This year 2020, is a year that started with a lot of hope and plan and desire.
Many people saw it as a year of completion and clarity, and elevation to a new level of the current status.
Then mid-way through March, things started to change. The world started taking the information about the issue in China seriously as Italy began to report uncomfortable numbers of people dying from the virus.
The numbers are still grim. There is a reported second wave and a new strain, which is not new but a version from another part of the world that is now new as far as the country reporting it is concerned.
Then a few weeks ago, Pfizer and Moderna released their vaccines, and these came with many concerns from the safety, to motive, to policies and plans the people are not sure whether it is in their interest or not. As of today, they currently are being administered in about 26 countries
Now the final day of the year has come. It allows looking back at the year that has affected us all in different ways in the area of work, work schedule, loss of jobs, family, health, child care, and relationships, church, worship, fellowship, and societal interactions and then the recoveries, disabilities, and death that has come in this period.
May the Lord continue to shower his love on us all and continue to order things by his mercy and grace providentially.
May things be good for us all in the new year!
Happy New Year in advance
