    No resolutions for me this year
    For I resolve not to change but
    Rearrange my thoughts towards
    A new form of mental elevation

    Hesitation about revisiting old
    Wounds are not a part of the process
    For my resolution of old thoughts
    And broken hearts occurred before
    The turning of the new millenium

    Where will I be in the dawning of a new year?
    Free from pain, free from strain, free from congested
    Piles of thoughtless accusations and assumptions of my
    History being Her-story when in reality the only story I
    follow is the history written on the pages of His word;

    Sounds absurd? Only to those who can’t see where I look
    for the places I dwell conform to serenity, never confusion
    and the illusion of life “pain free” is just another person’s
    futile attempt to deal with the tribulations of success;

    I confess that all this year brought shall not venture with me
    into the new year unless It can grab hold of the new wineskin
    covering a new walk, new life, new smile, for this new day centered
    on this New year when the old year is full of memories of lost lives;

    I sit in the meadow watching the days pass and think how I can
    plant more joy, more peace, more love, more grace more wisdom
    within the world now seeking more comfort not sympathy from
    time when they thought they could it all by themselves;

    And now random acts of kindness replace random acts
    Of violence as injustices are being corrected and what
    Was the norm is now the abnorm as we look to the future
    With hopes that we will be able to fly the “friendly skies”

    Tomorrow isn’t promise, neither is next year but I will
    Walk day for day wiping tears shed for those who still
    Don’t understand that the Master’s Plan is greater than
    Any plan we could construct within our insignifiacnt
    Mental capacity…

    very moving...

    this piece is...

    for this year i did not make
    a futile resolution to be dissolved
    some 10 to 14 days into the
    new year...

    i...like you...decided to rearrange
    as i did last year
    reposition myself to bless
    and be blessed
    to bond with the One
    who holds me in His hands...

    i am better for it
    i
    am
    ...better

    ...and if it be His will
    not my plan...
    i will exceed my SELF
    this new year...

    this was a wonderful sharing
    of you~
