I am not one to express an opinion outside of the biblical arena, but have been asked what I think of all that is happening in regards to COVID-19 and wearing facemasks. If I didn’t work at a hospital and see all I’ve seen especially in the CCU, I would be skeptical about all of it as many are…but I can’t unsee what I’ve seen or give a father back to an 8 and 10 year old or a 20 week stillborn son back to a mom with COVID.
I go out more than recommended (confession) but always wear a mask even though I don’t like to. I do it for the safety of others more than myself as I am often by the bedside of those who have COVID19. I don’t wear it out of fear but because of wisdom and respect for others. I wear it because it brings peace to the person standing 6 feet behind me at the store or the grocery clerk 2 feet away behind their plexiglas shield. I wear a mask because it gives me the opportunity to talk to people face-to-face about the giver of peace in the chaos of COVID and the fear it has brought.
My facemask has allowed me to wait longer in line and talk to people I would have rushed past in the business of my day. For those who have felt shy talking to others…your facemask gives you the anonymity to be bold😁Facemask Evangelism…give it a try😷
