A Covid-19 Lament and Prayer


I miss the life we had
before everything went mad
those ordinary days
lived in mundane ways

Familiar routines
smiling faces
handshakes and hugs
in welcoming places

How do you grieve
the loss of everything?
It was winter when it all began
springtime, now summer covers the land

With no end in sight
I pray with all my might:
“Lord, teach us what we need to see
and deliver us soon from covid-19!”

      Hi, Beth! I was thinking about you earlier today, wondering how you and your family are doing. ❤❤

    Amen! I feel like we’ve transferred into a parallel dimension. 😲

      Oh my goodness, Angel, I just found your comment in my spam folder. Sorry about that. Thank you for your ‘Amen’. ❤❤❤

    Love it, and agree with you 100%. Let’s pray this thing out of existence and prove all the negative prognostications wrong. There’s one major problem with them–they do not consider the Lord in the equation. We do have the upper hand when we walk in obedience to Him. God bless.

    Yes, wouldn’t we love to have what we once considered mundane! Just the ordinary pleasant lives we had learned to take for granted with hardly a “thank you.” We are learning.

      Now more than ever, I realize how much I took for granted. I’m trying to be mindful now of how blessed we are, even in the midst of these unsettling days!

    Reblogged this on oldblessedwordpresscom and commented:
    This, from one of my fellow bloggers, reminds me of how much we can miss our routines from the pre-coronavirus times. No matter how exciting or uneventful our lives might have been, the virus has disrupted it. The future seems even more unknown.

    AMAZING! Simply Amazing! The good news is that there will be no Covid-19 in Heaven! And no “social distancing” either!!!

      Yes!! I am not ready to leave this world yet, because I still have some unfinished business to attend to. But I am really looking forward to my ultimate destination. The older I get, the more I can’t wait!

    I am praying this prayer with you, Linda. I missed the life we had before. We are now living a life of uncertainty and only by the grace of God that we are alive. May God deliver us from COVID-19 and all the other plots of the enemy. Thank you for sharing.
