HAPPY NEW YEAR
What will the New Year bring? Only God can know.
We can love and laugh and sing, admire the winter snow.
Some of us will go Home, to live in Heavenly bliss.
Greeted by those who’ve gone, to a place much better than this
LET’S START ALL OVER
Did you ever think how great it would be to start all over again?
To re-do all the mistakes we’ve made, now that we know how they end.
To say over, the words hastily spoken, in kinder, gentler ways.
To exchange those sad and remorseful days, for new, and brighter days.
A brand new year is a very good time to see how we’ve done this past.
What to do this coming year to make sure our accomplishments last.
Maybe just a smile, God bless you, a hand to one who‘s feeling blue.
Tell them Jesus loves them, wants them feeling better, and you do too!
WHAT IS CONTENTMENT?
What is contentment? Ask me; I know!
I’m thankful The Lord has blessed me so.
A wonderful wife, great children and friends.
A farm and a home, much more, I can’t tend.
My church and community, nation and food.
I’ve studied creation; it’s “very good!” (Gen.1:31)
Some folks crave money piled to the sky,
Trinkets and gadgets and all they can buy.
As for me and my house, we’ll serve The Lord,
His grace and favor, so freely out-poured.
They’re all available to people like you;
Love, honor, worship; repent is-the clue!
I am content ‘cause Jesus is my friend.
Jesus is my light; His grace will never end!
From Philippians 4: (NIV)
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.
I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.
