'Another Year Older' - Poem by Greg Oosterhouse

Here you are, another year older.
Another year past of pushing the boulder.
You have grown a little wiser,
And trouble spewed out like a geyser.

Some days were stormy, others were fair.
Some days were happy, others filled with care.
Through each day, you strived on with faith.
You based your actions on what the Almighty saith.

May this year be filled with blessings and bliss.
At year's end, may you happily say this:
'I feel like I'm in seventh heaven!
May 2008 be as glorious as was 2007! '

Lord, there is none beside, nor before You.
Domine Deus, tu solus sanctus. Amen.
