It's Resolved

What's resolved you may ask?  Well by faith the problems of 2015.  We end the year my favorite way with my daughter Gabby's birthday.  We went out to eat, went shopping and saw the latest Star Wars.  Later in spite of the cold we lit some fireworks and ushered in 2016.  The cold of 2015 lingers
but the table of 2016 isn't set by last year's trouble no matter how it seems
Rise to the challenges of a new year unencumbered by last year's misery.  Ascend these steps with hope
No matter the time or temperature...God has given us this year
See past the branches of doubt that attempt to claw you
The chill of fear cannot face faith and win
This year's grace is ever green
Winter's landscape will fall behind
God's word will continue to light our way
Look beyond your confines
Be not framed by this world
May the expression of God's faithfulness push away death's chill


  1. the ever faithful hope of being one of God's children
