New Year's Prayer

written by Jack Zavada

Lord, this year I want to change, 
and I've said that in the past. 
but now my prayer is different 
'cause I understand at last.

I wanted my own way before, 
I ignored your loving plans. 
But now I'm putting everything 
into your nail-scarred hands.

I promise to obey you 
out of gratitude and love. 
I won't be giving orders 
to my Father up above.

I finally realize the truth 
and so I've changed my prayer. 
The safest place for me to be 
is in your gentle care.

Please be my shepherd, Jesus, 
that's all I ask of you. 
In good times and in bad this year, 
Take my hand and lead me through.


Happy new year folks! :)

A Poem ♥

Just as the year is coming to an end, Rolly wrote a poem for me.  He's in the province now and he only sent me the lines via BBM.  It's hot off the press. :)

Your thoughts warm me on a cold and windy night
And unparalleled joy springs from my heart upon your sight
You're the unwavering star that constantly sparkles in the sky
The reliable beacon that lights my path as I fly
From here to eternity my feelings will not falter
We will conquer challenges and leap roadblocks together
Life's events may distress or astound
But in every step of the way, I will always be around

Aaaww. Thanks love.♥ I could imagine you on the hammock staring at the sky while writing this. Hehe. You're wonderful, like I always say. I love you.
