Yes, I am writing about it. The coronavirus. It is one of the big things taking up the spot light in the news. As I write this, there was one confirmed case of the virus at our local hospital, and there have been actions taken to prepare the school system in our town to close for 2 weeks. That is a decision that will probably come in a couple days the latest, but I am guessing they are waiting to see if this thing is going to spread in our town before making a firm decision.
As I watch the news, and see what is being posted on social media, it can be really easy to fall into fear about this thing, and I know that so many people are.

Sometimes you wonder if what you went through was really as bad as it seemed at the time, and that comment confirmed that, yes, the storm we had just went through was as bad as it seemed. And when your friend texts you later and says "your dad just told my dad you're all lucky to be alive"... yeah...
A couple weeks ago, Mike was trying to get Charlie to jump in a pool, but Charlie was scared to jump if his dad wasn’t holding his hand. As Charlie stood at the edge of the pool with his life vest on, Mike kept saying I am strong and courageous, I won't be afraid over [...]
As like many of you, I don't remember a ton from my days growing up, but there are distinct memories that have stayed with me my entire life. There are moments of joy and laughter, but also moments of fears and tears. I remember waking up in the middle of the night as a young [...]
It is about to get real friends, like over 1100 words real. Because I am worth the truth, I can trust. That is what God wrote on my mirror, and those are words that cut to the depths of my soul, and sounded great. These are words I could believe, and wanted to believe. Little did [...]
