When Everything Stops

When we returned from visiting the kids in Colorado we learned the New Mexico Department of Health was asking anyone who came into the state to self-quarantine for 14 days. So, we’re doing just that. It’s not that hard as all the things we normally do are also stopped for now.

We’re trying to spend some time outside in our beautiful weather, near 70 degrees today. We went for a walk with Jessie and then later went out into the back where I took some pictures.

First, a picture of Jessie relaxing in the sun…

Then a picture of her doing one of her favorite things… digging in the dirt…

Betty and I are both introverts so we enjoy the peace and quiet, but we’re mindful of those whose jobs and income are affected by all this.

We’re praying for those who make decisions to make wise decisions soon that balance the need to stand against this virus with the need to ensure our economy, which is still fundamentally strong, will recover.

We’re confident our country will recover and be stronger than ever through God’s grace.

  1. So sorry. Stay well. Praying for you and your larger family, especially the Kentucky and Tennessee contingent.

    I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. PS 27:13-14 NIV

  2. We have pretty much confined ourselves to home but do drive to walking trails for a change of scenery. The kids won’t let us go to the store in any case!
    I believe the next week will give us a better idea of the impact this will have and then we can adjust the current restrictions. Ohio has been fairly aggressive and Texas much less so. We’ll see what happens.
    I just know for sure that I am not in control!

  3. What about groceries? Hope your cupboard was stocked. We have been a couple of times and shelves have been picked over.. Finally had toilet paper in Kings.
