Same storm, different boats

Week 10 already - you’ve done brilliantly well and I think we can say there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Yeah!

I think we need to be very careful as we come slowly out of lockdown and recognise how different this has been for each of us. We’ve been in the same storm, but very different boats. So be careful - Jesus says “Do not judge and you will not be judged” 👍

Paul says in Thessalonians “encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone... always try to be KIND to each other“

🛑 Some people don’t agree with opening...that’s okay. Be Kind.

🏡 Some people are still planning to stay home...that’s okay. Be Kind.

🦠 Some are still scared of getting the virus and a second wave happening...that’s okay. Be Kind.

😳 Some people already lost their jobs and businesses. Be kind.

😷 Some will wear masks for weeks...that’s okay. Be Kind.

💅🏻 Some people will rush out to get their hair or nails done...that’s okay. Be Kind.

❤️ The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay. Be Kind.

We each have a different story. If you need to stay home, stay home...But Be Kind .

If you need to go out, just respect others when in public and Be Kind!

We all are in a different mental state than we were months ago. So remember, Be Kind.

Kindness is a fruit of the spirit and we need to keep practicing being kind. It makes such a difference. You are a lovely group and your kindness will be appreciated 😍

I hope you’re getting your vitamin D from the sun ☀️, your daily excerise, and some social interaction. If you’re struggling with any of these, please ask God to help you 😉

Take good care of yourselves and amazing... be Kind
