“Yesterday was plain awful.” as Little Orphan Annie once said. It sometimes feels that way, but some days really are worse than others. We wake up with positive thoughts, which are suddenly cut short by bad news. We go through the day with high hopes only to have them come crashing down in just an instant. Scarlet O’Hara had her own way of dealing with the struggles of every day. She’d turn on the charm, use her feminine wiles and be able to face each rising of the sun with the confidence that she could win some unsuspecting young man to her way of thinking and save the day because of it.

I am the naive one, who believes that laughter is my secret weapon, however lately there has been very little to laugh about. The outside world seems to be my enemy. I’m given to bouts of sadness, loneliness and helplessness. Usually I don’t have trouble shaking those feelings, but this has been one heck of a time for everyone. Our sadness can easily turn to depression, frustration, loss of hope and even take us to dark places we don’t need to visit.

We’ve been experiencing a time like I’ve never seen during my entire life. Things have shut down. We can’t visit our favorite restaurant, theatre or venue of entertainment. We’re stuck in a rut, which far outweighs the usual cabin fever we usually experience at this time of the year. When you become a slave to old movies and mystery shows that kill off more than three people per episode, you’re trying to escape, but only by putting yourself in one of those rabbit holes. When the daily news becomes reason for you to fret – when politics gets in the way of your enjoyment – when anger festers to the point of lost relationships – when isolation separates you from those you love – when you’re told to be tolerant of every kind of behavior except for the beliefs you hold dear – when people who have touched your life die – when egos get in the way – all those things intensify with being in a state of being alone.

I am fortunate to have a spouse who I can share my frustrations with. He has always been supportive of my feelings and concerned for both for my spiritual and physical welfare. Yet if I were to be on my own, I still have someone who can make life bearable, because He’s experienced so much more of life than I ever have. Tomorrow is another day, but with Jesus, it can be the best day ever.

Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Amen to that. This time has been hard for so many, in so many ways. I live alone, but this has caused me to lean ever harder on Jesus. Thankfully He can carry any burden we pass on to Him (though I think His hands have been pretty full of late lol!)
    When I feel down I play a you-tube post I have bookmarked. It’s of my brothers and sisters around the world, in countries affected by covid singing “Amazing Grace” together. It always brings tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart to know that we are all in this together.

      What a wonderful outlook you have. Some days can be overwhelming, especially in the time of isolation. Mental illness and suicide is at an all time high. We need Jesus every day.

    Yep; I’ve been there, still am there, and am doing my best to escape. One day at a time helps. Keeping our eyes on the cross also helps. J.

  3. Thank goodness for tomorrow’s. Kathy, your thoughts are shared by many including my wife and myself. We carry on, but the isolation is wearing us down. God blesses us with the sunrise of another precious opportunity . . . tomorrow!

      There are days when I wake up and wonder why. What does God have in mind for me in a world of masked faces who can’t even touch. I will carry on as long as He intends me to, but like you say, it wears on all of us.
