2016 was kind of a rough year. But the wassail song reminds me of a time when folks who were less fortunate, who were perhaps also feeling a little lost in the wilderness, banded together to offer love and joy to those around them.
They’d sing and dance in the streets and go door to door with this offering in hopes of a little something to take the edge off their hunger, to warm their bodies, to keep their spirits lifted as they continued on their journey.
And so I am practicing the same. Love and joy, come to you. And God bless you and send you a happy new year.
- What does it mean for you to practice love and joy?
- What do you need to have a happy new year?
