During this time of spreading Corvid-19 virus we all need to heed the precautions set before us. In addition to the usual washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes, stay home if you are feeling sick, and stay away from those who are sick.  Contact your doctor if you have fever, cough, and shortness of breath.  Let’s also think about our psychological/mental health.  It’s suggested that we stick to a routine (as it reducing decision fatigue so you don’t have to decide what to do with your time,) such as getting up at a usual time, making your bed, and eating a good breakfast.  Close the social distancing as best we can by using social media to stay connected with friends and family, call to check on those who live alone, write a letter, plan a virtual dinner party, or virtual social time.  What also keeps a balance is one of my favorite Bible texts:    Philippians 4:8 (The Message version)   “Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”

 Live Gently, Be Well, and Be Blessed!
