Poem

L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N.
is a time to:-
L-isten to God's voice and reflect. 
O-bey His word and His teachings.
C-all on Jesus name and be calmed.
K-now what is the purpose of all this.
D-well in His presence. Do not panic.
O-ffer a prayer for everyone's safety.
W-ait and be patient. This too shall passover.
N-uture our personal relationship with Him.
