As most of you know I love reading and constantly feeding my mind. Positive energy has to be a very strong part of me as it energizes every part of my being. I am reading A Religion of One’s Own at the present. I’ve tried to read this book once before but immediately wasn’t interested so here I go again and almost put it down until I found myself half way through it. It seems to be what I need right now while unable to gather with others at my House of Worship during this pandemic. This pandemic seems to be out of control due to us humans resisting having control by masking up and social distancing for a short period of time here in the States. Take time in this season of frustration to find peace and harmony within by doing something that brings you joy while being separated from loved ones whether family, friends or partners. Pray for our healthcare workers and all first responders as their jobs have become even more difficult as many of them have contracted this disease as well, many of which also lost their lives while trying to take care of others. I’m saddened by how many people disregard human life while only concentrating on their personal bottom line and/or need for entertainment. We have all been affected by this pandemic in every way especially economically, however our lives are worth so much more than our need to be entertained by sitting in a Restaurant and or Bar. Many businesses have had to close, many others are struggling except BIG Business that can afford any disaster. However just as our voices have been heard at the ballot box, when we stop supporting such venues our voices can and will be heard again with our dollars. I pray for all who have lost a loved one to this disease as well as those who are struggling to recover. I pray the vaccine comes soon and is above all effective. I continue to give Praise for Spirit hearing and answering our prayers.
