Another New Gift

Welcome to another new year. Another chance to fulfill the calling of our Lord in your life.

I hope you enjoy this short poem I penned while reflecting on the future.

Another New Gift

Another blank page
In the journal of life
Each breath is a pen, each day a stage
Write on ‘til the end in bliss or in strife

Another new day
Begins with the sun
Offers a new start, opportunity, a way
Open your heart, live with abandon

Another calendar arrives
‘January’ the letters read
Hope and wishes: on these it thrives
Blanks filled with resolutions up ahead

Another year to live
Day by day with intent
Planning your path with guidance He gives
Step out in faith wherever you’re sent

Treasure these gifts, sisters and brothers
Spend them on self, prosperity, or others.
The choice is yours to make, my friend.
Choose wisely. This year won’t come again.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May His grace shine on you. May His hope sustain you now and for all eternity.
