Hey friends, how are you today? 2022 is here and I’m not mad at it. Actually, I am quite happy the Lord has allowed me to see this year. I have made quite a few plans, tentatively of course, for this year. Tentative plans, friends, tentative; because we must allow the Lord to make the necessary changes. We are simple people, our Lord sees what we cannot, He knows what we do not, and He loves us far more than we can ever love ourselves.
I was not quite ready for 2021, I must admit. First, I did not expect COVID’19 to outlast the year. I was convinced that by July 2021, it would have been a thing of the past. Well, we both know that’s not our reality. Along with this, the year also brought home some challenges that demanded I trust the Lord. Although 2021 was not always smooth sailing, it was certainly a great year. My God remained faithful to me throughout the year, even on those days, when I failed to be faithful. He blessed me far more than I ever deserved, and His mercy and grace was unending. Today my family and I are counted among the living, although there are some health concerns, we are a healthy bunch. We have a roof over heads, clothes on our backs and food in our cupboard. Truly the Lord has been good to us.
Here is a brief visit to 2021 through my lens:
2021 also brought a proud moment for me. I got my driver’s license! I know, I know.. your sixteen year old has her license. BUT… please remember in my first life, I drove on the opposite side of the road and in the opposite side of the car. I didn’t want to harm anyone, so my precious hubby drove us everywhere. But then it certainly became time when our girls took over the task. Uh uh.. I taught these girls to college; not gonna happen. 2022 here I come; ready or not and I’m driving!
Share one thing you are thankful for in 2021.
