Another blogger, more skilled with words than I, has written:
And so 2017 nears. A year to embrace with confidence. It may be a year when courage and patience will be much valued travelling companions. Calm or turbulent we are going where we’ve not been before, so let’s be ready for the adventure. St. Augustine’s words come to mind : ‘ Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage. Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are ‘. I guess that’s a way of saying have confidence in the future and don’t let politicians lies and half truths go unchallenged.
I would try to write more, but can’t think of anything to add, save
In 2017, may you be challenged and angry at the way things are, may you be courageous to see how you can make a difference, and always be hopeful for a better furture ahead.
May God hold us all in the palm of his hand, and lead us in the ways of peace, kindness and love.
