days 5 – 7 of our lenten scripture – as the plague is lingering on.

Hey, everyone.

I am still with the Covid symptoms – but my o2 sats are holding steady and I am so incredibly thankful for that.

beautiful get well flowers from my better half. he is the very best. ❤

Yesterday, being that I am at the end of my Paxlovid, I decided to retest for Covid, thinking that, even though I feel awful, quite often a person will have a negative test at the end of antiviral therapy (at least in the window before a possible rebound of symptoms).

Um, no.


There are some added effects for me both with RA and having been on long-term steroids in thinking of how long this may last.

(That’s not really surprising – I just had to stop being a weenie and read the specifics I had been avoiding.)

Some new symptoms have appeared as well with my RA – likely due to the inflammation that Covid brings – and today my PCP has been adjusting meds and adding an antibiotic for secondary infection.

All that said, my sweet family is taking amazing care of me and I am going to start these new meds and spend today snoodled up with our fur babies. As always, onward. . .

Having more or less slept through the First Sunday of Lent and running behind and sleeping lots since too, today we have three readings to catch up.

First, our Day 5 Scripture is actually the second part of Colossians 1:15:

He is the firstborn over all creation. – Colossians 1:15B (NIV)

While the text we are following uses the NIV, I prefer the NLT translation for this verse in its entirety:

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation. – Colossians 1:15 (NLT)

I think this paints such a lovely picture. ❤

Our Day 6 Scripture is Isaiah 55:8.

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways. – Isaiah 55:8a (NIV)

This is something to remember, especially when God’s plans don’t match our own.

Finally, our today, Day 7 Scripture, is Proverbs 14:12.

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. – Proverbs 14:12 (NKJV)

To my understanding, this means I don’t make the rules – or at least not very well. God always has His best for me – even when it doesn’t feel like it. ❤

I’ll be back for our Day 8 Lenten Scripture (hopefully on time) tomorrow.

Be well, everybody. Take care of yourselves and each other.

Grace and Blessings.
