The weather forecasters say that the temperatures are to go up over the weekend. Ordinarily that would be a great excuse for going out for a day at the coast or in the country, maybe a barbecue, or friends and family round for a party outdoors. But these aren’t ordinary times. It isn’t easy keeping children or teenagers amused, especially if it is warm outside, and you don’t have a garden. However the advice is to stick to the Lockdown guidelines, for the sake of everyone but especially those who are vulnerable, and those who work in the health service, social care etc.
Lord, following the guidelines isn’t easy. Though it is harder for some than for others. Help us all adhere to them, for everyone’s sake, and to help those who are struggling to cope. Amen
