When a New Year enters, we always hope that it will be better than the previous year but this year was a very different year.
The world changed drastically because of a Coronavirus leak from China. Our lives changed from thereon. The world just stopped as cities went into a lockdown one by one, hospitals started to fill with sick people and dead bodies.
Business had to shut down, restaurants had to close and events were cancelled. We were like prisoners locked up in our homes. Nothing to do, nowhere to go.
Never did we imagine that we would be so detached from our Family, Relatives, Friends and Neighbours.
Because we could not understand what was happening, we were all seeking more information, Fake News started to flourish. Rumours about the end of the World was here. The damage brought upon by Fake News was so severe that it divided the world even more.
But it was also a year that showed us that no matter how financially rich you are, your money cannot save you if you get sick . I know for a fact that when a billionaire was infected by the Coronavirus, not even his wealth was able save him from death.
2020 is definitely a year all of us want to forget, especially me, because I have an immunocompromised daughter. What definitely kept me going is the Faith that God will help us get through this pandemic, and that our Saviour Jesus Christ will protect us no matter how hard the situation is. I know that this will end soon if we keep our faith.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
While it will be a very different Christmas, it does not stop us from Celebrating the Birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ. Even though we are apart, we are still one in mind and heart. What is very important is for us all to stay safe. Let us not be just a number because if we overwhelm our hospitals, we will just be a number. You don’t need to be just a number so stop gathering in the meantime.
From my Family to yours, Merry Christmas and We wish you safe and well. We all hope that everything will be back to normal in 2021.
