What New Year's Day Means To Me

First New Day Of 2014

I am grateful for this New Year's Day

A day to get some rest

The last year was so busy

So a day off would suggest

To prepare for a new beginning

Not full of worry but to anticipate

More time to be with my family and

Healthier food upon my plate;

An increase in finances would be nice

Less anxiety over the bills

And to see my Dad and Mom reach

Their next birthdays, only as the

Good Lord wills.

Another story to write, another song to record

And perhaps I will finish reading that book.

And maybe a new hobby in the kitchen,

I will learn more things to cook.

The first day of a new year

Is a time to throw away old

The clothes that are from 1994

And the stack of magazines collecting mold

I can sort out my CD and DVD collections

Perhaps write another review.

Then to answer all those unread emails

And then I will send out a few

To my relatives who live in other countries

I love my international connection

And then I will daydream of lost loves

Who never could return my affection.

All I can say is that this is the day

To give God the total praise

Because He has allowed this earth

To continue

So we can correct our imperfect ways.

A Belief To Have For The New Year

In the Book of Isaiah, chapter 54, verse 17 says,

"No weapon forged to be used against you will succeed; you will refute everyone who tries to accuse you. This is what the Lord will do for his servants - I will vindicate them, says the Lord."

What this scripture is saying is that The Lord God who created each one of us has the ability to protect and prevent diversity from having anything stand in the way of the desire to succeed for those who believe in His Promise. To call on Him is to depend on Him. And that is what this writer is prepared to do this new year and always.

Happy New Year. May you live well and prosper.

This Is The Day That The Lord Has Made

      Imperfect is so true, but if we care for each other and our natural world, I think that the rest will follow.
