"Contentment" - An Inspirational Poem for Sunday, January 6th

"Contentment" - An Inspirational Poem for Sunday, January 6th


Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 1976 

Have you been content in the year now past?

Were your achievements heroic or vast?

Was every moment put to good use?

Or, did you in some way this privilege abuse?

These hours of time you cannot retract;

History was made and is now become fact.

Did you spend time with your wee ones in prayer?

Teach them of Jesus, His love and His care?

Did you make time to visit the lonely?

A time of sweet sharing they feel with you only?

Can you now say as the year is near gone;

"It has been bright, as bright as the dawn?"

Or were there moments you'd like to undo?

Erase an impression and start it anew?

Recall hasty words you would never have said,

Had you been guided by His Spirit instead.

Were you contented in the place that He called you?

Faithful and willing in all that you must do?

Or were there times when you slackened your pace?

Shunning your duties, forgetting His grace?

Would you be willing, with all things accounted,

For God to keep record, your life to be mounted?

Or are there changes you feel you would make,

If God would allow you to erase each mistake?

The goal of perfection you cannot achieve,

The moments gone by us we cannot retrieve.

But cheer up, dear Christian, continue to strive,

Be of good courage, your faith is alive.

Intention of good will and peace to all men,

A new year is dawning, be joyous again.

Give praise for achievements, though humble and small,

Because of His mercy they existed at all!

The future holds brightness if His will be done,

Continue the efforts your zeal has begun.

Let God guide you onward, sufficient each day,

Constantly blessing and leading the way.

As a practicing writer, I have always followed an intuitive logic it felt normal to focus on the topic -
come up with ideas/answers -put it on paper. But, nothing could save me when I was writing regarding thermodynamics, as an example,
which, as you can imagine, is not my principal field of expertise.

Anyhow, I took some great tips from your writing style, thanks to that:slightly_smiling_face:

The precise values for vardenafil ODT (Staxyn) have got not been reported, merely this dose provides a
higher systemic pic compared with the film-coated expression (Levitra).
For this reason, these deuce formulations are not like milligram for milligram
and therefore are not standardised. In addition,
scorn the perceptual experience that an ODT expression would conduct
set up more than quickly, both the film-coated tablets and the
ODT conceptualisation experience interchangeable onsets
