friends, try this: take three pennies. Spread them out to form a triangle, with each penny about a foot apart. Make one of them represent you. Make another represent a romantic interest. And the remaining one is God. Move yourself towards God. Then move the romantic interest towards God too. As you both get closer to God, what happens to the two of you? You get closer to each other. How about that? And because you used pennies to demonstrate this fact, it all make cents! See you all soon.
