A Toast to 2023

By Nancy Virden (c)2023

Let’s Lift Our Glasses!

To Hope!

To that undefinable drive to see and do more.

To Hope!

To the very reason that we get up, stay up, and try again.

Hope’s beams chase away fearful shadows of self-doubt;

Hope’s faith proves that life’s goodness is not limited to what we can see.

To Hope!

From the pit, hope seems nonexistent, yet it is the very cord pulling us out.

To The Source of all hope, Christ our unchanging hope, let us give 2023!

May next year be better than the last!

Happy New Year!

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

New Year toasts have been an Always the Fight Blog tradition for 12 years.
