It's a New Day


 We are all pioneers, in a sense
Trail-blazers where none have gone before...


My one-day-a-week 'charges' LOVE to play pioneer days so yesterday for lunch
we smacked our lips over charred and creative concoctions and celebrated The Good Old Days😛



What will we celebrate today?!

It’s a new day; do not take it for granted
Heaven and earth spill with birth’s unchained hues
Here on the girth where man’s footsteps are planted
Cradle and grave fill with preordained dues

Mercy, once more metes morning’s resurrection
God is not dead as long as there is light
Hope frees dusk’s hostage weighed with apprehension
Faith finds fresh footholds where shadows take flight

Look, darkness bows beneath Now’s golden fingers
Yesterday’s morrow turns into today
Passes the baton as long as life lingers
Bids us be ready, to watch and to pray

What matter most, never changes its edict
Truth does not falter ‘neath time’s bequeathed verve
Creature is subject to Creator’s Verdict
We by the voice of choice prove who we serve

It’s a new day; do not take it for granted
Sing a new song to the Giver of Day
Here on the girth where man’s footsteps are planted
Harvest is coming; watch therefore and pray

An oldie but a goodie...
This is the day that the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Ps. 118:24
