The holidays usually spark the phrase “Tis the Season”. This year, however, Covid has me repeating a slightly different phrase…“Tis A Season”.
When I am tempted to focus on the losses, or throw in the towel on caution, I actually find this phrase very helpful to say… “This is only a season”.
Everyone has been trying to find their own way of coping with this pandemic. The battle is real!
I myself vacillate between thankfulness, fatigue, and grief…sometimes all within the same moment! Top it off with a heaping spoonful of guilt whenever I allow a sense of loss or frustration to overtake gratitude... this could be a recipe for what Anne Shirley refers to in Anne of Green Gables as “the depths of despair”! However, I find it helps me stay the course to repeat the phrase...
“This is only a season, it’s not forever”.
Words Of Encouragement
At the very beginning of the Covid lockdown last spring, I received an email from a friend with the following quote. Throughout the months, I have found these thoughts encouraging. Maybe they will encourage you too…
It doesn’t need to be said that what we have experienced is nothing like the brutality of "Hanoi Hilton", but Covid can sometimes make us feel like prisoners. Let’s remember…we WILL make it out of this, it just may not be by Christmas!
