Poetry Sunday ~ A New Year

Pss. 51: 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

A New Year
***
The New Year comes in a cool swift wind
Time for change in the hearts of men
Trees are bent some boughs are pinned
Seasonal snow once again.

The tides of change, a raging sea
Tossed me about this year of need
All my friends heard my plea
Reached out to me in blessed deed.

With twists and turns the year gave rise
Silent echoes stirred the night
Stars they dripped from the skies
An answer to, my inner plight.

My soul made whole by years end
The stormy sea now rests.
A new day unfolds, my body to mend
I embrace the new years quests!
***
Isa. 40: 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Rom. 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I choose a one word theme each new year. 2011 was trust. 2012 was thankful. For 2013 I debated back and forth between renewal and restoration. Finally settled on restoration though renewal still holds a lot of appeal. Hugs dear friend!

Hi Beth :D

Glad you visited!!!
I would go with RENEWAL because that is what this year, I can feel it in my bones, is going to be! Restoration is really a restoring the old, and WE WANT RENEWAL!!!Renewal is making things NEW! :)

*hugs* and God Bless!
