Wellness Wednesdays- Grateful for the Color Orange?

My city was in the red for severe on the COVID dial for ten weeks in a row. It was a long ten weeks of wondering when things might improve. The vaccine is being given to people but I am not in one of the groups yet. Hopefully next round. I want to have the vaccine, so I can return to a part of my ministry and work that means so much to me- visiting refugees and immigrants in their homes.

Yesterday we moved from red for severe risk to orange for high risk. Suddenly orange is a color I appreciate.

So in honor of moving to orange on the dial, I will eat orange foods today to celebrate. I will eat an orange for breakfast and carrots as part of my lunch. I will buy a bag of oranges on my way to teach my morning class and give each student an orange and tell them why. I also plan to leave oranges in the teacher’s lounge for the teachers.

Sound silly?

Little things like that can help reduce stress. Stress is not a healthy thing to live under for prolonged periods of time. The past ten months have been stressful and where I live especially the past ten weeks.

I am not sure what to do when we eventually move down to yellow on the dial. Lemons come to mind haha.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. I urge you with all my heart to stay away from that vaccine. It is poisonous and deadly, and many people are being hurt and killed by it. It should not even be labeled a vaccine. It is a dangerous untested gene therapy that damages our DNA. I recommend doing a lot of research before making that decision. Praying for you. God bless you!

  2. I love this!!! You know how to have fun and make people smile no matter what is going on. You have a gift. πŸ’•

    Yellow? Ohhhh…. I’m thinking bananas (I love bananas, but I’m allergic to them), yellow squash would be yummy.

  3. Aaah…..colours impacting you too brother Matt…..see that’s why we’re friends…..πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ€©πŸ€£

    And a rhyme from the good old days…
    Yellow yellow
    Dirty fellowπŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
