New Year's Optimism

As I hang my new calendar, I reflect

There is tranquillity in my soul
Though much conflict exists in our world.

Confidence in God is strong
In spite of great uncertainty.

Spiritual riches endure
When finances dwindle.

Treasure thrives in Heaven
While material possessions crumble.

Hope is eternal
Even when one's hold on good health
Seems tenuous.

Underneath are the Everlasting Arms
Although life may be sad and lonely.

Aging brings its problems
But each new day is a gift.

A Divine perspective
Will banish doubts.

I will greet every morning with praise
And walk each step
In companionship with my Lord.

I will be POSITIVE
In this NEW YEAR!
