COVID19
A coronavirus is a kind of common virus that causes an infection in your nose, sinuses, or
upper throat. Most coronaviruses aren't dangerous. COVID-19 is a disease that can cause
what doctors call a respiratory tract infection. It can affect your upper respiratory
tract (sinuses, nose, and throat) or lower respiratory tract (windpipe and lungs). It's caused by
a coronavirus named SARS-CoV-2.

COVID-19 was first identified late 2019 as a cluster of pneumonia cases caused by a new
coronavirus. Doctors have since learned that it’s a respiratory disease, one that especially
reaches into your respiratory tract, which includes your lungs.

The coronavirus outbreak may have you feeling lonely, isolated, stressed, and anxious.
Whether you’re social distancing or required to stay home, these tips may help you feel better.

• Be social online. Use digital platforms to connect with family & friends.
• Spend quality time with family. Board and video games make family time a blast.
• Take a break from news. Read a book or tap into your artistic abilities for a brain break.
• Change your mindset. What are some of the good parts of staying home?
• Get busy. Start or finish a project that has been put off for lack of time and energy.
• Go outdoors. Take a walk or bike trip in state parks for an outdoor adventure.
• Take care of yourself. Meditation, prayer and skincare routines are some of the #1 self-
care anecdotes to this quarantine.

The Construction of the New Normal
The Reconstruction Era in the USA in 1863-1877 was very uncomfortable for
the people of that time. New ideas for business, travel, the workforce and
leadership changed in what now seems like a blink of an eye. The growing
pains of this country are still felt in certain social and ethnic groups to this day.
Thought it was not a desired change for some, it was a necessary change for all.
This small timeframe compared to the biblical Arc of Redemption
Deconstruction into construction is but a moment in time. The Bible has many
periods, from Genesis to Revelation, where the ways of the people had to be
completely destroyed and families uprooted. There are times when the people
are determined to infuse old ways into a new way that God has required them
to follow.
Humans haven’t changed much since the books were written in the Bible. We
still cling to our habits and customs that separate us from each other and from
our Heavenly Father. He wants to shake things up again for us and renew our
relationships. He wants to first strip us of our destructive ways by destroying
our human norms. He wants us to seek His plans for our lives in the quiet
isolation periods that we seem to have a lot of in this quarantine.
Take this time to commune in prayer and meditation and ask God with your
whole heart how to better serve Him and His people. Ask Him what personal
idols need to be torn down in your life in order to build an acceptable alter for
His presence in all you do.
