This year so much blessing shows,
That eloquence in prose it outgrows.
So my sentiments I must immerse,
And rehearse in verse.
This winter no discontent,
No regrets for this year past
In joy has been spent.
This new year no fear
In God’s hands held fast,
So my soul to praise adhere.
This 2014 a year of provision,
All needs met when in prayer cast,
Thanks to the Father’s loving precision.
This list a car and job includes,
A baby and a house at last,
Much to keep in mood of gratitude.
This respite after canyon quest,
So many glories grand and vast,
Now needs must mind and body rest.
This 2015 in promise spread ahead,
A parental vocation nailed to the mast,
So shepherd on faithful God-head…
