Holy Happy New Year! - Poem by Carmela Patterson
As the year draws to a close
How did we do, do we suppose?
Have we tried as hard as we could?
Did we accomplish all we thought we would,
Or at the very least.....what we should?
Let's begin anew, again, if you please
By getting down upon our knees
We can greet the dawn of the new year
Without the superfluous cheer of a beer
Placing God first where He belongs
Correcting all of our wrongs.
And with inspiring lovely songs
Thank and Praise Him
For the gift of a new day, a new way
'to see more clearly
and love more dearly...'
Let us mean these most sincerely
As we approach two thousand ten
and do all we can
To be what we ought to be
Loving and living peacefully
God bless us all immeasurably.
HOLY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
