Today, I really became aware of how much I snack during a normal day! I experienced the growling stomach and the hunger pangs, mid-morning, today. But, this afternoon, I was missing the snack times! We buy the jugs of Peanut M&M’s at Costco, and it’s great to grab a few of those when I need a distraction or a reward for finishing a project.
A drive across town was a good way to divert my mind, but it was great to have a hearty dinner!
Then, I got an email from a pastor friend in India who is helping to feed the people there with groceries and bags of rice. The situation there is precarious, for many of their people. While I get a good meal in the evening, they are probably thankful for a handful of rice. The coronavirus is not a joke. It has changed the way the world lives, and the situation for those of us in the US is trivial compared with those in Third World countries.
It seems rather trivial to be concerned about missing snacks, when others are starving to death from lack of food, of any kind.
Please pray for those who are less fortunate than you are, whether in your neighborhood, or in other parts of the world.
Thank you for your concern!
