Is there an upside?

I know I am not the only one who is seeing it…an upside to all this fear and tension surrounding the continual spread of the Covid 19. People, for the most part, are a bit more friendlier, waving to people they don’t know and extending social distancing courtesy just about everywhere. People seem a bit more generous. We have seen the stories via the media of increased volunteerism and donating items when the call for assistance goes out. My prayer is that this current trend of selflessness will continue once this crisis is past. In the mean time, enjoy Spring as it unfolds around us and let the blooming trees and Spring flowers be a reminder that God is good – all the time, even in the midst of a pandemic.
