Pandemic Times

by Frederick Toca


The first rule of this pandemic is   ----

Stay inside, do not gather in a crowd, keep your distance…

But what happens to all the dreams … the ones we have not yet lived.

Langston asked this question best  ------ “Are they like raisins in the sun? ”

Is now our time to ferment our Faith and Hope? God’s word said, have

“A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which GOD who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time” (Titus 1: 2)


“We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice for we trust in His Holy Name” (Psalm 33: 20-22)

We are one family …sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, moms, dads, husbands, wives, aunts, uncles…The same core of a million mixtures, made in His image. No one like any other, but the same. Bonded together through genes, through love, through growth, through happiness, through sadness, and through feelings good and bad.

We are GOD’s children, baptized into His love, which is our HOPE and the fulfillment of all our dreams.
