Kate said adjust
Whew! Covid19 has brought a lot of adjustments. Amen? How are we handling them?
I must admit the adjustments have not been difficult for me. I work from home and never get out of the house Mon-Fri anyway.
First world problems
Adjusting to empty shelves at the grocery store is rather strange for America, unless you’ve been in South Florida during a hurricane threat. Adjusting to the fear and panic on tv can be avoided by pushing the power button.
We can adjust how much screen time we spend and definitely be monitoring how much screen time the kiddo’s are getting. There is an overload of negative out there. Time to get out the books, the crayons and coloring books, sidewalk chalk, and allot for fun in the sun.
The most important adjustment
During this extremely difficult time the most important adjustment to make is our attitude. Personally, my age bracket has seen many crises and we have lived to tell about them. This too shall pass – I believe that with all my heart. But, we must choose joy. That is an adjustment every one of us can make before our feet hit the floor and what an awesome lesson to teach our children.
And, at the end of each day
We will be glad we made the right choice. I saw this graphic on Instagram and it cracked me up – I do hope you find the same humor in it as I did!

There have been more adjustments than we all could have thought possible 🙂 But the Lord is helping us all to adjust. For me, it is with my Bible open and before me throughout each day. It has been the only way to maintain my focus and keep my soul in peace. Blessings to you and Lowell! xo
Thanks Jo’…to all of you up there. Peace. Love. Hope. xoxo

Thanks for the bit of humor at the end! I’m Debbie! 😉
We are homeschooling here in FL…limited this week…more next week when the public schools start to offer virtual options. We are doing fine, and we are thankful for health and wealth. We are blessed.
Jennifer, I’m still laughing at that picture!!!
Julie Little says
Great thoughts, and the pic made me smile! Blessings today.
Julie, I’m still smiling at it!
Thanks for making me laugh! A cheerful heart is good medicine. Prov 17:22.
With God’s help & His Word , I will choose JOY today!
PS I thought my daughter looked older !!!!
Seriously!!!! You better not let her hear that!

Twist my ears and poke my nose,
lift my beard unto the sky;
thus, perhaps, reception grows,
adjutments to my inner eye
that sees that which it wants to see,
and won’t behold the strength of grace;
it clings with mule-like obstinacy
to its chosen place.
Perhaps it takes a perfect storm
to break the shackles loved of old
and step from what was safe and warm
into the blue-white Arctic cold
where God and high adventure wait…
let’s go, my friend, it’ not too late!
This is good but YOUR post was wonderful!
Andrew Budek-Schmeisser says
