HOPE is Alive in 2020
‘Twas the month of December and all through the land
COVID is spiking, canceling events we’ve had planned
From parties & traditions, weddings, church services and more
Occasions we enjoy right down to our core
The health care workers, teachers, delivery peeps and store clerks
Are feeling exhausted and could use some perks
It’s understandable that feelings of frustration and sadness are near
We want to spend time with all those we hold dear
My wish for you is to keep HOPE standing strong
We all keep asking, Seriously? Really? How long?
I get discouraged and even angry some days
Then I step back and remember, His ways aren’t our ways
Can you imagine how Mary felt so long ago?
Traveling on a donkey with a baby in tow?
This young girl on a mission with Joseph leading the way
They finally arrive at their destination with nowhere to stay!
No friends or family were there to share that special night
God was watching over and providing His light
As HOPE entered the world in a modest cave
Not many realized it was God’s son that he gave
If ever a time that our world needed HOPE
It’s during this pandemic as we all try to cope
As Christmas day nears, please remember the reason
It’s because JESUS was born, we celebrate this season
If a nativity you see while you’re out and about
Remind yourself HOPE is alive, no doubt
