I am not trying to post about religion - as everyone has their own beliefs.
So far, you haven't seen me post about the Coronavirus. I will mention this today - then you probably won't see me talk about it any more. I also don't talk politics on here - maybe just my insight now and then.
I am so over all the posts seen every where about this 'new' virus. People are in panic mode. It seems that all have forgotten what it was like with Ebola, Sars, Swine, Bird virus breakouts. Everyone panicked then too.
I understand this is new and scary - but panic gets us no where and solves nothing.
My goodness, H1N1/A and influenza B have already hit 29 million people THIS season (2019/2020). 280,00 or so have been hospitalized from then and over 16,000 have died. Why is no one talking about that??
New and not understood - sells!!!!!! I believe there is an agenda (my opinion only).
The news has zoomed in on this and it sure has put other things on the back burner. I find it odd that the things that were so all fired important (basically in politics) have gone by the way-side. There is always a new crisis in the news and it takes our minds off other things. How soon we forget.
IF we all have the faith that we say we do - why are we worried? Seriously.
I do believe in making our life on this earth as pleasant as possible and making it the best quality we can - but we are told by the Good Book - that our days are numbered and our last day was known when we were born.
We can't avoid it!!!! Make it as happy and pleasant as possible - and just go forward. You aint getting out of here alive.
I keep seeing stories every where that are only in-sighting fear. Many are full of misinformation. Some people just want to feel the power they get by placing fear in your lives and hearts. DON'T let them.
Shortages on the store shelves - well, yes there is. People panic and hoard. Not doing anyone any good. Things will get back to normal. Learn to adjust and make do until they do.
Masks - 'I can't find masks'. CDC says stop buying them! They say they don't stop you from getting germs - they prevent people from spreading germs. They are to be used by the sick and medical personnel - who deal with hundreds of sick people daily.
Keep your hands and stuff clean and washed. Keep your hands away from eyes, mouth, and nose when out in public.
If you are relatively healthy odds are you have nothing to worry about.
Stock market drop - it will go back up. You LOSE nothing as long as you leave your money alone. All things rebound.
JUST DON'T PANIC!
This is all you hear about now - the news is causing panic. People are causing panic.
YET, the Olympics are still on schedule for that very part of the world that this all started. Are they really that worried? Kind of makes me wonder.
WHY do I mention this? Have faith that all will be OK. God is in control.
It doesn't matter if it is the flu, an accident, cancer, your heart, whatever...…. when your day comes, you aren't going to stop it.
I truly learned this first hand last April. A beautiful, sunny, warm 'normal' Spring day and an odd and crazy set of circumstances changed my life forever!
I questioned myself and my actions for months. What could I have done to change things? What could Glen have done to change things? Why? PTSD took over my life. I couldn't get past that day - it played over and over in my head, just about 24/7.
I finally set and prayed and prayed and asked for God's divine hand to help me. He helped me realize and understand that nothing could have been done - that was my love's day to go Home.
I still miss him terribly and I am so lonely - but I do know God has this. My faith let's me know that and gets me through each day.
So I now know and believe that I am not to fret over things I can not control. That is just the way it is.
I want you to know that you don't have to worry and panic over things that happen in this world - eventually they all work the way they are SUPPOSE to. Do we understand why? NO. Do we always agree? NO. Do we have complete control? NO.
Control what you CAN. Always be prepared for anything - illness, financial problems, loss of job, etc. Not just one thing. Make this a way of life on a daily basis - not just in crisis. Stay ahead of things and you won't be sorry.
PLEASE don't create doom and gloom on a daily basis.
Spread happiness, love and good will every moment of every day - it is what helps make the world a pleasant place to be.
Love each day and know you can't change what is supposed to be .
I won't be addressing politics or the flu on any other posts. I don't want to be the negative poster!!!!!! (Please know these are my opinions - you don't have to agree).
I just wanted to help you see that a Higher Authority has this covered. TRUST and BELIEVE
Blessings to you all.
Keep calm and go forward!
