Another year has come and gone,
And what a year it was …
Seems someone up above had thought
We needed spicing up.
Were our lives really boring?
Were they slow or too sedate?
I think not ... but then again,
‘Tis God who does dictate.
The ups and downs, the twists and turns,
The never-ending ride,
For what our futures hold for us
Is not ours to decide.
See… what I find when searching
For an answer to this year;
Is that our Lord has given several
Crosses we shall bear.
The varied crises that He springs
Upon us time again;
Makes everyone take notice,
Re-assess their lives and then …
It helps us to appreciate
The special things we have …
The people whom we dearly love;
The good times we have had.
And throughout all, He’ll guide us,
Though at times, we’ll be perplexed;
And question as He guides us through
Our next demanding test.
However, as a family,
Supportive in our love;
We’ll comfort one another
As God watches from above.
We’ll pass this test, as very often
In the past we’ve done …
There isn’t anything at all
We cannot overcome!
