What’s New in ’22?

Will we ever heal
or stop the repeal?
Something new to battle,
minds and mouths rattle.

Our own routines
or what’s seen on a screen,
either right or wrong
with no in between.

No matter the left,
no matter the right,
politics, health, & life,
something’s sure to ignite.

The road less traveled
or in the fast lane,
we make our speeds
hard to maintain.

We push and pull
work hard to display,
trendy and popular
is this really the way?

Another new year
the same old song.
It will be better this time
what could go wrong?

We shrink to the moment
get lost in the thought,
lose sight of eternity,
forget what’s been taught.

Justice and peace,
kindness and love,
mercy and freedom,
We need help from above.

Concern for another
and a shot of care,
immunization to hate
might boost good air. 

K.L. Hale

What isn’t new? The free gift of grace and love from Jesus Christ. No matter what, you are loved. 🤍
