So…how are you dealing with the COVID-19 restrictions? We are finishing up the second full week of social distancing in our town and Sunday marked the third Lord’s Day that there have been no services at the Church. The staff meet in the sanctuary and the congregation live streams the worship time. It’s certainly not as good as live fellowship with other believers, but it is necessary in these trying times.
During the week my wife and I take a short drive every few days to places we enjoy spending time. The other day she met a friend for coffee on the town square and they walked along a local trail while visiting at the preferred social distance. When she got home she said, “Have you seen the flowers on the square?” “No, I haven’t”, was my reply so I was advised that I needed to grab my camera and go take a few photos. The tulips were in full bloom around the square which means they won’t be with us much longer, so I headed out the door with camera in hand and sure enough the square was ablaze with tulips. here are a few images from my photo walk around the town square. I must say, the flowers were Aww…some and a bright spot in my week.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
So the music theme this week is walking. I guess the photos above prove that I at least took a walk around the town square. We took another walk at one of the local parks, but those images have not been processed. It these days of no restaurants, movies, cross-fit gyms, or concerts, walking the neighborhood has become a very popular pastime for many Americans. Sheltering in place may give rise to a whole new fitness trend. Our cocker spaniel is enjoying the walks into areas of the neighborhood that she has never seen, but she is not a fan of social distancing. Lucy wants to play with everybody and their dog…literally. So what about walking songs. Well, if you live in Northwest Arkansas, walking to New Orleans can take quite awhile.
But if you think it’s a long walk to New Orleans, how about walking to Jerusalem?
Of course the stroll is kind of like walking only with a little rythum…sometimes very little rythum. Just sayin’
During difficult times whether in our personal lives or during a global pandemic, there is no better time to walk closer to the One who created us, loves us, and wants to spend eternity with us. Have a blessed week.
