A New Year’s Prayer

frozen moon


Just enough raindrops to plant your hope deep,

Just enough losses to learn what to keep;

Just enough chaos to drive you to prayer,

Just enough failure to need Jesus there;

Just enough courage to hold your head high,

Just enough valleys to covet the sky;

Just enough sunshine to process the pain,

Just enough dying to rise up again.

    I don’t just “like” this…I love it. I’m going to put it in the cover of my Bible and let it journey with me this year. It’s just right and more than enough. πŸ™‚

      Sundial to come – it was a little more challenging to gain access in the cold snap we just had. I shovelled myself a little path – should be good to go as soon as the sun comes out! Our hoarfrost was simply magnificent – had a few weeks of pretty constant fog at night, so it froze on in multiple layers. Delectable! Happy New Year, my poetic friend. I pray you will experience HIM in brand new ways!

  12. Just enough loveliness for your heart to shine. Beautiful one Melody!

  13. Happy new year and best wishes to you and yours for health, happiness, peace & prosperity in 2015!
