Facing Conflict and Enduring Long Waits

With today’s increased conflict over Politics and the Covid Pandemic and whether to Vaccinate or not, there is much strife. Each person has to determine how they face the conflict. Head-On, Turn Tail and Run, Talk and try to reason with others, Research and determine what you think, Pray and Wait. There are many factors to consider. Your unique situation and personality also determine how you react.

In the first of my “Seasons- a Trevellian Family Saga”, Helena chooses to meet conflict head on many times. When she helps those less fortunate during the siege of Boston, she bears the price when she is separated from her husband. She calls upon her family upbringing and her mother’s example to help her decide what she should do. She also learns the value of prayer and how to endure the waiting.

I think we all, myself included, need to learn how to pray and endure our times of waiting. In Helena’s case, she relies on reading scripture, prayer and singing to lift her spirits and help her endure famine, separation, death of loved ones, Indian raids, and the long wait for her husband to return.

What do you do to help you endure the long wait to get the Covid Vaccine? Will you get it, if so how, when, what do you do between shots and the waiting to see if you can get the first, then the second shot?

  1. I’m trying to wait patiently for my second vaccination shot, but I get tempted to worry. Gotta keep trusting I’ll get that email to schedule my second shot like they said. I keep reminding myself and God, that’ I’ll need it. So thankful I got the first one. . .
