A New Day, A New Year



January First dawned cold and clear

there was Hope in the air

Although I slept through God’s miraculous

morning show, it still happens everyday, 

whether the skies are blue or cloudy.


Every morning I awaken to God’s blessings

I know He takes care of me

Not everything goes well each day, 

yet I can trust Him to watch over me,

keeping me safe and guide me.


The waters He leads me beside

are still and refresh me, 

so are the green meadows

He claimed my life so many centuries ago

Why should I doubt Him?

His promises have not failed to materialize

during my lifetime when I believed in Him

They happen in His time, not mine.


Psalm 23:1-3 - “The Lord is MY [emphasis mine] Shepherd, I shall not want; He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters, he restores my soul…” Revised Standard Version.


John 10:27 - “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. RSV.

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
