A decade of the twenty-first century
Has already been spent and is gone.
Was it frittered away, unaware of the day
We need look back to see what we’ve done?

Have we thoughtlessly not stopped to thank Him
Every day for the rise of the sun,
For the days, the weeks, the months and the years,
A decade of working and fun?

We live in this world he made for us
Forgetting that it is all His.
Treat each blessed day before it slips away
As the wonderful gift that it is.

What a great reminder to give thanks for every day we have here.  That's a good New Year's resolution.  

It's sad, but I have to admit I'm one who prays more when problems are tumbling around in my life than when all seems to be going well.

God bless,
Rae

Amen, Joyce
We still need to be reminded of a simple deed that we neglect. You say it so beautifully
