Reflections on the coronavirus crisis pt 6: Life is a crisis

My husband has said many times during these past months: let's not decide or do this or that because we're in the middle of a crisis. To which I answer: when are we not in a crisis? Life is a crisis. 

I know it's more seasons of calm and crisis, waves that come and go... But you can never quite get your footing before another one comes. That's built into life. It's supposed to change us, open us up, transform us. 

I've learned during these months to rest a little each day during established prayer times, exercise, creativity and bonding with my husband and kids. And not wait for "that calm time" that will supposedly come during vacation or after a crisis. It's not gonna happen. 

"He continued: “Go, eat rich foods and drink sweet drinks, and allot portions to those who had nothing prepared; for today is holy to our Lord. Do not be saddened this day, for rejoicing in the LORD is your strength!” (Nehemiah 8:10)
