Happy New Year!

New Year’s Day…A day to look back and praise God for his many mercies, and to look forward in expectation of his grace.
One of my favorite hymns is “Another Year Is Dawning”, and I thought I’d share it with you. Take time to read and reflect on these words that Francis Havergal wrote.

Another Year Is Dawning

Another year is dawning!
Dear Father, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee;
Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest;

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness
In the shining of Thy face;
Another year of progress,
Another year of praise;
Another year of proving
Thy presence all the days;

Another year of service,
Of witness for Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.
Another year is dawning!
Dear Father, let it be
On earth or else in heaven,
Another year for Thee.
— Francis Ridley Havergal

Have a blessed year with Jesus!

A Light Thru the Darkness; a book of poetry

Finally Here! The Lord has allowed me to write a nomber of poems and my family and friends have encouraged me to have a book printed. These are all inspirational poems. It is now available and here is the title poem, to give you a sample.

A Light Thru the Darkness

A lighthouse in darkness, shining so full and bright,
Is Jesus my Saviour, my Strength, Guide and Light;
Thru the shadows of troubles and deep shades of night
This Light shines with comfort always in my sight.

Tho dark be the trials, yet Jesus shines thru.
Tho hard be the climbing my strength He renews.
Tho the river o'erflows me and comforts be few
This Light shines on surely, bringing hope to my view.

Thru deepest depression or thru trouble and fear
This Light shines so peaceful, so steady and clear.
In my troubles and trials He always appears;
This Light guides me on to His side ever near.

A Light thru the darkness is my Saviour and Friend,
And He will shine on to the very end;
He will lead me and guide me as Homeward I wend,
And in each situation He will joy to me lend.
