H A P P Y N E W Y E A R!

.....2 0 1 1.....

What a year this has been!

what an unforgettable trek

What a whirl...I've been in

ups and downs? bet!


There's been times of desperate need

plain out...destitute

Yet in the midst...a seed

brightening my darkest route


Why, for a while there...I thought...

Dear God, what's happening?!!

Then His presence gave me...what I sought

and fulfilled my answering...


Lean on me my child and trust

don't you never, ever doubt

You've lost nothing...but things that 'rust' yonder's gate, can't keep you out


So here I stand at the end of a year

that started bleak

God...a man of His Word...stayed near

never leaving my side...and 'still' keeps


Farewell old year of 2010...

corridors laden with joy and much blows

In've been a friend

'cause my tried...did grow


Welcome!...come on in 2011...

I know you've got a few tricks up your sleeve

You're too much for me...but no match for heaven

and we'll conquer you too...that is...Jesus and Me!



Heb 13:8
