  1. Encouraging words much needed after a year of isolation. I am so thankful for the blessing of friendship in my sisters in Christ I have been able to stay in touch with.

    • Gail,

      Never have I been more grateful for the virtual tools we have to remain connected; I supposed back in the day, we would’ve at least had a landline. But now, in addition to an old fashioned phone call, we have texts, emails, and FaceTime capability. What gifts! And, yes….friends to stay in touch with ARE a gift!! 🙂

      Thank you for reading and leading off in comments today! 🙂

  2. Thank you for the wonderful encouragement! Stay the course Brother and Sister’s.

  3. Robin,
    Thank you for being the encourager with your words today! May God Bless You! ❤️

  4. Robin thank you for what you wrote so true. We have the best friend ever who will look after us no matter what. That is Jesus. But I am always during the Covid even when I first heard about brought back to story of Jesus feeding 5000 plus people not including the Children that would have been there that day. With 5 loaves and 2 fish. As I was shown one day months back. Through the Holy Spirit this from that story. The people came that day to hear the True King of the world speak. That was the one and only Jesus. They didn’t care about Germs and wearing masks. As in those days probably masks were not heard of. No one was fussy that you had wash your hands. They were all instreasted in hearing Jesus speak that day. Then Jesus told the disciples to tell them all to sit down on the grass. They did as they were told. They didn’t care the people and if there had been kids there that day as I say there would have been. Who was sitting beside who. What insects were on the grass. If the person beside them had washed their hands or if they not washed their hands. If had a cough or running nose especially the kids.They all trusted and knew in their hearts that the Kind of world Jesus that they had come to here that day speak. Would take care of them. If anything was to happen to any of them. Then Jesus bless the food and broke it. It was passed around. All the people and if kids that were there that day ate and were satisfied. Did they care no. Did anything happen to them no. But today if we saw because of Covid someone with dirty hands or they not washed them. They were lifting food to eat we give of. Because we know they not washed them. We not be wanting to eat anything they touched. So who are we putting our trust in? The people that day who went to here the King of the world speak. Didn’t care about Germs. They put their trust in the King of the world. Who was Jesus. As they knew he would let nothing happen to them. So we have the best friend in Jesus who will during this period of time we live in if we put our trust in let nothing happen to us. As the song says. You get it on YouTube. “What a Friend we have in Jesus” we have a wonderful friend in Jesus the best ever. Regards of what is going on in our world at the moment. Jesus loves us we can trust him for everything. We don’t need to get caught up in Germs and Covid. All that is going on with it. We just need to put our trust in Jesus. Thank you for excellent reading. Keep you all incourage in my prayers. Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  5. I have no doubt that the enemy has used isolation as a weapon against us. Even not seeing smiles has affected us negatively. Lack of corporate worship has been disheartening.

    But God has used this time to make death a real possibility for a society who held on to their earthly life without addressing the truth that life is but a breath–that they would die.
    Jackson Senjonga, Ugandan minister, had said of the Americans that we “aren’t desperate enough . . addicted to s sprit of ease and comfort “. I think covid has helped to change a lot of that.

  6. Robin,

    I didn’t fear the pandemic, civil & political unrest. There is a church sign that says faith is the absence of fear. I know wholeheartedly that God is in control. He decides who will be president & when this pandemic will end. It is Jesus who allows trials in our lives to grow, strengthen us & to woo us back to Him. Just look at Job.

    Paul & I could be twins. Missed my church tribe & hugging them. Used my time to pray for & encourage them. Sent emails, texts & cards telling of my love for them. Also made new friends at my in laws church. For a while they were doing Sunday services. I went & got involved. It was my way of staying connected to Christ.

    Praising God for computers, Face Time, Zoom & Face Book. Ways to stay connected to one another & not be isolated. We were never meant to be an island. God meant us for community. He wants us to encourage one another consistently.

    Blessings 🙂
