30 June 2021
Relieved and weary after successfully battling the second wave of the Delta variant in May 2021 as new infections dropped to single digits in our country, I thought that we can finally take a breather and held out hopes to travel again towards the last quarter of the year.
Afterall, this year is the Year of Joy, with so many reassuring “R” letters like Resilience, Rebound, Resurrection, Re-birth given when the year began.
Furthermore, on 12 Feb this year, he had shown me the palindrome (https://www.communityofbrokenspirit.org/blog/the-pandemic-over-by-1-feb-2022) and I thought that if the pandemic is going to be over in Feb 2022, new infections should start to taper down from summer to February next year.
However, this morning, I was asked by the Holy Spirit to track the pandemic from the beginning. I did a quick and rough chart in my journal above.
Global numbers had peaked in April this year.
He reminded me of the palindrome, which means things will reverse like in a mirror image.
With my red pen, I plotted the future patterned after its mirror image from Nov 2019 to April 2021 and realised that things are not quite over yet… looks like another spike is coming this winter.
LOOK LIKE ANOTHER SPIKE IS COMING THIS WINTER
As I continued to plot the chart with my red pen, ending in Feb 2022, I suddenly saw another palindrome!
Twenty second of February, Year 2022.
Is this when the Covid19 pandemic is really over?
TWENTY SECOND OF FEBRUARY, YEAR 2022
IS THIS WHEN THE COVID19 PANADEMIC IS REALLY OVER
But for now, I fear another wave of death and danger – things will get worse (although not as high as the last peak in April) before it gets better, especially for Asia and countries facing a cold winter in the North.
True enough, Singapore entered into a third wave of the pandemic with large new clusters, starting with karaoke lounges served by foreign hostesses operating illegally and from the fishery port, which spread to the wet markets and the community wide and large.
Countries in Asia start recording staggering increases in the number of community cases and deaths. My Indonesia helper was in great distress as she received news of deaths of family members.
We went into battle mode once again.
No rest just yet.
Eyes stay focused.
Watching and praying as news of people young and old losing their mind increased…
I thank God for the blessed assurance as we remain in Him, becoming the pillar of calm and strength as we handle one crisis after another.
