    So, truth be told yes it is worse than the flu and it lasts longer. We had it in our house back in February and while the kids did ok, our oldest had breathing problems and tiredness for a month. I couldn't breathe well myself without the use of a rescue inhaler for a month and a half. It's pretty nasty, so I do understand the social mandates.

    Today is PENTECOST SUNDAY. As many churches (including my denomination) told our governor, we are going to come together whether he allowed it or not. We will follow the procedures he then outlined, but we will come together!

    Yay. You will have to endure the covid case trackers who will test a 1000 new people using inaccurate diagnostics. They will say that the disease spread despite doing things more safely than costco.

    My own church did not open as we have a timetable of our own that I had forgot about. But I'm for the others doing so. God has commanded us to gather and it's time we step it up. As it is, I don't think Newsom is going to do anything about us despite the Supreme Court ruling in his favor.

    I am convinced, in light of all that's going on, that the powers of darkness are seeking to distract us from our task of standing up nationwide.
