Me & My Muse – Day 2442: Safe Sunday

In light of all of the current events happening today,  safety is the number one priority in both this country and nation.

Because of Governor Whitmer’s ban on gatherings of more than 250 people, church has been cancelled this week.  Now while the worship center will be closed to the public, the church will be streaming a live service at 10:45.  This will be complete with worship music and a sermon from Pastor Jeremy.

For today, I will only be going to the small church, practicing both safety and caution with every person present.  After both the small church and the live broadcast, I will head directly back home.

I may be going over to my friend’s later to celebrate his 35th birthday.  That is pretty much the gist for today.

To everybody who is dealing with COVID-19 (AKA the coronavirus), I advise that everyone follow these guidelines to lessen the spread of this terrible virus:

  1. Use hand sanitizer if you have it and keep your hands clean.  Even if you don’t have hand sanitizer, wash your hands with soap and hot water for 25-30 seconds.  Sing “Happy Birthday to You” twice and your hands should be thoroughly clean.
  2. Practice social distancing from other people.  If there is a place that you have to go, only go there if it’s absolutely necessary.  If you have to go to work, go to work.  If you really need food, go and get food.  But limit your trips.  All of this will help in keeping the outbreak from getting out of control.  Know that even if you might be young and healthy, the coronavirus will pose more harm to those who are older and unhealthy.  Keep yourself safe so that they don’t contract it.
  3. If you are in a situation where you have to be around other people, keep yourself very clean.  DO NOT SHAKE HANDS WITH ANYBODY. Wave at them or bow, but do not make any direct contact with them.  Also, if you can, keep yourself at least 3-6 feet away from them, as this is considered the safe distance for keeping yourself safe from contracting the Coronavirus.  Do not touch your face and if you sneeze or cough, sneeze or cough into your arm.
  4. You may feel well for a couple of weeks before you even start showing symptoms.  If you feel like you have any symptoms, GET YOURSELF TESTED IMMEDIATELY.  There will be testing facilities set up at pharmacies, hospitals, and other facilities so stay tuned as to where these will be located.  If you are tested positive, STAY IN QUARTANTINE. DO NOT LEAVE THE QUARTANTINED AREA UNTIL YOU ARE INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.

In following these guidelines, I am hoping that we can all we safe and careful during this global pandemic.  Make sure that you have plenty of food and stay calm.  It is very easy for many to be fearful during a time like this, but I advise that none should worry about this matter.  Practice safety and caution during this time, but please do not worry.  This is a hard season for all of us, but if we remain calm, it will help to calm others who are afraid.  There has been an outbreak in the past, and we made it through that one.  There will be a cure, but it will take a while to come up with it.  All of this information is in development so stay tuned for all the latest developments.  Stay safe, stay sane, and stay healthy.  All of these things will be crucial in making it through this trying season of disease.  Trials make us stronger so let’s all be safe and cautiously ride through the dark waters of COVID-19.


Muse:  Yes.  Everyone.  Be safe!

Any weather today?

Muse:  Kyle, this is a serious matter so there will be no story arc today.  My Weather Muse outfit is put away for the time being.  For now, I will be praying for everyone.  Especially those who are older and more vulnerable to this disease…

I’ll let you do that.  I will join you as well.  I totally agree that now is not the time for story arcs.  I will now get ready and practice caution.

Muse:  Get ready.  I’ll be praying.  See you in a bit!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

I will now finish getting ready.  Everyone.  Relax.  This is a trying time, but we will all get through it together.

Today’s high is going to be 34 degrees and the silver lining is being safe at home.

To those of you who are remaining safe with your family, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Lord God, I pray for all of those in quarantine.  I pray for all of those who are affected.  Save this world and heal it.  Have mercy on us, Lord…
