Hope For 2021

This time of year is always a bit off.  All the Christmas build up and anticipation is gone, gifts long since opened, wrapping paper put away, the cookies, cakes, turkey and perhaps a tad too much alcohol already fading in to memory, leaving only, unfortunately, my stretched out belly behind.

And four days from now we will ring in a New Year, which, like living in the shadow of a super star sibling, never quite lives up to expectations.  And how can it not?  Competing with the the birth of Jesus Christ is no small feat!

This waiting period for 2021 to arrive brings good opportunities for prayer and contemplation and something tells me we are going to need plenty of both. An extremely contentious election year tainted by voter fraud will bring a chaotic start to the New Year, which kicks off with a potentially game changing special election in Georgia and the inauguration of a new president who 70+ million people do not feel was duly elected.  And that’s just January.

The Coronavirus is still center stage and so are blue state governors doubling down on lockdowns, whose devastating consequences will only grow exponentially well in to the New Year.  Their unprecedented attacks on civil liberties will seem pale in comparison to when a vaccine mandate comes out.

These are trying times, indeed!  But also a good opportunity to reflect on values and what it is you stand for.  The truth never goes out of fashion, but its defenders shrink and grow periodically.  I believe we are at a time of growth, where many people intuitively know things have gone batty and are not willing to enable the charade any more.

That is my hope anyway for 2021.  Happy New Year!

    Awesome. Very true Tricia. There are many things happening altogether at the same time. No matter how serious things might be, God really have a way out of every situation and all we need is to focus on Him. Thank you very much for the reflection and have a most blessed 2021 in the name of Jesus Christ.

    Happy New Year to you, too and I see more and more rebelling against this charade to control we the people. Hopefully more and more will join us, the non-sheeple.

  4. Thanks Tricia. Some great insight here. “The truth never goes out of fashion, but its defenders shrink and grow periodically. ”

    May this be a year of growth for all of us.

  6. Happy Newlywed Year 🙂
    Let us pray that refeclection will be on the minds of our leaders…
    I think “the people” are drowning in reflection…our leaders, not so much!

    Thank you for this wonderful post. Where things go from here will depend entirely upon individual choices made by a leaderless population, methinks.

    These two quotes fit perfectly the times we are living in:
    “Hope for the best, expect the worst” and “He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad.”

    Happy new year.

    Merry Christmas and happy new year, Tricia. My family observes the twelve days of Christmas, so we aren’t even half done with the season. (But the biggest celebrations have already happened.) J.
