It’s Friday! And we’re closing in on Week 2 of staying home. This was *supposed* to be almost the end of the 2-week school closure. Now, we know that this is the beginning (of at least another month). But we are good. There are some frustrating and stressful moments, of course. There are things (mostly people) that we miss dearly. But we (the 6 of us) are still together, and we are doing OK. Thankful for the weekend – a break from homeschooling.


Abba Father, You are our Beauty, Goodness, and Truth. Especially during this time, I see them in the simplest places. We continue to seek Your presence, every day. Stay with us, abide in us – Emmanual. Amen.
