The Green Family share with us about the blessing of being in a loving community and how we can all care for each other in this time of uncertainty.

What does your week look like?

Our weeks are fairly busy with Jonny working and our daughter at nursery and preschool. I’m fortunate enough to still be on maternity looking after our son. Clearly the normal extracurricular activities are still on hold, so we’re trying to enjoy some downtime and make the most of spending quality family time together while we’re free from other distractions.

What are you thankful for? 

We continue to feel extremely grateful for our family’s health and wellbeing. Against this backdrop of uncertainty, knowing people whose businesses are struggling, friends and family who are facing job insecurity and stories of children going hungry, we are so thankful to have a roof over our heads and all our home comforts. We realise many others aren’t as fortunate.

What is God teaching you these days?

This pandemic has been a real test for everyone’s mental health and we’re increasingly aware that the restrictions can make people, particularly those living alone, feel extremely isolated. We continue to take comfort from the kindness of those around us, particularly the church community which has been so welcoming, and hope we can provide similar support and friendship to others as well. As Proverbs 27:17 says: “Iron sharpens iron, and one man [or woman!] sharpens another.”
