It is a comfort to know that God is sovereign and that all things work together for good for those that love God; as Romans 8:28 assures us.

In the meantime, sometimes it is really hard to know how to handle things and whether or not I am doing the right thing.

I am presently the only one in my family that because of my studies on the subject, refuses to get vaccinated. Canada is getting more and more "vaccine crazy"; and the family is believing the narrative of the health authorities that until everyone is vaccinated, we will not get out of this mess. I can handle the narrative that our government is throwing at us; but now that the family has embraced much of it, it become another matter.

As the Provinces get more and more into lockdown and vaccine crazy; it becomes more and more clear that the family thinks I am crazy. They may not agree with how the government handles these matters, but the way they are seeing it they need to live their lives and I am holding them back.

My wife and I just had to cancel our trip to Alberta to go see our eldest daughter and go on a road trip. It was supposed to happen this weekend.
My wife is allowed to be in my daughter's house, but I am not, because I am unvaccinated. My wife and I are allowed to go to a hotel, but my daughter can not be there with an unvaccinated person. I am not even allowed to go to restaurants.

This Saturday is supposed to be my wife and my 39th wedding anniversary; but now she is thinking about going to see my daughter without me. She just said to me that "you might as well cancel your holidays, no sense you wasting them.
My daughter who is an Alberta nurse in the fight against Covid, told my wife that it is a proven fact that the unvaccinated are 30-40% more likely to get Covid. She also is consulting with a long time nurse friend, who told her I am wrong.

My wife told me all this and I told her that I can not do anything about it. Believe me, I wanted to say a lot more than that, but that would not go well; I am too upset right now.

I have tried to show my family the reasons why I do not want to get vaccinated; but they are convinced that I am wrong.

Right now, other than prayer; I am at a loss to know what to do. This is putting serious strain on the family and I am not certain if I should just give in and get vaccinated and relieve their fear for me. I also feel like an inconvenience to them; ruining their plans.

Sorry, I am not even certain if I should be writing this here.

“You are not to say, ‘It is a conspiracy!’
Regarding everything that this people call a conspiracy,
And you are not to fear what they fear or be in dread of it." Is. 8:11-12 NASB
