we are gathered here
“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” Prince
2020 was a year of many challenges and more than its share of pain. It wasn’t a wasted year because each DAY on earth is precious and if God Almighty allowed you to get to this point then it’s all worth it. That good people means you’re in the elite of those who are still alive and that’s something to celebrate!
That means you have purpose and a life that is meant to be lived and shared with others. It means that God loves you and wants the best for your life. To be alive in this time means that you have more LOVE to give yourself and others. That there is more work to be done and you are HERE chosen, hand-picked by The Master to help execute it.
“Gathering”, let’s just have a play on words here considering getting together was and still is difficult. But what I have seen is virtual support like no other. Nope, not zooms calls necessarily but via television, social media, websites, etc. This year we supported causes like BLM, we marched in support of humanity across the globe, we rallied for others in despair, we sent money to those in need, we patronized small businesses, we held each other accountable and responsible for doing our part to make things better for tomorrow and those that proceed us. Despite mandatory distancing we connected in a way we haven’t before. And it’s in that way that we should continue caring about others, supporting and lifting up, speaking on behalf of those who can’t be heard.
This is the spirit that we should take into 2021, we are all humans and capable of loving ourselves, our family + friends and others. We have the wherewithal and resources to support one another and boy can back a good and worthy cause.
Ways to Keep the Good Spirit Going
TAKE TIME for self-care, you can’t pour from an empty cup
CHECK-IN, reach out to family + friends more often
LEND A HAND, the less fortunate need us more than ever
SHOP LOCAL, purchase from a small business or people you know selling products
SPREAD THE WORD, like, share or tell someone about a cause, movement or product (mainstream lines + products don’t need help)
BE SAFE, if you’re not feeling well stay home, wear the dang mask, wash your hands you filthy animals
