Hi!  It’s me, Lily!

But today it’s a thoughtful Lily.

Church was cancelled today.  Apparently a couple of people ended up with the virus that’s going around, and they are seriously ill.  They might die.  It’s true they are older people, and no one else seems to have come down with it lately, but it’s still sad.

I don’t understand church, or God.  I really don’t.  I mean I go to church, and I listen to the message, and sometimes it’s a very nice message.  They say that God loves us, they say that God saves us, they say that he even sent his son to save us.  But then people come down with viruses and get sick or die.  What kind of love is that?  Why do they tell us that God loves us and then people suffer and get sick or get hurt or all that?  I kinda sorta understand the argument that when someone hurts someone else it’s their fault.  But viruses aren’t peoples’ faults.  They just are, and they try to kill us, and God must have created them too, right?

So today, we’re home.  We’re not “quarantined” yet because we didn’t have extended close contact, but we did have to go get a test.  It was negative, thankfully.  But it could have been positive.  I know we’ve all been vaccinated, but I don’t want to lose Dave or Sabby or Beth or even David!  It’s not fair!

Happy thoughts, Lily.  Happy thoughts.  But I don’t have many happy thoughts today.  Maybe Dave taking us for driving practice will help me forget.  Maybe.  I guess I should shower.

Love you all!!! ❤️
