“Trust in God, but tie your camel.”
Islamic Hadith: Saying from/or by the Prophet Muhammad
“Prayer indeed is good, but while calling on the gods a man should himself lend a hand.”
I'm 73 years old. I trust in God. When I go out of the house for anything, I wear a mask because--while I trust in God--I have to take responsibility for taking the proper precautions and for obeying the laws. What I think of the laws about wearing masks has nothing to do with me wearing them. Wearing a mask doesn't threaten my personal freedom. Indeed, wearing a mask has more to do with my free will than it does my personal freedom.
For me wearing a mask is similar to rolling up the windows and locking the car door when you use a public parking garage or lot. A person can trust in God and still lock their car doors, wearing a mask works the same way. I know that other people don't feel this way. I know that many consider a mask an attack on their perso9nal freedom. I also know there are those who consider wearing a mask shows lack of trust in God.
I don't think wearing a mask shows lack of trust in God. As for the laws requiring a mask in public, I don't feel they are an attack on my personal freedom. Indeed, I feel that if I don't wear a mask in public, that I'm being selfish and that I'm working towards disunity rather than unity. I know that some things I do, don't work toward the unity of humanity. I'm working on that issue one-day-at-a-time, one action at a time. One of the ways I'm working on it, is to wear a mask whenever I go out in public.
What do you think about wearing the mask and trusting in God? Do you have any suggestions for upcoming issues the the spiritual newsletter?

Excerpt: Believe work, quit not till your high hopes fulfil
Energetically work confidently, feel the chill
Look, sky is the limit, work to reach your goal
In odds, work on, at the end, tell the success tale

Verify work course, track the move on to the reel
Enthusiastically proceed and get a good feel
