Evidently, I am a quitter! Something I never realized before…but this morning, after weeks and weeks of staying home and staying in and just…staying…I said “I quit!”
For my QB (quarantine buddy), this whole unwanted adventure is a lark. He is a happy camper just sticking around here, going from project to self directed project with occasional interaction with his fellow QB, me. He is happy as a clam, a literal ‘in a shell on the bottom of the ocean’ clam. In fact, he says he has been in training for this his entire life!
I am a people person…family people, friends people, lunch pal people, shopping people, out and about people…all of that. So this morning, I threw in the towel. Thus, the “Picture This” moment. I sat having my breakfast yogurt and declaring I could not do this again today, let alone for many more weeks. I quit!
Then I got myself dressed, ready for the day, made my bed, spent some time quietly contemplating God’s goodness to me…and I unquit. Because I know this is what it takes to protect myself, my family, and others. I will stay home and stay in and just stay…for as long as it takes.
Hebrew 12:1 challenges me with “…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” The verse continues with “looking to Jesus”. So I did. And you can, too. Maybe it’s ok to quit, as long as we remember to unquit, too. See you at the finish line…whenever and wherever that may be!
