2020 as an Overflowing Toilet

Anthony W. Brooks

Just as fodder for thought here, 9 months into the year and who could have predicted this year being this turbulent? An election year in the USA, a terrorist or two being reduced to pieces and smoke, a virus that was blown out of proportion, and still 4 months to go.

Notwithstanding, there are several minor things to consider like whether John MacArthur was right to continue his church services, whether Joe Biden is a pedophile, whether Donald Trump actually knows what he is doing, is Covid-19 as dangerous as they are saying, is it right for the US to kill foreign leaders, is our electoral system rigged, can the democrats possibly go any farther left, will the border wall ever be longer than 3 miles, am I just writing questions to fill space? All of this is a mystery, but some of these questions all pertain to 2020 I guess.

Some Toilets Just Don’t Want to Flush

2020 is the gift that keeps on giving. It doesn’t seem to stop. God in his eternal providence decided to pull up the plunger and allow the water to empty into the bowl. Like my son unrolling an entire roll of paper in the porcelain drain, the waters have backed up so far the proverbial dam had to break at some point. Maybe next year will bring some relief or maybe it won’t. But one thing is for sure… 2020 is going to finish as it began with a huge disappointment. You heard it first here. The squirrels will lay flat on their stomachs and refuse to let you pass on the walking trail and maybe you might step on their tail, but one way or the other 2021 might be better when we get there. Who knows?

Soli Deo Gloria!
