Is 2020 Worth Reviewing?

In years past, I’d be spending these last days before the New Year reviewing the one gone by. I found it helpful to look back and ponder important events, joys, achievements, surprises, and sorrows and evaluate how I grew spiritually over the preceding twelve months. Then I’d choose one or two things I wanted to work on in the coming year. This year, however, I find myself wondering if it’s even worth reviewing 2020.

Why I Never Make New Year Resolutions

I stopped making New Year resolutions ages ago. Instead, I choose three Scripture passages to copy, print, and keep handy throughout the year. I review them as often as possible and give them some serious prayer time at least once a month. I keep the printed copy in a conspicuous place because I’m one of those people who remembers things I see better than things I hear or note mentally.

Five Things You Might Not Know about January 1

So, when we wake up on New Year’s Day, we can go ahead and turn the calendar page and get excited over the prospects of a brand new year. We can also hit the Bloody Mary’s to alleviate our hangover symptoms. But far more than that, we can rejoice because we are deeply loved by a Mother who is, not only Mother of God but also our Mother.
