A New Year With The Lord

A new year is about to unfoldimagesetj7bme2
With new opportunities to explore
Doors will open for new experiences,
New adventures with the Lord

 

Remember not the former things,
The things of this past year,
The Lord will do new things in us,
Much more than we are aware

 

For He will make a way for us
As we put our trust in Him
And He will guide our every step
By His presence we have within

 

What God has placed within our hearts,
We find we’ll be able to do
If we look for the opportunities,
We’ll see the door to go through

 

We mustn’t let anything hold us back
But rise up and take our place
And be all that God wants us to be
With a fresh touch of His grace.

M.S. Lowndes

Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.  Psalm 65:11

Christmas-Celebrate Jesus Birth

l
Christmas is the time of year to reflect with thoughtful prayer,….
to cast aside of all bad thought and habits you expressed throughout the year.
We can all join together to celebrate Jesus birth,….a renewal and beginning right here on planet earth.

Jesus left all of us a message while here on earth, to love, to care.
his words were ever simple, plain and so very, very clear:
“Be kind to one another throughout the coming year”.

Christmas is the time of year to spend with the young and old, the needy, greedy and the poor. A time to love, a time to share.
let us all spread our love around with all our heart and soul,….
for the love of your neighbor should never turn so cold.

Joseph Martino

Great Truths

GREAT truths are dearly bought. The common truth,
Such as men give and take from day to day,
Comes in the common walk of easy life,
Blown by the careless wind across our way.

Great truths are dearly won; not found by chance,
Nor wafted on the breath of summer dream;
But grasped in the great struggle of the soul,
Hard buffeting with adverse wind and stream.

Sometimes, ‘mid conflict, turmoil, fear and grief,
When the strong hand of God, put forth in might,
Ploughs up the subsoil of the stagnant heart,
It brings some buried truth-seeds to the light.

Not in the general mart, ‘mid corn and wine;
Not in the merchandise of gold and gems;
Not in the world’s gay hall of midnight mirth,
Nor ‘mid the blaze of regal diadems;

Not in the general clash of human creeds,
Nor in the merchandise ‘twixt church and world,
Is truth’s fair treasure found, ‘mongst tares and weeds;
Nor her fair banner in their midst unfurled.

Truth springs like harvest from the well-ploughed
fields,
Rewarding patient toil, and faith, and zeal.
To those thus seeking her, she ever yields
Her richest treasures for their lasting weal.
