Things We Still Can Do

Here are some things to do while being in quarantine.

Make as much structure as possible in our homes.

Hold kids accountable to good behavior and completing school work. Give extra assignments as necessary.

Have children do an oral report on something or someone. Using props such as poster board or dressing up like the main character whenever possible. We did the Great Depression and Anne Frank. It is important to have a sense of normalcy. These things are comforting to kids.

Have fun.

Do chalk drawings.

Go for a walk.

Read a book.

Decorate your window with hearts, be creative, make a pattern.

Have a game night.

Do random acts of exercise, then challenge others to do more than you did.

Journal your thoughts or ideas.

What’s one thing you could do different?

What’s one thing you will never change?

Pull out scrapbooks.

Explain in detail why and how much you love each other.

Count the stars.

Watch the sunset or sunrise together.

Fix each others hair.

Talk about your last vacation.

What place do you want to vacation to next? Get pictures online.

Sing and worship together.

Start in John and read the Bible together.

Tell and listen to jokes.

Give hugs, lots of hugs to the people in your family. Remember we are all hurting and going through things differently.

Play with your pets.

Organize the cupboards, garage or closet; you know they have been needing it.

Turn the music up and dance.

Cook together.

Make frozen popsicles out of juice.

Do the kitchen floor on hands and knees as a family, throw wet rags, you can shower afterwards.

Call your mom, a neighbor, or an elderly person.

Spread cheer randomly.

Have a charades night.

Stop and breathe.

We made it.

Another day has been swallowed up into the night.











God is on our side.

He is smiling on us.

Close your eyes and go to sleep, resting in the security and power of His presence.

Tomorrow is a new day, let’s just rest now and make it through tonight.

God bless everyone. Thanks for reading.

Your sister in Christ,

Donna Marie

Matthew 10 29-33 NIV Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. 32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

Dearest heavenly Father,

Thank You for Your provision and protection. You calm the storms Lord. Whether they are on the outside of us or the ones that are on the inside. Help us to keep our eyes and minds on You and not on the world around us. No matter what happens, You are still on the throne. We praise You and thank You for that security. When everything else is in turmoil, we can have peace, Your peace. Peace that the world doesn’t understand because they haven’t experienced it, without having a relationship with You. Bring them in Lord, bring the wandering ones in through the peace they see in our lives. Help us to stand strong in You, without wavering. You are awesome and amazing. Thank You for peace, joy and strength we have, in the midst of difficulties. We rise up, because of You living in us. We rise up,  to declare Your goodness. May Your kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread. Help us to be content with what we have. We give You the highest praise. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you. If it is more private you can always contact me via email at I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.

Let’s worship today with

  1. I needed this, Donna. I’ve been walking about for most of the day with a face like a sour plum, feeling sorry for myself. I’ve just learned that I have to start ‘shielding’, not go outdoors for at least 12 weeks (because I have pulmonary sarcoidosis). I’m going to miss going out with the dogs. However, there are lots of things on your list that I can be getting on with.
    I love the vintage picture of the children in their little woolly pyjamas.😀 x

    1. I am so sorry for your 12 week news. I know how you enjoyed being out with your dogs. I will be praying and believing for you. Puzzles offer hours and hours of fun as well as quilting or crocheting. Huge hugs to you (((Lesley))) What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see. When I look upon His face, the One who saved me by His grace…..He will see you through. Sending love. ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

      1. Thanks Donna. I’ll just have to be creative … play games with the dogs instead, make an indoor garden on the window-sill and keep up with my writing. There’s loads of things to do! 🙌x

      2. Oh how pretty, do include a picture of the garden on your window sill in an upcoming blog. Sounds lovely. Way to stay optimistic! Maybe you will be on the next America’s Got Talent with your newly trained dogs! LOL. 🙂

  2. You have such excellent advice here for families with children. As a grandmother who dearly loves all of my grandchildren, I think that your post needs to be re-blogged. So, off I go to do just that. Thank you for this blog. Stay safe and well!

    1. Gid bless you Vicklea. I have a foster sister named Vicky Lee. What a neat coincidence that your name is similar. Thank you for the compliment. To God be the glory! Thanks also for reblogging. ♡ your sister in Christ, Donna

      1. My real name is Vivian Lea, but I have always been called Vickie to avoid confusion with my mom for whom I was named. So, I’m Vickie Lea. Nice coincidence about the names.
