How to Carry On

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

It seems each day we’ve more to fear,

A pandemic and an election year.

Sick of masking, washing, and being apart,

We want to hug friends-because it’s good for the heart

Kids study at home virtually and dad office is the spare bedroom,

Yoga class is on TV and grandma’s learned to Zoom.

Life still advances whether we’re ready or not.

I remind myself God knows the battles I’ve fought.

The only way I calm myself when things are out of hand,

Is calling on my faith that God is still in command.

Not sitting back, but standing up where I can,

Letting worries drop and scatter like grains of sand.

I was a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist for 40 years with a side passion for writing--poems, journals, etc. I now write for a weekly newspaper and have published essays and stories. As a trained Stephen Minister, I have picked up a lot of knowledge about humans, especially myself. I hope my writings will help others. I am a mother to four and grandmother to nine. I hope to see you all on my blog. If I'm not there, I am probably reading!
