We have arrived!!!! It is now 2021!

 2020 has left us, so has members of family, church family, friends and neighbours across the Globe

Highlights of 2020-2021

1. Dr Rose co-authored a chapter in the ‘The International Handbook of Black Community Mental Health’ The ground-breaking manual is a 4 year intensive labour work of Author’s across the Globe. The first book launch was at the beginning of June and the book arrived on Amazon new book shelf on 19th July 2020. Soon after this it became a best -selling manual which appeared on the reading list of many Universities’. One of the first appearance on a reading list is for the ‘Doctorate of Clinical Psychology’

 Maybe this has contributed to the current work of being one of the team of Strategic Mental Health Professional, engaged in the review of the Mental Health Act in England. This is due to be rolled out in 2022.

 2. My next book ‘Where is God in Dementia’ is due to be published in the next few months

3. Designing a Training package of Spiritual Investment as spin off from the past 7 years Black History ‘Healing the wounds Slavery’ events.

4.  Maintain a high personal profile of ‘Health and Wellbeing’ in 2021 The healing/ ministry is looking ahead with great anticipation for another prosperous year as the need for healing from the different levels of pain and suffering that comes with living through and surviving the pandemic.

Although the magnitude of Global celebratory events has been reduced due to the Covid 19 pandemic, as human beings we have with an amazing capacity to adapt to change. The celebrations went as usual and the New Year arrived with a bangs, gongs and fireworks. People risked being fined and indeed were fined for hosting ‘illegal gatherings and parties into the night’

 Living for today became more important that living for ‘tomorrow’ which is regarded as ‘may never come’.  Some people were accidently caught up in the revelling and others set out to deliberately flout the ‘RULES/LAW.

There were churches/groups who pre-recorded worship services that others could watch at their convenience at a later date. People prayed into the New Year with family, friends or prayed alone.   People did what they have always done in spite of the restrictions.

The healing/ ministry is looking ahead with great anticipation for another prosperous year as the need for healing from the different levels of pain and suffering that comes with living through and surviving the pandemic. Globally Governments are confused, people are confused and we have entered an economic CRASH.

 Will we recover individually nationally or globally? Yes we will! although no one knows how long and indeed if there will be a successful recovery period.

Within days of arriving in 2021 we are now in Lockdown 3

A Personal  Testimony

 I have survived many near death experiences in the past, however 2020 was compounded by so many factors and so many different levels of loss through isolation on many levels. I took the opportunity to laugh, cry, and enjoy what was possible such as gardening, music, with friends and family alone, throughout the year.

 The near death experience of losing my husband was colossal; we were together for more than 50 years and married for 49.5 years. I met an angel along life’s journey and said ‘If this what dying from a broken heart looks like; then I am ready to go with you;. The angel replied ‘I am not the angel of death, I am the Angel of life and the message I have for you is…. ‘There is much more to accomplish before the Angel of death meet you further along the path of life’ Your work is not yet finished! Your house is not in the order it should be in so you must continue’

 It was a dream as the possibility of celebrating 50 years of marriage approached. Although I was aware he was unlikely to make it to 50 years, I said to him ‘ you better live long enough for us to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary or I will kill you myself.’ Of course this comment always brought a smile to his face and to others who heard me say it.

 I am still in recovery and struggling with unexplained health issues— at least health issues which the Medical model call ‘Multiple Co-morbidity’ or early onset of organ failure due to the ageing process. Many people including my 10 year old grand- son thinks and often say ‘She looks good for her age or she is very active for her age

 My children are more likely to remind me that I am not as young and I would like to think and behave.  I often hear ‘Mom or Nana—behave yourself’ and asked ‘who is the child here’?

My failing health tumbled as the medical model of health and healing attempted to treat the physical effects of my collapse from carer’s stress. As part of my recovery there are many revelations from the past which is informing the future.

 The ministry has not been as active as I would like, however, to be gaining a better level of health and returning pre 2020 level of medication is not of that work in sight.

Conclusion

The healing/ ministry is looking ahead with great anticipation for another prosperous year as the need for healing from the different levels of pain and suffering that comes with living through and surviving the pandemic. Globally Governments are confused, people are confused and we have entered a global economic CRASH.

 The plans for the ministry will unfold with several seminars and recordings for use by individuals groups, organisations at different levels.
