Hi all my American angels ...  Just popping in to 'see what condition your condition is in.'  I am not making light of your situation because we are family and I keep up with the news to see how things are going in different States.  I pray for all of you each night.  

It boggles my mind that so many States are having more deaths by COVID while other States are slowing down in this area.  

In Vancouver, B.C. (I live out in the burbs) our government took immediate action and at first we were told to stay home and we did with no contact physically with anyone.  Things have improved a great deal here and smaller shops and other stores as well as malls have opened up.  Our death rate has dropped a great deal thank heavens.  Parks are open and some travel inside Canada.  Restaurants are open and even pubs, but as for myself and my friends and family we are a little leery of going that far.  We do wear masks in certain places and line-up (6 meters apart from the person in front of you) is still regulated in many places.

Please remember that many of those who have COVID and some who pass away either have compromised immune systems or it's the elderly in nursing homes.  Seems even in Canada they were grouping it all together.  Example:  If someone had lung disease they just put it under COVID which isn't always the case.

Canadians began to question what is fear factor and what is real and the media is great for the fear factor.  We asked many people who they knew that had COVID and not one of these people knew anyone.  Please try not to panic and it's OK to go out for a walk with mask on and gloves if that makes you feel better.  We did in Canada and lived to tell about it.

Take care my friends and this to shall pass.  I'm always thinking of all of you even though I haven't posted much recently, but I promise I will post much more.

Love you all

I am also in California...near San Francisco. Honestly, my life has changed completely, but it’s not bad..I just don,t leave the house. My daughter does the grocery shopping for me once a week..she comes over, but we stay physically apart from one another.

i don,t see anyone occasional neighbor..but I am OK. So far, I don,t know anyone who is or has been sick. I have been out 3 times to medical appts..(Sigh..)

My best wishes for everyone. I have a feeling this is going to last into winter. 

I am still stunned.

Hi Sara

I live in CA and fortunately am doing fine! Thank you for asking. I agree we should be in a much better place than we are.

Hi All...I wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing, especially those in CA, TX, AZ and FL.  This is crazy.  After 6 months, we should be in a far better place than we are now.  Please everyone stay safe.

Hi guys..I have been reading, but in a weird place, so not posting..but I saw something on TV last week, about the stars helping create us..and had to jump in.

i have been watching reruns of SLIDERS and Quantum one episode, of SLIDERS..main character QUIN, who .”slides” with 3/friends from one dimension to another, on talking to A boy who is HIM when he was 10 years old..they r gazing at the stars, and QUIN tells the look at all those stars..and explains how WE ALL CAME FROM THEM.  Billions of years ago..we were DUST, but as timemwent on, humans were created, basically/loosely from stardust.

Or, another scenario..we could have TRAVELED from one of those stars..who knows?

Happy 4th everyone.

Sara, I agree with you. 

I think of mother earth as a living entity connected to our living universe, created by our Eternal Father - God.

There are more stars in each galaxy than the grains of sand on any beach on this planet.

I believe that everyone and everything is connected.

So, yes God has our attention, just not sure if everyone gets it yet.

Comment by Sara Murphy on July 4, 2020 at 1:12pm's funny you say that about Mother Earth.  Back when this lockdown started in mid-March, I had said to some people that it was God's way of sending us all to our rooms to think about what we've done.  I'm ready for my "grounding" to be over

Hello everyone.

Happy 4th of July. Hope you are all well. Please stay safe!

Comment by Steve G. on July 4, 2020 at 7:41am

Happy 4th. stay safe.  

I must say that life has changed everyone one and as someone I know on FB said "it's as if mother earth has sent us all to our rooms".  

Everyday life as we knew it will be different on the other side of this pandemic,  My prayers are simple, may we all be better and treat everyone, everywhere the same way we want to be treated.

Sending hugs to one and all,
