New Tomorrows…

It’s New Year’s Eve and time to say goodbye to 2020. What a year!

So many challenges clouded our horizons. Global pandemics, loss, conflicts that continued unabated, hurricanes, fires, economic hardships, more loss…and failures.

It was hard at times to find our way amidst a sea of difficulties.

But there was also faith, hope, love, grace and courage amidst it all. People serving selflessly on frontlines from medical facilities to grocery stores helping others. As the sun goes down on 2020, let’s not forget to be grateful.

Tomorrow is a new day and a New Year!

“Consult not your fears, but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern not yourself with what you tried and failed in, but what it is still possible to do. Now is the time to put aside past and present setbacks and failures and look with confidence to the new day called tomorrow.” Saint John XXIII

New Year’s blessings to all!

grace, peace & New Tomorrows

Virginia : )

p.s. Looking back over 2020, so grateful for the community of bloggers here on WP + family and friends who read around the globe. A big thank you for the encouragement during Virginia’s Advent post-a-day gig. Putting posts up this year was the hardest yet, so the comments, emails, and texts meant loads. Now Virginia is back to her sporadic blogging schedule. New Year’s hugs to all!

    Thank you so very much Virginia. Your writing and photographs are a recent discovery for me and a bright and hopeful message these days. I hope you continue often to post and not too too sporadically!

      Thanks for your encouragement, Mary – it means loads! I usually try for 2 posts a week (3 if I’m feeling really prolific) but I’ve also done several post-a-day Lent gigs (40 days = tad longer than Advent…) We’ll see! New Year blessings to you & yours! 💐🎊💐

    Happy New Year, Virginia! Your lovely photos and perfect quotes have added much delight to what has been a difficult year. I’m sure you’re happy to be free from the post-a-day schedule — that’s almost too daunting a challenge, ha!

      Debbie, your comments & encouragement have been a HUGE boost to keep on going during this difficult year. Thank you ever SO MUCH! This year’s Advent gig found me scrambling for inspiration the night before whereas last year I scheduled them way ahead… sigh. Blogging hugs! 🎊🤗🎊
