The Last of 2021

Two Thousand Twenty-One. 
How did it go so quickly I might ask. Another might say I thought it would never be over. 

Yes, we are just hours away from the chiming in of 2022. Would you be offended if I wonder why we make such a big deal of it?
Today is December 31, 2021. 
At midnight it will be January 1, 2022. 
Is it really more than that? 

I remember the turning from December 31, 1999, to January 1, 2000 — we wondered if our banking, utilities, etc. would cease to compute and we would be in mass chaos at the stroke of midnight for the foreseeable future. 
But the dawn came, the sun soon beamed and the birds sang. 
I expect it will be just so come the morning.

Is the turning of a year any more than that – just another day? 
Is it really more than that? 
If we make it so — it is. 

If we embrace the New Day of the New Year as a New Beginning, renewal is more than possible, it’s likely.
I am reminded of Scripture. That
all things are possible with GOD; that His mercies are new every morning. That applies to in the morning for all who awaken to the morning’s light. 
We get to choose GOD or not. 

Let us choose wisely.
The unfolding of our year, our families and our emotional well-being in large portion depends on our choices. 

I borrowed this picture from a Friend’s Facebook Page and offer it here with minor edits.
It’s not profound but I liked the play-on-of-words as we
take off into this new year. 🙂
