A Poem For Trailblazers of a New Day

(sometimes  doggy is just too much! What a lot of laughter she has brought to our lives)

Whether in the lightness that laughter brings
or not, we are cupped in the Hands
of He with whom nothing is impossible

There is nothing new in this poem, 
but somehow even the things we know
need repeating and reminding now and then. 
Wishing you a glorious day!

The dawn of new day flickers where the wick of morn is lit
Where Mercy’s fount is quickened and faith rejoices in it
Where Time plants feet on virgin soil and draws ajar a door
Where none, with lofty dreams or toil has ever been before
Where age-old passions wait to try and disappointment hails
And God still cares for you and I with love that never fails

The birth of what is waiting breaks through gates no latchkey locks
It shimmers on a million lakes and highlights hollyhocks
It glistens in rhinestones of rain and diamonds made of dew
And pours in glorious ‘try again’ to tots like me and you
Where by the good old golden rule we meet our fellowman
And *vow to keep our cool when things don’t go the way we plan

This day the Lord sets free is like a gift to one and all
That grants us opportunity to heed His tender call
Where none have seen or been, therefore nobody can foretell
What good or ill will spill before eventide tolls its bell
But come-what-may of joy or strife, this Truth abides, dear friend
The God who grants this day, this life, is faithful to the end

*This fresh morning has already produced a few stresses
(click link for reason for this potential
because we have a niece getting married today!)­čśů

...but I am as ready as I can be to help in the
seemingly inevitable mad dash preceding the delight
of planting my derierre on a chair
 and breathing 'we made it, thank-you Lord'!

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, 
 mind is stayed on thee: 
because he trusteth in thee.
