The year 2020 brought another devastating and strange event this week
But instead of it being an event of national news
It was one close to my heart and home
I could have started feeling down and in defeat
Instead I looked back and thought about all the fun memories
And it made me smile and block out what was currently happening

Going forward that’s the recipe to use
When 2020 brings terrible news
I’ll think about stuff like past concerts, vacations, backyard BBQs
And any other memory of fun things we used to do

How can you smile in the midst of adversity?
One, by realizing it could have been worse than it turned out to be
Two realizing that with life, God is still in control
If He allowed fun times in the past, in the future fun time we will see
But for now we can still smile about fun memories.

Scripture Reference:
1 Chronicles 29:11
Thine O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine:, thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and Thou art exalted as head above all.
