So many folks are pleased to see this year in the rearview. It’s been a strange one, that’s for certain. I haven’t hated it because it held plenty of joy for me personally, including the birth of a precious, second grandson, but I’ve hated the pain and suffering the year held for many.
I find it’s impossible to immerse myself in the garden and not stay focused on a bright future. In the Coppertop gardens, a few 2020 standouts shine:
We sang a beloved hymn at our daughter’s wedding one week ago that ended with:
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness, ” Lord, unto me!
