Loose Ends * 4 Somethings / Homebody Edition

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.  God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
- Matthew 6:34 {The Message}

You're here, friends, and I'm so happy!

What can I say.  Hasn't this been a month.  Or two.

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who's lost track of how many weeks we've been laying low, altering our routines, missing life as we knew it, grieving losses big and small, adjusting to the solitude our families have had no choice but to embrace.

One day at a time.

That's become my new mantra.  I'm not looking too far ahead.  Not to those special family events that I now hold quite loosely.  Appreciating every grace and joy given for the day.  Recalling how God has been so very faithful in the past.  Tending to my soul, body, and mind the best I can.  Grateful for the supportive camaraderie of the blogging community.  Thrilled that my husband now does all the grocery shopping.  Learning Zoom.  Connecting with those I care for online, on the phone, sending cards and notes when nothing less would do.

So here goes with 4 Somethings packed with tons of good stuff for you to sift through while you're biding your time inside your four walls.  I'm guessing you might find something that'll hit home for you.

Noted Christian psychologist and author Henry Cloud just kicked off a live call-in radio show.  I'm a long time fan and delighted at his latest brainstorm, launched the day after it came to his mind, and unfolding weekdays from his dining room table.  The Dr. Cloud Show airs at 4 p.m. EST / 1 p.m. PST.

My friend Nancy sent me this C.S. Lewis quote this week.  No truer words have been spoken -
'We do not know the play.  We do not even know whether we are in Act I or Act V.  We do not know who are the major and who are the minor characters.  The Author knows.'
- The World's Last Night and Other Essays
