Happy Good Friday. It feels a bit strange going to service online, but the beautiful thing about Jesus is we get to meet Him anywhere because of what He did for us on this day so long ago.
I am curious how you're doing? I've been praying for you and hope you're doing ok.
We haven't chatted for a while because I've been a bit behind. My husband and I got COVID. The real one.
You probably have heard of plenty of really sad stories. I wanted to share ours to hopefully encourage you and add one story to the "FAITH pile" in your heart.
How do we know we got it? Well after a grocery store cashier sneezed on my husband a few days later we got flu-like symptoms and then we both lost our taste and smell!
(JFYI it's SO weird to not be able to taste or smell anything).
For me, I had super mild symptoms (thanking God!) and my husband has fairly mild symptoms though he's yet to be 100%.
When she found out me, my husband or my 2 sons (ages 5 and 6) hadn't crossed the threshold of our cozy NYC apartment in 13 days and we've had a peaceful and contented existence throughout, (by God's grace)... a friend asked "what is your secret weapon?"
Well, that's what I share in our conversation today, so you have it too: "Your COVID Secret Weapon".
I think there are a few things you can focus on amidst the chaos, anxiety and stress that will benefit you, your marriage, your health and ultimately the Kingdom of God.
(At the end of the broadcast I share the specific health things I do that I think helped our situation as well, in case you're interested in hearing my opinions on it -- immune health is a personal passion of mine.)
Spoiler alert: I talk about intimacy being vital during this time.
So I would love to have you listen for encouragement and PRACTICAL insights on how to use this time to HEAL your marriage.
Blessings & love,
