Greetings everyone, I hope you and your family are well. I miss our virtual interaction and reading your blogs. Please know, I have not abandon you or blogging; just trying to adjust to a different work environment and new routine.
Lord willing, I will catch up reading your blogs and respond to comments sooner than later. Also, I finally checked my emails and was pleasantly surprised by the increase in blog followers. Thank you all and welcome to our blogging family. You also will hear from me soon.
Sadly, we are seeing worldwide suffering from COVID-19. But let us not forget in our thoughts and prayers medical professionals who have left families behind to care for those affected by this crisis. Also, remember those who are homeless and suffering physically, mentally and spiritually.
I hope you find encouragement in the sermon URL and scriptures below. Until we meet again, please keep calm and hang in there. This too shall pass!
