Joy in the journey

My husband and I tested positive for COVID this week. It has been a hard reality to come to terms with, especially because we have two small children, but it is the reality we are living in now.

Is it difficult? Yes. Is it physically and mentally draining? Yes. And yet, somehow, there is joy in the journey.

God never allows anything in a believers life that does not work together for good. Even as some moments have led us to question if tomorrow will come, we have continued to see God’s very present hand in our lives. Our friends and family have rallied around us, supporting us physically, mentally and emotionally. It has been a time of strengthening and deepening bonds. A time that reminds us of what really matters – family, friendship, love. These are the things that are bringing us joy during this journey.

And so we continue on this journey. Every day takes us a step closer to beating the virus. Every day we are reminded of how precious life and the people around us are. Every day we will continue thanking God for the joy he is bringing during this journey.
