Thoughts on the Last Day of the Year

As the year 2012 comes to its end I look back at the joys and sorrows that came my way.I thank the Giver of all blessings. Also for the blessings in disguise...

The Year That Was Personally

The leap year 2012 has leaped long
And is about to say to all adieu
Leaving behind a line of memories
A few gains and losses a few

With eager joy I had welcomed it
With much expectation and hope
At the end of the package, I carry
Gifts to thank for and answers to grope

The moments and days of life were graces
The flowers and thorns that came were gain
Grateful am I for the gift of faithful friendship
And all love and joy and suffering and pain

There were days of success and days of failures
There were days of smiles and days of tears
Some days brought bouquets, some brick bats
Some were moments of peace, some of fears

I lost a few friends but gained a few new ones
Some lost friends came back in renewed embrace
Warm and assuring their everlasting presence
Isn’t this what is called grace upon grace?

As the year crosses the finishing line
I wish to thank the One who bestowed on me
The days to celebrate His love and sing His glory
This is what that makes life meaningful truly

I thank Him for all the gifts, big and small
Thank Him for days, nights and morns
Thank Him for many blessings in disguise
Thank Him for sorrows, separations and thorns.
