During This Past Year

During This Year…


 


During this past year I think of


 what I wanted to  “achieve…”


And think about the things


  that I’ve received…


 


I think about the trials and mountains


 that have arisen…


It’s almost like looking through


“a glass prism.”


 


The times we’ve had together


As a family normally would.


There are things I wanted to accomplish,


that I knew I could!


 


But there’s one thing most important


 that is a reminder…


What’s done for God is what I call


 the “ultimate decider…”


 


The treasures that I lay in heaven will be


 more precious than gold.


And will be a blessing to future


generations untold.


 


There are blessings from God 


that  I’ve gained…


  I have very little room


to really complain…


 


As this next year is before us


and is about to appear…


I know the coming of my Lord


 draws ever so near…


 


May I make plans to live


with my beautiful Lord.


In heaven… May I seek to have


my treasures stored…


 


Only in Christ … Will I find true


joy and contentment…


May I let go of any unforgiveness


or resentment…


 


Thank you my Lord  for everything


 that you’ve given!


You’ve blessed us and are the


 reason I'm livin’!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
