My dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me # 5 – Don’t wait to say what needs to be said

I finished my last post with this challenge: “Life is short, live with that truth in mind”.  If you have been reading my posts you know that I went through a time in my life where I didn’t want anything to do with God or the church.  I have been thinking about my dad aContinue reading “My dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me # 5 – Don’t wait to say what needs to be said”

My dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me – # 4 – Life is short – Life is a gift

My dad continues to slowly recover from the coronavirus. He has now been allowed to return to the nursing home he’s been living in for the last few years. Amazing! Some who have recovered from Covid, who are about the same age as my dad, have taken 6-8 weeks to recover. Thanks for all who’veContinue reading “My dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me – # 4 – Life is short – Life is a gift”

My Dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me # 3 – We need more than life can offer.

I grew up in a Christian family in Bristol, England. When I was little, going to church was as normal as going to school. My extended family all went to the same church.  I distinctly remember the point as a child coming to realize that everyone didn’t grow up like me. Many people didn’t attendContinue reading “My Dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me # 3 – We need more than life can offer.”

My dad continues to be seriously ill but stable as he battles Covid: 19. My mum said this morning that they even had a little conversation which is huge progress!!

TheContinue reading “My dad has Covid – 5 things God is showing me # 2 – God is close –”

My dad has CoVid 19 – 5 things God is showing me

I grew up in England and moved to the United States over 20 years ago. All of my extended family still live in England. I am so grateful for technology that allows us to stay in touch even with the 6 hour time difference.  On Tuesday, May 11, I woke up and checked my phoneContinue reading “My dad has CoVid 19 – 5 things God is showing me”

Peace in a Covid world

Doesn’t it seem like there are a million voices all clamoring for our attention right now?  Just this week I watched a video from some experts saying social distancing doesn’t make any difference. Then I saw another clip where others are saying you’ve got to maintain social distancing for the foreseeable future otherwise the deathContinue reading “Peace in a Covid world”

God is at work in the mess – Betty

In these days when many of us are not around a lot of people it’s easy to start perceiving that we are alone. A while ago I had an amazing encounter that I thought a lot about during the last few days. This experience reminded me that we are not alone. As we are raising supportContinue reading “God is at work in the mess – Betty”

Is God silent right now?

This is such a unique time, is it not? Can any one of us remember a time like this? Many of us have been impacted in big and small ways. Some of us have had to face huge lines at the store wondering where we can buy toilet paper, others have lost their jobs andContinue reading “Is God silent right now?”

Stories that impacted me: “Try not to worry but dad’s had a heart attack”

When someone says “don’t worry”…. What do you do?  I remember a few years ago I was sitting at my desk working and a close family member called me. I love this family member very much but their words stopped me in my steps that day: They said “Don’t worry, but dad’s in the hospital,Continue reading “Stories that impacted me: “Try not to worry but dad’s had a heart attack””
