It's not true but I definitely feel this way. The news is full of doomsday stories. The number of people with the virus has increased from less than one hundred to over a thousand people over the last five days and the general fear is rather incredible.
On Saturday, my husband's student postponed our meet-up for the second time since this started. On Sunday we did not go to church. Instead we held a service in the house.
It was actually fun. My husband led the worship. The last song was Go Tell It on a Mountain. The boys remembered the song from two years ago and got into it with some side by side clapping. I read scripture. Justin preached on Genesis 1. Hansung and I were both trying terribly hard not to laugh while he was doing it. I prayed for us, gave announcements (the kitchen is closed), asked about birthdays and newcomers, and then our little service ended.
In the evening we had a prayer service, which was also a little bit fun. Jordan thanked God for no one catching the virus and about eight other things. Aidan was grinning with his closed eyes when he thanked for God for no Sunday School. Justin thanked God for the opportunity to preach that morning, which was kind of fun.
Other activities during this break have been down at the reservoir when it is not raining. There is a board walk around the reservoir that takes a couple of hours to complete. It would have been great, and just the kind of thing I like to do, if it was not for my right foot. I must have pinched a nerve because it hurt on Sunday afternoon and it hurt today when we went.
The boys had a Foosball tournament the other day. I played and was beaten by Aidan who really does have some good moves. Who knew at the age of ten that he would be so good at making the ball spin? Excellent plays by Justin and Jordan as they played against each other. But it was Daddy who won the tournament.
The other general routine is waking up, meals, playing on devices, a handful of lesson from the brave souls who have decided not to close their doors, and long naps.
For those of you in Korea, I hope you are safe, warm, and sane from all of this. For those of you elsewhere, I hope you are safe, warm, and sane.
