Poem for the New Year

LORD THANK You for another day,
Within this life of mine.
Give me strength to live it well,
Whatever I may find.
Bestow from Your abundance,
Whatever I may lack
To use the hours wisely,
For I cannot have them back.

Lord thank you for another day,
In which to make amends
For little slights or petty words
Inflicted on my friends.
For sometimes losing patience
With problems that I find.
For seeing faults in other lives,
But not the ones in mine.

Lord thank you for another chance
In which to try to be
A little more deserving
Of the gifts You've given me.
For yesterday is over,
And tomorrow's far away,
And I remain committed,
To the good I do today!

-Grace E. Easley

Hope is wishing a thing to come true.
Faith is believing that it will!
