If you haven’t heard it before, hear it now, “We’re all in this together!” As uncertain as life is during this pandemic, being at home gives us a chance to spend more quality time with our loved ones. There’s time to pray, read the Word. We get to play with our kids more and have stay-at-home dates with our spouse. And for many, this is the time for creativity: music, art, dance. Some of these artists have made videos about the pandemic itself. Not sad videos, but funny videos. These videos are bound to make you smile and stay positive about life.
