Just when we were ready to get back to our real lives again, the rioters have given us one more good reason to stay home. What are you doing to stay strong and healthy? Now that more reports are coming out showing that this is less of a threat than originally thought, the best plan for beating COVID is the same as for beating every illness!
We were told to “flatten the curve”, but some of us have curved up that which used to be flattened!
While we want to be good stewards of our bodies, we also need to sift between all the conflicting information to get down to what feels right.
The most misguided charades are being perpetrated by the mentality that the government needs to do something to save us. Ultimately, it’s not up to your government or even your doctor to keep you healthy. It’s up to you!
It’s time for us to live our lives again and be happy again. This is a time to be kind, helpful, clean out your house and give your stuff to people who are less fortunate.
The most hurtful part of this virus is the dissension between people who are supposed to have a common goal. When our Country has been attacked or survived wars, there was a prevailing ideology that we want the common good. Now so many families are divided on conflicting “facts”. There is definitely a crisis of leadership in our Country.
Let’s hope that this crisis has exposed the bad leaders who used the crisis to push for more socialism. Let’s alao hope the crisis revealed the courage of those who deserve to be returned to office. One of my favorite leaders is Franklin Graham.
Is there any leader during this COVID crisis you admire the most?

A LITTLE BIT OF HUMOR
Here we are at the Mid Rivers Mall — our store is re-opened! Yea! If the masks work, why isn’t everyone reopened? If they don’t work, why are people forced to wear them?
Wearing a mask for COVID may be the latest fashion statement, but are they causing other problems as well? The main stream news is not reporting on the downside to wearing masks. Masks could put you more at risk for getting the disease. One person got a dangerous MRSA infection on her face from wearing a mask all day every day. Another person was dizzy and eventually passed out at work from a lack of oxygen.
Forcing people to wear a mask is 100% unconstitutional! It should always be respected as a personal decision. Shouldn’t we respect people for whatever choice they feel is right for them? I am shocked by all the businesses that would rather harm their businesses by turning away paying customers, when it is wrong of us to demand to know their private personal health history.
Years ago we used to sing the hymn, “This is My Father’s World”. We don’t sing that much anymore and, depending on where you are, it doesn’t look too recognizable as our Father’s world. When the wicked govern, the people are going to groan. When the righteous people rule the people rejoice. Obviously, God meant for His people to be in charge of His garden!
Where is the church? It’s like the Boogie man said, “Boo”, and they ran away! We need more courage than this. Now, in Kansas City, the mayor has demanded that churches turn over the list of all the members, attendees, phone numbers and other private information for the purpose of tracking and surveillance. We should be horrified! It looks like the goal is to suppress church attendance.
It always amazes me when people say they don’t believe in God because they can’t see Him. Yet we can’t see germs either and people do not question the reality of the disease.
We don’t want anyone to get sick from this. However, this is a political virus as well as a physical virus. The effects of the physical virus will be over before we recover from the Socialism and the sudden lurch forward of big government. This Bakersfield doctors’ video explains why this overreaction is doing more harm than good. You can watch it here:
Have you had enough of this quarantine yet? I have to admit, I am enjoying a reason to slow my life down and reconnect with my kids, my kitchen and my piano. I’m also enjoying the lower gas prices and the ability to drive on our roads with much less traffic! It’s been great having my son home from school. What a relief to not have to wake up at 6:00 every morning! We’re having a wonderful time. It’s been so pleasurable, I am starting to wonder if we will be disappointed when we have to go back to work!
Yet, as much as I am enjoying my badly needed vacation, we must acknowledge that there are many injustices happening every day. As the numbers are being tallied, the reports show that the virus was not nearly as bad as predicted. While we are finding out the worst is already past, local governments are way behind the curve in implementing new, more aggressive and more hostile measures. Many have gone “hog wild” with a blatant disregard for human rights. Some are shutting down parks, where there is no problem and arresting innocent people for merely being outside! It appears the goal has changed to augment human suffering and cause the greatest harm possible.
Are you depressed with this shut down? When is it enough? What has happened to us?
I never thought I’d see the day when we would cancel church so easily. In some states there are police officers taking down license plate numbers if they see cars at a church. In other states, they’re trying to fine people. Yet, they are still allowing people to shop at Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target, Costco and grocery stores.
Where are all the people who used to scream, “Separation of Church and State!”
As this coronavirus continues, my hope is that we will emerge on the other side stronger and braver and more godly than ever before. Some people are asking if we were ripe for God’s judgement. With how we’re acting, how can we not expect His judgement? Some parts are so bad, we should cringe.
This is a political virus. Our political immune system is broken down. We are now vulnerable to this virus because we have an underlying condition. We lost our fear of God. We’ve lost our fear of big government (a.k.a. Socialiam). We’ve got broken families and broken churches. Without our political antibodies, we’re vulnerable to anything that comes along.
No, she is not shooting him with a gun. She’s shooting him with a thermometer! People cannot enter the St. Louis City Hall unless they can prove they have no fever. I’m not as worried about the Coronavirus as I am worried about the government ruining my life and my business. While some people are busy at the stores buying up all the toilet paper, our Congress was busy trying to pass new laws and our Governors were trying to declare emergencies in our states. Our schools and most restaurants and churches are closed.
When our Country was attacked on 9/11, the government spent huge sums of taxpayer dollars to permanently change our way of life, including the TSA, which offers mandatory harassment of all the passengers before they can ride airplanes. Are the “Big Government” proponents using this to take away more of our freedoms?
In the news this week, we now have this going on in our military:
“The United States Air Force updated its official dress code policy this month, in observance of religious practices, to allow military personnel to wear turbans or hijabs as a part of the uniform…. In addition to religious apparel, members also can request permission to have unshorn beards and unshorn hair. If the length of the beard exceeds 2 inches, it must be “rolled and or tied” to meet the new standards.”
On the surface it appears that the management is trying to be nice to everybody, but where is our discipline? This “political correctness” is going to kill us.
The military shows NO TOLERANCE when it comes to forcing our military to be injected with vacinations. Even if people have bad reactions, they have to throw their careers in the trash if they refuse even the flu vaccine! Take the jab or you will be discharged! No options!
As a military mom, this makes me angry. When someone puts on the uniform, it is supposed to mean loyalty to the Country first.
