2020 Visions

 by Macy Johnson

“He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;

He enables me to stand on the heights.”

(2 Samuel 22:34 NIV)


On my way home from church one Sunday, I was startled by a lone doe at the highest curve in the road. She greeted me with her head held high, then bounded off into the woods.


God used isolation and changes in plans to bring new visions in 2020. Did we pay attention?

Color Blindness

 by Macy Johnson

“Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.

Honor one another above yourselves.”

(Romans 12:10 NIV)


My husband is colorblind. He has a mild case of deuteranomaly, a form of color blindness in which the green cones in the eye detect too much red light and not enough green light. As a result, reds, greens, yellows, and browns can appear similar. Jeff’s dreams of becoming a Navy pilot crashed with a tell-tale medical exam. In 1974 it was unacceptable for a pilot to be even slightly colorblind. He has learned to be content with his aberration.

Macy Mouse

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. 

I will strengthen you and help you; 

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

(Isaiah 41:10 NIV)


As an Amazon Prime member, I receive monthly emails with new eBooks’ selections. I choose one to download for free and most often select a mystery or historical novel. This month I scanned the entire list, down to the children’s book. To my surprise it was “Julius and Macy – A Very Brave Night” by Annelouise Mahoney.

Off Balance

 by Macy Johnson

“Honest Scales and balances are from the Lord;

all the weights in the bag are of his making.”

(Proverbs 16:11 NIV)


I opened my sleepy eyes on day eleven after receiving the first COVID vaccine. The curtains on my windows spun around me – vertigo! That dreaded sense of imbalance forced me to keep my head straight and level in order to function through the day.


I walk daily to strengthen my legs, as well as my heart. Running is not in my genes. My legs ache to move slowly, steadily on a solid path. Walking poles help to keep me steady and balanced.

“Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.”

(Matthew 11:20 NIV)


A miracle is defined by Merriam-Webster as “a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.”
