~Good bye, 2020! You have left us with no option but to show you the door and bid you adieu, adios, so long, bon voyage, and sayonara!
Never to meet again, and don't come back!
We are joining the world to welcome in 2021, and we are all praying (even if you don't have a prayer history) that 2021 will show us favor. If you are a Believer, let's pray that God will show 2021 favor; thereby, bestowing blessings upon all the world.
You understand that to which we are referring: that beastly COVID-19. We are showing you the door! Beat it, scram, don't look back!
~We are looking forward! Forward to 2021 with all its new possibilities.
Perhaps we need something like an All Trails app to help us navigate through 2021. We use this app for the trails we hike in Arizona. It's amazing! When we select a trailhead, the app immediately coughs up directions, elevation gain, route type, hike classification, reviews, weather for the day, and more! Wow!

~It would become our "Oh, the Places You'll Go! guide.
(Dr. Seuss) We would not have to second guess suggestions from friends, neighbors, co-workers, doctors, pastors, or counselors. That app would be our "walk by sight, not by faith" guide. We would rarely make a mistake so rarely learn anything. We would rarely use intuition so critical thinking becomes obsolete. We would never take risks so courage dies.
~As long as we could pull up that app; you know, access "Life in the Hand," life would be copacetic.
Unfortunately, a problem with our All Trails app occurs when we reach areas where there is no internet. Stop right there. If we walk by sight, we might select a deviating path - one that takes away from the right way, away from our intended goal. That's when we need intuition and nature's sun! We have done this before. We have had to turn around and retrace our route. We have lost time. It is then that we spot something that we had overlooked: the white arrow or the pile of rocks. We learned from our mistake. It's easy to get lost and can be a costly mistake for some.
~April Fools in 2020! There is no "Life in the Hand" app. Too many times to count, we must "walk by faith, not by sight" because we can't always trust sight. There are times when things are not as they seem. There are diverting paths that seem to be right.
~Personally, we are walking more by faith in 2021 than by sight. It will be by faith that we seek the Way and by faith that we will see God's guiding hand, His white arrows and His pile of rocks. "...choose you this day (this 2021) whom you will serve; ...but as for me and my house (us), we will serve the Lord."
And, we all will have good stories to share on our FB app.
God Bless 2021!
Thank you for reading our blog!
