Birthday’s Eve

Hey everyone… I hope and pray that we are all safe and sound, locked indoors where ever you are. It is indeed a trying time for all of us right now and we need to stay home, stay positive and stay calm. I have been struggling to find words to write, under these circumstances. Many times I logged in and just stared at the screen. I ended up surfing on news about the coronavirus all over the world then I log out depressed and gloomy. Today, I gathered up the courage to write just a few words to tell you that tomorrow, the third of April is my birthday… how does one celebrate though? Anyway, my prayers are with you all at this tough time. If you are a Christian, the Bible says, ‘Be still and know that I am Lord.’ May God be with us all.

This is just a season, this too shall pass. We will emerge stronger and tougher. We are a resilient people. Keep well.
