A Little Behind…

This whole coronavirus shake up is messing with my world.

I’m a creature of habit.

I get up at the same time, go to bed at the same time, do most chores on the same day of the week and pretty much find myself walking in the same worn out cow paths.

But with my husband working from home, my son having to do the shopping and various and sundry interruptions to my otherwise predictable routine, I’m finding it difficult to keep up on my writing.

So for those of you following the Scripture posts, more are coming-I promise.

They take a significant amount of time, energy and research to write and I’m not able to find that every single day like I used to. I don’t want to slop through them, so it may be a day or two before I get another one up.

Until then, I will probably be reposting a few old entries.

Thank you for your patience.


This just made me smile.

  1. Finding the same here, everything is disrupted isn’t it?
    You do a marvellous job of supporting us all Melanie and I agree with the other lady, re- visiting your older posts brings something new from the first reading of them. ❤❤❤

  2. Melanie, I just wanted to say, I’ve received so many blessings from the studies you’ve put out for us. I’ve never done a study quite this way. And I’m finding that I’m going deeper, which is a good tool for me to develop as a Christian. I’m ready to be more pro-active with my walk, you’ve helped to point me that way. Thank you. I’ll gladly read whatever and whenever you are able to go. Hugs and stay safe.


  3. Melanie – You are doing what so many of the rest of us are doing – learning to live this new normal we have been thrust in. As in our grief journeys – this too is a journey in which we find ourselves feeling like life in and around us is spinning out of control. This Corona-virus world is encompassing our thoughts, keeping us from concentrating, fueling our fears, casting doubts on whether or not we will, individually & collectively figure out how to navigate safely through – knowing that this will leave its mark on us the rest of our lives. Thank you for continuing to be a light of hope & encouragement to all of us. May the peace of Christ fill and sustain you.


  4. Melanie, those of us that have followed you appreciate any writings you can do and it’s still good to read old posts I always get something new each time. This virus situation has all of us thrown for a loop so I’m sure all of us understand. Take Care Stay Healthy ♥️
