In the year 2021, we have lost, won, failed, cried, laughed, loved, but we have not folded. This is all a part of life's journey.  God is not finished with us yet and He will bring us to the other side of this pandemic better, stronger, more faithful and VICTORIOUS! God has not ignored any of our prayers.  The waiting period isn't fun, but it is necessary.  Learn to be patient with God's timing, because it is perfect and comes with no sorrow.  
God wants us to trust Him. He has stayed with us in every storm in our life.  He has given us all that we need.  He has, and always will protect us, our family, loved ones and those connected to us. Our life is made up of moments.  Be present and open to the moment that is unfolding before us. Don't miss them by being lost in the past of anticipating the future.  Be present in 2022. Trust God and enjoy this moment.
