The Watch That Keeps Time

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Hope

As I prepare to enter

into the new year

I ponder the good times 

before this year that

seem of a long time ago

finding them hard to remember…

~

As 2020 is laid to rest

with its devastation of

too many lost lives and

the Wisdom gained 

from painful lessons

due to lack of uninformed

choices driven by fear…

~

I now meditate on 

the new times with

faith they will become a

reality of cherished memories…

~

Alas, patience must persevere

while suffering through the surge

before the new times arrive so

I will let hope be the watch

that keeps time 

making it worth the wait!

Silently in a momentary hiatus

from this past year’s journey

I reflect on blessings received

and give offerings of gratitude

with hopeful expectations

of the good that will come

in the Grace filled New Year!
