While most people are dying to get out of their houses, I’m dying to hold onto this time as long as possible. It will take time and patience to reset my mind to leave the safety we’ve grown accustomed to in this crazy time of life. I know I will do it because I must. But remember those of us who are always terrified of germs and infections will have a much harder time letting go that those of you who do not stress about health daily.
I want to believe that because we’ve lost a child, and walked faithfully through the experience, God should protect me from ever experiencing that again. While the idea seems noble and compassionate, it’s far from the reality of life. I, of all people, should know that. God being a loving father doesn’t mean He can keep us from trials and difficulties anymore than we can prevent the woes of life from touching our own children.
