SIGAWESOME


I am the bubbliest, most outgoing, extroverted introvert. I stare at the other person's shoes when I talk to them. If I had my own soundtrack, it would be Pomme de'Amour I by Rene Aubry.

Hope and excitement for 2017 · 2:36am Jan 3rd, 2017

Happy New Year all and sundry who may pass by!

2016 certainly felt miserable at times. The horrors in Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan. Brexit. 2016 US election. Countless other little tragedies, some close and personal, others comfortingly distant images on the telly or a website.

It certainly was grim and not a little bit scary, but all in all, I am hopeful and excited to go into 2017.

It is interesting that Jesus says that the defining, recognisable characteristic of a Christian disciple of Jesus is supposed to be their love for one another:

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. "By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." - John 13:34-35 NKJV

With all the anger, and hatred, and turmoil, and division and fear out there, a little love and peace when the opportunity presents itself can certainly go a long way. Even the band Genesis (and Disturbed, and Katzenjammer) got the right idea there.

Here is to opportunities to love and help family.

Here is to opportunities to love and help friends.

Here is to opportunities to love and help neighbours and co-workers.

Here is to opportunities to love and help strangers of opportunity.

Here is to a brighter 2017!

Take care!
