My Oasis Saturday

Saturdays have been a bit boring for me since the whole COVID-19 stay home thing started. The past few Saturdays the bright spot has been video chatting with fellow bloggers.

Yesterday was the best Saturday for me since early March. It was like an oasis experience.

It started with blogger chat. It was so encouraging to hear more about Vanessa’s life story. She is an amazing sister in Jesus. She adopted three children after having had two children. She adopted the three as a single mom. She is a teacher. If you have not checked out her blog, do yourself a favor and check it out. Her blog is

After the blogger chat, I actually went to a few local stores. I went to a locally owned Organic/Natural Foods store. They are open from 11 to 12 only for people in at risk groups. They had sanitizer wipes to wipe off the cart handles and medical gloves we could put on. I actually talked briefly with some real live people. I even had the opportunity to tell the cashier a joke πŸ™‚ Yes, I wore a mask.

In the late afternoon my U.S. Citizenship class met online. It was a blessing to see them online.

It was an oasis in the dessert of six weeks of self isolating. I am thankful Jesus blessed me with such a day. Hopefully we will be able to return to somewhat normal lives in May or June.

How have you been doing?

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Yay! I am so very happy to read that you had a blessed Saturday………..and you went to a health food store………I love shopping locally but no health food stores are near my home……….thank you for sharing and I hope today treats you just as well!!!!

  2. I’m glad you were able to get out of the house. It’s important for our mental health that we do get out at least once a day even if it’s just to sit on the porch or taking a walk.

    I’m good, thanks for asking. God is faithful! It doesn’t mean everything is what I would like them to be, but God has been good to me.

  3. Human interaction is so important. I’m not allowed to go anywhere. I did pop into a store last Friday. The first time since lockdown started. It really helped. Our hard lockdown is meant it end of Thursday night but we will still be very restricted. Glad you got to interact! I felt so recharged after chatting with my family on my birthday yesterday. Maybe I should get in on this! An international Zoom party! πŸ’ƒ
