The days are ugly right now in so many different ways and in so many places, but He's got this and I am thankful for that promise.
My day was spent with good conversations with both of my kiddos about the current protests/riots.
Isaac is handling it well for being a young black man, but he understands the reality of needing to be careful around others because of racial generalizations. I'm proud of him as his faith is growing!
Maegann came home from work today as she wasn't feeling well and they are still having to follow COVID regulations for workers. Just as well as she was totally overwhelmed and uncertain with the current events. She'd been targeted by a couple people verbally because she is white. Horrible statements being made out of fear, but so unkind and so unnecessary. I am thankful she will be getting the next color treatment for returning to her natural hair color as the blonde she's at now is a very noticeable "white girl" look. I believe that something this simple will be helpful in not being singled out.
A couple positives coming out of this for our family is that Isaac has requested we resume our weekly family Bible study (not Sunday worship) and Maegann and Isaac spent the entire evening outside talking and laughing. This is not a common event at our place because of his autism. If it takes the rioting and racism to bring a change in their relationship who am I to complain!
Tomorrow I need to do laundry, finish up another client plan and then I'll decide from there what happens.
