Waving goodbye to 2020 has not been any different for me than leaving previous years. Except in one respect. I entered and left 2020 with Bob. Although I know the Lord never leaves me nor forsakes me, I am ever thankful for having Bob with me, here and now, on earth.
I've gathered up the many blessings bestowed on me, knocked the dust of the past from my shoes and I bare headlong into my life.
I've packed all the good into my heart. All good things come from above, they are gifts from God. Good weighs nothing, is never a burden and takes up no space, leaving room for more. Good nourishes the mind, expands the soul and causes a glow about the spirit.
A double nod went to the hard moments. I hope in every case they advanced my spiritual growth.
A sweeping tip of the hat was given to the people and events which kept me moving ever forward, never backward.
A wave and a smile has long ago gone to those who hurt me with their hurt, who tried to take me down their dark road. May the Lord bless you and keep you and shine his face upon you.
Tonight, as with each night, I go to sleep with a grateful heart and a thankful prayer. I hope you will also.
My cup runneth over. I wish the same for you.
Until the day I rise no more, I will rise each morning knowing the new day is rich with hope and laden with mercy and gifts. I cannot live any other way.
