As we take our final steps in 2015, I pray the night be divine
For we have had our share of the year. I don’t know about you but God favored me
He turned denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity
My character, my integrity and even my faith in Christ were questioned and tested
I can’t help it but give HIM the glory through words of praise
Till we hear the voice of 2016 ring @ 12am midnight
I bet the birds will sing out the glory of the New Year in exaltation
For there’s endless possibilities in the moves we are yet to take.
And if this heart of mine is right, by the time the night of 2015 is over,
the stars are going to shine on every dead situation, sorrow, pain and losses
And when the morning of 2016 finally comes;
It’s gonna find us all together in a love and laughter that has just begun.
I speak life and prosperity; and I even speak health.
I loose blessings in heaven and on earth for your sake
Till then, let’s take a slow and easy ride into the New Year
Only lay back and let prayer take us over
For across the bridge, there will be no more sorrow or pain
The sun will surely shine across the river and we will never be unhappy again
See you all in 2016! It cradles we hope.

I notice this, each year I live;

“Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” ~ Calvin Coolidge
“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.” ~ Agnes M. Pharo

for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.” – Unknown
“Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas. All else is outward display–so much tinsel and decorations. For it isn’t the holly, it isn’t the snow. It isn’t the tree not the firelight’s glow. It’s the warmth that comes to the hearts of men when the Christmas spirit returns again.” ~ Unknown
