This year has been challenging. Melbourne is finally easing from restrictions to what is known as the new ‘COVID norm.’ We are in a phase of recovery, both as a nation and as individuals.
Recovery is a process, not an immediate fix. We can learn to take one step at a time to recover from pain, hurts, trauma, and other kinds of sufferings. Recovery is defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary as “the act or process of becoming healthy after an illness or injury: the act or process of recovering. : the act or process of returning to a normal state after a period of difficulty. : the return of something that has been lost, stolen, etc.” We are in the process of returning to a COVID normal state.
There are a few practical ways or habits we can adapt to our lifestyle as we learn to return to the ‘new’ normal. For example: setting up a ‘stay safe’ box at the front door. Place the essentials items such as masks, disinfectant spray and wipes, and hand sanitizers. I also add sunscreen (we are in summer) to the box, which makes it convenient for my family to grab and go or to disinfect when they reach home. Another example is to be conscious of eating more nutrient-rich foods to increase our immunity, such as increasing our intake of vitamin C and antioxidant-rich foods or supplements in our daily life. We can find various ways to improve our lives as we learn to return to a ‘new’ normal state. What are some ways you can implement in your home or with your family as you lead them to a road of recovery?
TODAYS Ministry is a charity organisation. We believe in sowing, and we have been and still are sowing into the lives of thousands. Partner with us and your donation, large or small, will help reach many more who are struggling in this journey of life.
As a church, we are slowly returning to on-site services. It is a step by step process as we must follow the restriction guidelines. We need to be patient and keep each other safe.
This year, let us celebrate A Meaningful Christmas with family and friends by recovering the lost time we could have spent together. Now, we can make time to meet with family and friends. Strengthen relationships and make new memories together.
