A Time to Heal
On this New Year’s Eve like no other, I bring you peace.
Peace to heal your broken heart.
Peace to mend your family’s sadness.
Peace to your child learning at home.
Peace to your parents not able to leave home.
Peace to your brother who is sick.
Peace to your next-door neighbor who is being asked to leave their home.
Peace to your friend who doesn’t know where they will get their next meal.
Peace to your daughter who doesn’t when he can start college.
Peace to the heroes working in the supermarket.
Peace to the bus drivers keeping us moving.
Peace to the teachers who love our children.
Peace to world leaders who are trying to protect their citizens.
Peace to the nurses and doctors who will have to hold the hand of another beautiful soul who is passing from this life tonight.
Healing is coming upon our land. It is coming to your heart. It is coming to your home. It is coming to your family. It is coming to your town. It is coming to your country. It is coming to our world.
Healing is coming.
2021 is coming.
The great healing is upon us.
