Life, as I see it: Day 7 of 14

It’s day 7 of our state-imposed home quarantine. Since we traveled home to North Dakota from California we must isolate ourselves for 14  days.

Even amid the chaos, there are blessings.

Since we’ve lived here part time already, our home is comfortable even without our other things being delivered.

The movers picked up our stuff in California more than a week ago. As far as we know it’s still in a warehouse somewhere. We’re not sure when or if we’ll see it again but we’re not stressing over it. It is what it is.

Even if they deliver it this week, it’ll have to go in the garage since no one can come in our house.

I’m OK with that too.

As much as I hate not getting to spend time with my family, I’d rather we be healthy now so that we can have years ahead.

I messaged with a couple of friends on the East Coast. One is getting over the virus. The other is well, but living a totally different life in New York City.

Today, as I write, it is Palm Sunday morning. Like many of the churches, First Christian Church of Colusa, broadcast its service on social media. I especially enjoyed this one because Pastor Samuel Krouse, bringing the service, is my brother-in-law. It was a good message. Samuel knows me well enough to know my favorite part was when he sang “Adoration,” a favorite song of his and mine as well. Beautiful.

Hearing Samuel sing brings back a lot of memories. Number one, I always marvel at just how good he sings. We tend to forget from listen to listen.

For me, music is an integral part of worship. It tends to draw me nearer to God.

So this morning, I may have gotten up and felt a little sorry for myself that I couldn’t go to Palm Sunday service. There again, we are blessed. Because of technology, the service comes to us.

We’re looking at another week or more before we can leave the house.

That’s OK. We can be thankful we have homes to nestle down in.

Life is good today, even in quarantine.
