When my younger daughter was growing up, for a period of time, she had hanging from the doorknob to her bedroom a sign which said: KEEP OUT! BUT KEEP ON LOVIN’! My mother, in particular, thought this was quite amusing.
During these times when so many are isolating themselves in an attempt to slow the spread of the novel COVID-19, let us not ourselves forget to “KEEP ON LOVIN’!” And let’s send out the request that others keep on loving us.
I invite you to read my Scripture selection from The Holy Bible in your preferred language(s). Write it out on a card and place it maybe on your refrigerator or microwave so it will be in your line of vision multiple times in the days ahead. Finally, how about seeing if you can memorize it? These uplifting ideas which we tuck in our minds and hearts are the ones which can sustain us when we need it the most.
