Tuesday Tidbits: PEACE, PRAYER, & AN EASTER SERVICE!


“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13

In these uncertain times, I pray peace and hope for each person reading this. I hesitate to jump into the fray of this pandemic again, but I wanted to take this opportunity to pray for all of you.

 

Dear Heavenly Lord Jesus,

Thank You for being with us in these anxious days that we don’t know when they will end. I lift up everyone who is reading this. We are apprehensive about this virus and about the supplies for everyone as well as jobs and finances. Give all of us peace and hope and strength during these uncertain times. I pray for health and well-being for each and everyone. In this season of life being unpredictable and not knowing what tomorrow holds, give us peace. It’s scary with this invisible threat sweeping the globe, seemingly unstoppable. Help us all look to You and lean on You. Calm our anxious hearts.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ Precious Name,

Amen!

EASTER SERVICE!

If your church isn’t one that will be having a virtual service this Easter Sunday, I invite you to join mine, Canyon Hills Community Church. We will be having the service at 10 am PDT on YouTube and loaded on our website after that. Here is the link to our website and the link to the service will be posted there. If the YouTube link doesn’t work for the live Easter service, search on Canyon Hills Community Church and you should be able to find us.

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Deuteronomy 31:6

I was online the other day, as many of us are, and came across many humorous memes and such design to lighten our hearts in this difficult time. I laughed at many of them and felt lighter because of them. We all need a little laughter through stressful events. But at the same time, I lifted up those who can’t find humor in the funny things circling the internet because they are battling this virus or grieving the loss of someone. For each person who has lost their battle with this virus, there are many, many people grieving.

 

Dear Jesus,

I lift up all those who have lost a loved one due to this virus. Comfort them and give them peace. For those who are ill, I pray for Your healing touch. Strengthen their immune systems and bring them back to health. I lift up all the health care workers, that you will keep them safe and healthy. I lift up all those struggling with things not related to this virus but are just as difficult.

In Jesus Name,

Amen!


I am a person who is quite content to stay at home. I’m an introvert, so hunkering down and staying away from others isn’t a hardship for me. I welcome it. But I realize there are others for whom this social distancing is very hard. I would suggest arranging online video chats to help with the loneliness. You could also hunker down with a good book, visit with the characters there, and catch up on some reading.

 

Dear Jesus,

Help us all to find contentment in staying home and away from others, so the tidal wave of this virus can be halted and pushed back.

In Your Name,

Amen!


“Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10



This virus will eventually die out. We can all do our part to make that happen sooner rathr than later.

Stay safe and healthy!

Tuesday Tidbits: HELEN HUNT JACKSON & HER FIGHT FOR NATIVE AMERICANS

Warren's — the firm
[Public domain]

Helen Hunt Jackson was an American poet and writer who advocated for Native Americans.

Born Helen Marie Fiske on October 15, 1830 in Amherst, Massachusettes. Fiske’s mother passed away by the time Helen was fourteen and her father three years later. Her father had put away money for her education. Helen attended Ipswich Female Seminary and the Abbott Institute. One of her classmates was Emily Dickinson, and the two corresponded for the rest of their lives.

In 1852, Helen married a U.S. Army Captain named Edward Bissel Hunt. They had two sons. One died in infancy and the other at age nine. Her husband was killed by one of his own marine inventions in 1863.

Helen’s early works were under the pen name H.H. Her first successful poem, “Coronation”, appeared in The Atlantic in 1869, followed by several others.

At Seven Falls with my sisters.

In the winter of 1873-1874, she went to the resort at Seven Falls, Colorado Springs, Colorado to rest and seeking a cure for tuberculosis. While in Colorado Springs, she met and married William Sharpless Jackson, a wealthy banker and railroad executive.

In 1879, Helen Hunt Jackson heard a lecture by Chief Standing Bear in Boston, and her interests turned toward Native American issues. Standing Bear described the forcible removal of his people from Nebraska to Oklahoma where they suffered from poor supplies, harsh weather, and disease. She spoke out boldly against the atrocious treatment of the Indians, government misconduct, circulating petitions, raising a lot of money, and writing letters to newspapers.

H. H. Jackson [Public domain]
In 1881, Helen Hunt Jackson wrote A Century of Dishonor about the effects of the government’s treatment of the Indians, which condemned state and federal Indian policies. The book called for significant reform in government policy where Indians were concerned. She sent a copy to every member of congress.

Jackson went to Southern California to rest. While there, she learned about how the Mission Indians suffered under the Mexican government and then the U.S. government.

“I am going to write a novel, in which will be set forth some Indian experiences in a way to move people’s hearts. People will read a novel when they will not read serious books.” (Mathes, Indian Reform Letters, 298–9 )

“If I could write a story that would do for the Indian one-hundredth part what Uncle Tom’s Cabin did for the Negro, I would be thankful the rest of my life.” (Mathes, Indian Reform Letters, 258)

In 1884, she wrote the novel described above called Ramona.

Helen Hunt Jackson [Public domain]
The story was based on people Jackson had met and incidents she had encountered. The book was popular with a wide cross-section of the public. It is estimated to have been reprinted over 300 times and has never been out of print.

Helen Hunt Jackson died in San Francisco on August 12, 1885 from stomach cancer.

She wished to be buried above Seven Falls, and her husband arranged for her to be buried there at Inspiration Point overlooking Colorado Springs, Colorado.

When the journey up to her grave became too much for William Sharpless Jackson, he had her remains moved to Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs.

Helen Hunt Jackson’s legacy lives on today in her writings.

Despite gaining the attention of a handsome rancher, her parents are pressuring her to marry a man of their choosing to rescue her sister’s reputation.

Tuesday Tidbits: HOUSEBOUND?


Things To Do When Stuck Inside — 

Besides Working From Home


A lot of people are spending more time at home these days while stores and other places are closed. More and more non-essential stores are being closed for the time being. For me, not much in my life has changed. I already worked at home, being an author. Add to that being an introvert, and I didn’t go a lot of places. I usually planned my outings to run several errands in one trip, so I generally didn’t go out more than two times a week, three if it was a busy week. The more time I spend away from home means I don’t get much writing done. It takes awhile for me to get cabin-fever. For others, they get cabin-fever with just the thought of not being able to go out.

When our regular schedules get disrupted, it’s sometimes hard to figure out what to do.
Here are some things to do to occupy your time.

Read: Catch up on your reading. Pick up a good book and read. If you don’t already have a To-Be-Read pile, you can order ebooks or checkout ebooks from the library. You can go anywhere in a book.


Binge Watch: Your favorite shows on Netflix and other streaming services, have a movie marathon and watch all the Lord of the Rings extended director’s cut versions, watch all the Harry Potter movies, or watch every musical (or other category) you can.

Crafting: I like to quilt, sew, do paper crafts, crochet, knit, repurposed-denim crafts, as well as other crafty things. If you aren’t normally a crafting-type person and want ideas of what kinds of crafts you can do, YouTube has a lot of crafting videos. Type in what you might like to do, and see what comes up. You might say you don’t have crafting supplies. Crafters create many things out of normal household supplies. You can make totes out of old T-shirts. You can make a journal out of junk mail, old calendars, magazines, catalogues, leftover paper at the end of a spiral notebook, and other often thrown away items. These are called junk journals. You can make things out of water and soda bottles. And the number of things you can do with a cardboard box are just about endless.


Games: Board games or video games or, if weather permits, yard games. Has it been awhile since you played Monopoly or Twister or Pinochle?

Get Organized: Organize something in your house, perhaps something you’ve been putting off. Rearrange you kitchen cabinets. Organize a closet. Organize a drawer. Organize your DVDs. Organize the kids’ toys.


Bake Cookies: Or cupcakes, or cinnamon rolls.

Cook: Prepare extra meals you can put in the freezer. It would be nice to have things ready to pop into the oven.

Brighten Someone’s Day: Write a handwritten letter to someone. Think about how someone you know would smile at receiving a letter or card in their mailbox — their snail-mailbox.

Wash Your Car: If weather permits in your area, now would be a great time to clean your car, inside and out.

Go for a walk.


Video Chat: Video chat with family and friends. With people not going out so much these days — even when they do, people keep their distance from others — it would be nice to see a friendly face. I love seeing my critique partners each week via video conferencing.


Plan a Post COVID-19 Outing: This too shall pass. COVID-19 isn’t going to be around forever. What fun things do you want to do when life returns to normal?


What else can you think to do?

Tuesday Tidbits: SERENITY...


…a state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled
This is what I’m striving for in the current, global health crisis with the coronavirus.
Which is a little humorous considering those are things I don’t necessarily feel in my day-to-day life with the daily turmoil going on in my life without the Coronavirus.
You might notice as you read this post, the seemingly unrelated images. But they do have a rhyme and reason--at least to me. See if you can figure it out before the end, where I'll explain my rational for them.
I hesitated on writing anything about this because there is so much out there, but I thought maybe some would like to know what others are doing during this time.


What am I doing?
~I’m trying to be smart and not panic. Which is a little hilarious for a person who has the occasional panic attack over nothing.
~I’m minimizing my contact and exposure to others. Wait a minute, being an introvert I already do that.
~I wash my hands often, which I was already doing.
~I’m getting my information about the COVID-19 from WHO (World Health Organization, https://www.who.int/) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC.gov). Everywhere you click on the internet, there is the coronavirus being talked about. So much information. I think it’s important to be informed, but I’m not going to stop my life to do it. That’s not healthy for me.


~I’m trying to not touch my face, as recommended, because we transfer germs from our hands to our faces and become sick. But this is really, REALLY hard. We are creatures of face-touching.
~I’ve heard that hydrogen peroxide is effective in battling the coronavirus, so I picked up some and a spray bottle so I can spray a few things down after I’ve been out. I have found the following site helpful in what is effective and what’s not effect on this virus, https://www.consumerreports.org/cleaning/common-household-products-that-can-destroy-novel-coronavirus/.


Though I’m going about my regular life, I am pulling back from group functions to minimize my risk of exposure. Though most people survive coronavirus, and I likely would, I hate being sick. I just don’t want to go through the hassle.
There are those who would rather be exposed, get sick, get better, and have an immunity to COVID-19. This I understand.
When my children were young, another mother told how when a neighbor kid had the chicken pox, she threw her kids in the bathtub with them so her children would get chicken pox while they were young. I thought she was crazy! I wasn’t trying to protect my children from ever getting chicken pox and assumed they would get them in time, but I felt purposely exposing them was NOT a good idea for me and my family.
As expected, my children did eventually contract chicken pox, from a very unlikely source. Their dad. My husband got them from a sick child on an airplane who was fussy but had no other symptoms. Let me tell you, you DO NOT want chicken pox as an adult. It can damage major organs and cause blindness, even result in death. So if my children hadn’t gotten it from their dad, I would have been really tempted to find the nearest case and set up a playdate.


The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is being called a pandemic. What makes something go from an epidemic to a pandemic? It’s the scope of where the virus is located. If an outbreak of a disease is localized to an area, town, or state, it would likely be considered an epidemic. When it sweeps across a whole country and around the world, it's a pandemic.
I was at the Dollar Tree the other day, and the shelves were wiped clean of hand sanitizer, anti-bacterial soaps, rubbing alcohol, and aloe vera gel. The last two are used in DIY hand sanitizer, which the one site above does not recommend. I also understand that stores are being bought out of toilet paper. People are concerned that they will be quarantined and not have enough toilet paper. People are stocking up on other items as well. This is all understandable. We want to be prepared. As we should be.


Schools around the country are closing to keep our children safe and reduce the spread of this virus. Churches are cancelling services and activities to help contain the spread. Even our library has made ALL books due in March not due until the 31st of March so people don’t have go to the library. But when I was there last week to pick up my holds, the place was teeming with people. For those who are in the high risk categories, it’s good for them to not feel forced into going to crowded places.
Large group gatherings have the greatest potential to spread this virus to large numbers of people. I appreciate schools and churches canceling things and the library postponing due dates, not out of panic but to see to the safety of individuals.


I believe that each person needs to do what they feel led to do for the safety and well-being of themself and their family so long as it doesn’t harm others.
Dear Heavenly Lord Jesus, I lift up the people reading this and everyone around the world during this time of confusion and uncertainty. It’s easy to get caught up in the fray of what is going on around the world. Give each person peace, Your peace that passes understanding. In Your Name, Amen
The images explained: I chose calming, happy pictures that make me smile to help myself, and hopefully a few of you, to remain serene in this storm of uncertainty.
