DONT PANIC!

I said this too myself , just a minute ago… It’s close to 4am, and I am in excruciating physical pain, in desperate need of a shower, and I just made myself TURN OFF the news. The innundation of statistics and unending bloopers and unforgivable blunders by governments to help people is just heartbreaking. And anxiety inducing. In the midst of all the blaming and mistakes, one Stat really just blew my mind. It is shown in a graph on the BBC website, and it really scared me. I can feel my blood pressure rise as I look at and hear all the scary stuff…

. SO, BACK OFF OF THE NEWS!!!! Do you hear me, Susan? TURN IT OFF, SAY YOUR PRAYERS, DRINK YOUR NIGHTLY TINY GLASS OF MILK, PICK UP YOUR PUPPY AND GO TO BED!!!!!

.  So, I am cutting this short…I want to pray, take my meds and dream of bunny rabbits and roses…

“Just remember, Child, I have a plan that will not fail. All my promises come true, and I love you…Believe in me, trust in me, and follow my Son, Jesus Christ’s footsteps…There will be a resurrection , all the people who are dying will be raised up…Listen to me, listen to the Bible, my letter to you…I AM LOVE. I have fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness! Now, get in bed and turn out the light!”

. Thank you, Father. Thank you….
