Separation. Ouch! It’s hard. During these last months of Covid shutdown, we’ve all experienced more separation than we wanted - separation from loved ones, friends, acquaintances - doing our part to reduce the spread. We’ve lost dear friends, saints in our church; we’ve grieved that we were not able to visit them in person, telling them just one more time how much they meant to us and how loved they were.
As one of the elderly (grrrr - never thought of myself as that before), I’m acutely aware that if my spouse became seriously ill, I might not be able to be with him in the hospital. Scary!
But Paul had gone through trials much worse, yet he could still write these verses we read in Romans. He was convinced that God would always be with him. That gives me hope to get me through the “what ifs” that sneak up occasionally.
God’s peace be with you all!
