My understanding is that … everyone … crossed over the turbulent, rapid-ridden river, into the new wilderness, 2016. So, no no one needs to be left behind, although at there are times when we may feel that way. Once again, that familiar piece of wisdom comes up, “You cannot always trust your feelings.” So, let’s move. And hold on to your hats.
The pain of countless tragedies, in 2015, is is a given … we shall not debate that truth. Nor, shall we camp on those countless tragedies. A big difference, between remembering, redemptively remembering … and giving over our power to the losses. In one sense, we can say,”We have no choice. We must move forward into the hope.” In another sense, it is good to acknowledge reality, especially in order for us to move on with intentionality: “Some may choose not to move forward.” The choice is the reality. Move? Or stay?
Walk with me, and I will walk with you, as we move forward … into the hope and the expectation that there are good things ahead, into the knowledge that we do have what it takes, into the light. Winston said something like this: “This could be our finest hour.” And, do something else with me: hold on to your hat.
