“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

Happy New Year to all of you who have been so faithful in reading these things that the Lord has laid upon my heart. I pray that this will be a blessed year for all of you.

I just want to leave this poem with you, hoping it will be a blessing.


As a new year dawns upon us, uncharted and unknown.

We know not what each day will bring, but do not walk alone.


When we have put our trust in God His promise is secure.

That He will guide each step we take And lead us through each door.


Each circumstance we face each day He filters by His love.

We need not fear or question Him, He watches from above.


Our thoughts may sometimes deceive us, but He knows what is best.

And as we yield ourselves to Him, He’ll take us through each test.


So as another year begins, no better way to start,

Than trusting in the Saviour’s love, and giving Him our heart.


God bless you all.
