Feeling Discouraged? Take Heart

Chef Selwyn RichardsAnother lockdown; Joe Biden will become US President, on Wednesday; and Kamala Harris will be Vice-president — the first woman to hold the position. History, on so many fronts.

There is very encouraging news regarding the COVID-19 vaccines, yet the reality is: how many of our businesses will survive? How many more of our Brothers and Sisters will die, before this pandemic is over?

We are going through a period of resetting; realizing some of the things we thought were important and we couldn’t live without, is of no consequence to us in these times of uncertainty.

If you’re feeling nervous, anxious and discouraged, take heart, take control of the things that you can, trust in your God like your entire existence depends on it — because it does!

I hate to be preachy but our faith will make us whole. Believe in the possibility that the cycle of life continues.

What more can I say? My one wish for you, this year, is just to be healthy, safe and have all of our loved ones around, covered under God’s grace and mercy.
