They say that time binds every wound,
soothes every sore, tunes what’s un-tuned
‘til it’s only good times, we remember.
Well, I don’t know how true that is but
this past year, has surely made me stronger.
Without the pain, would we know joy?
or recognize the blessedness of fullness if
we never felt the emptiness of hunger?
And so, I want to thank You Lord-
For giving me another year
of knowing You.
For meeting every need I have,
while saying “no” to some requests;
You’ve demonstrated wisdom when
You’ve only wanted what was best.
So, thank you Lord, for another year!
I know who holds my future,
whatever it may be;
though sorrows and the good times too,
are such a mystery.
And so, another New year’s eve
I’ll celebrate God’s love.
I’ll be counting every single day, a blessing.
Another new year, from above.
