Worth remembering

Another year has flown by
a new chapter begins.  A journey.
grateful for what has been done,
accomplished and shared with others.
It’s worth remembering; wrapped with joy.

perceived as ‘the glass is half full
rather than half empty.’ Optimism.
There’s emergence of hope.  It’s an experience.

while disappointments may blend
within the character of human goal;
given the spirit of wisdom
and perception of God’s wonder;
patience and perseverance make
the whole set in common.

It’s putting into practice amid
the ups and downs.  With newness in faith.
the path that leads to a life of grace.

As St Augustine’s prayer says,
“O Beauty, ever ancient and ever new.”
may this new year herald a cornucopia of blessings,
a gift of faith and peace throughout the year;
drawn to clothe everyone with these things
amid the running sore of pride,
selfishness and anger.
