Christmas, for many, remains the most favorable time of the year. It is festive, and we get to exchange gifts, and for those of us in colder climates, we get cozy. There is this romance of eggnogs and pajamas, throw blankets, a Christmas-themed movie like Home Alone and your loved ones all snuggled in tightly by a fireplace as the snow falls gently outside our windows. The thought alone makes me want to consider spending the holidays in Vermont.

Now, I could be a sourpuss and make a fuss about why Christmas is this or that but after the last 2yrs we’ve had, we (you) deserve a break from any insensitive, self-righteous, all-knowing, joy stealing son-of-a…wowwww. Autocorrect literally just policed me. Anyway, as we wrap up 2021, we are choosing to not look back at the year we had. Yes, there were many victories we are proud and thankful for and that we will fondly remember forever but, there were losses we want to quickly forget. Without getting preachy, I would rather we hold on to Hebrews 11:1 which says, “we will be sure about the things that we hope for. We will be sure in our minds about things that we cannot even see.”

With that said, I want us to all envision a better tomorrow for ourselves and our families. I want us to dream of wealth and health, laughter, love, and peace of mind. And trust me, as I wish for me, I wish the same for you. And I pray that as we wrap 2021, we’re ushered into the year 2022 with a clearer vision and a sounder mind. Furthermore, I pray that you hit the ground running and that you cover more miles next year than any year before. And may the wind be in your sails and the sun warm your face. May your life be easier going forward because you’re on the right path. May angels guide you, may grace follow you, and may our Lord smile on you.

From your friends at AfroSoundz, we’re sending love, peace, and joy to you and yours. And

“ We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ”
