WHY Do I Wear a Mask?
Why do I wear a mask? and stay socially distanced? Because my faith is UNMASKED and I believe we are to do our part to inspire others, remind others – and because I am alive.

Why do I wear a mask? and change it twice a day at least? Why do I wash my hands? Because I have to be aware of my surroundings and not take the things I have to do and get to do for granted.
Why do I wear a mask? Because I DO honestly want to go out and about, but NOT for flaunting my freedom. For now IS the time for finding our balance between work and worry, routine and risk. And while I wear a mask, I can still show that I CAN STILL SMILE. We can still smile while wearing masks, we can still sing quietly in the grocery story while wearing one, we can still be polite and friendly, we can still believe in the goodness of the Lord while wearing one. We can certainly show our humbleness while wearing one. We can still be His servant while wearing one. We should not judge while wearing one. We should be still.
Why do I wear a mask? Because it caught my overflowed tears just now as I watched (via a Facebook live feed) a dear friend lay BOTH her mother and father to rest in a cemetery – both 80 plus – both taken swiftly – BOTH passing away only a week apart – together in dear love 56 years married… I will re-remember today because I heard the sadness of those there at the service. I will wear a mask and know the “closer” of illness but the beginning of eternity. I will remember their closeness to each other and of each of them to the Lord, and I will wear my mask to mark the completeness of their earthly cycle.
Why do I wear a mask? Because we don’t know when, where, how we will participate in the spread of this virus(SARS2). We don’t and won’t see it coming – especially if we THINK it already came by, skipping us for now – but we just don’t know.
Why do I wear a mask? Because we know we are all to pass away someday. Wearing the mask draws me closer to the Lord knowing others are passing. Yet, we know that that is OK – that we have the Lord leading our way.
Why do I wear a mask? Because I am still a breathing, living, loving organism. Because I praise the Lord – and the Lord alone – because He has filled me with breath and life to make me His. The Lord has made me aware and allowed me to simply walk out the door today and go where I choose… Even better, I best go where He chooses me to go – He allows me to wear the mask today because I am still on this Earth…
Why do I wear a mask? Because if I don’t set a good example, who will? If I don’t prepare for my children, who will? If I don’t show the synergy of my own knowledge of science, spirituality, and sensibility, who will?
Why do I wear a mask? Because I have lots of fun fabrics to sew and so that others will be seen smiling within these masks too – and if I am not colorful and singing and smiling, and crying and listening and learning, and being a person of faith behind my mask, who will?… Many are all these things in their faith and therefore I also can be. I can be me in a mask. I can still be me.
Why do I wear a mask? Because I am still alive…
Why I am alive? Because the Lord said so…
Why did the Lord make me? To show my faith in Him. To be loved by Him and to love Him.
Why do I UNMASK my faith in Him? because He made me me.
I was unmasked to the Lord before I was made – He knows everything about me. And He told me, showed me He loves me. He told me that my job was to tell you that He loves you.
God loves you. Jesus saves you. Holy Spirit moves you.
Why do I wear my mask in faith? Because my FAITH should be written all over my face.
