New Year has come peacefully.
With no special New Year decoration,
I am grateful that I can spend this day at home.
I remember the words at the Christmas Mass on Youtube.
It was said for the people who have no place to stay in this Pandemic.
“I hope they can see that they are in the hands of God
even when they find no place to stay…
The real, authentic things will be born in a secret (hidden) way,
like Infant Jesus in a crib…”
The words are still resonating in my heart,
with gratitude and trust in His Mercy.
