Grateful — 2017

Sometimes we do not have the words that fully go with the feeling and associated expression. But ‘I am grateful’ is a simple summary that works very well.

I am grateful!

We went through several threats, uncertainties, buyers remorse, good choices, bad choices….
We had to recover several times, and we did.
We had opportunities come demanding a price that we paid happily although it cost us.
We made new friends, and reconnected with timeless friends.
People made our lives better; we made some other’s lives better
….

Again, I am grateful to God for the year 2017. 

Cheers

Happy New year, 2018

​Grateful — November 2017

When you see another rise
Maybe you played a part
Even with a cheer or a prayer
Or maybe with nothing to count
You rejoice and are glad
Glad for the good that has come out
Grateful for the success of another

You formed happiness in me
Sharing the joy in you
Gratitude grew inside
Stirred by the news

I am grateful
Happy
Joyful

Debts for which I am credited

Debt to spouse, by marriage

Debt to children, by parenthood

Debt to parents, by sonship

Debt to friends, by friendship

Debt to self, for Christ’s sake

Debt to man, for the dignity inherent in mankind

Debt to God, for the dignity inherent in God

​Grateful — September 2017

New friends come
And new friends go
Some go old
Others we’re yet to know

It was a pleasure to meet you
talk with you
eat with you
walk with you
work with you
I am grateful for the time that was
Grateful for the time that is

Thank you

​Grateful — August 2017

So I made a new friend
Not by accident
There was something to give
Gratitude

I am grateful
You are faithful
I did’t have to ask
Lover

There’s stuff I need to learn
Some where I’ve got to be
That I learned ’em
That I got there

Thank you

Grateful — June 2017

We’ve come to half the year
We’re still here
Not by might or strength
It’s because you’re there

Hell wanted me prey
Like she knew nowhere to stay
But she had to fail
For mine was not her place

We’ve come to half the year
Tomorrow is blessed
Not by might or strength
It’s because you’re there

Thank you, thank you
I have a say
Thank you, thank you
‘Made a way

It’s because you’re there
It’s because you’re there
