Happy New Year!!!!!

Progression

the past
remains in my rear view
not to haunt
or
hinder me
but to
serve
as a reminder of
where I've been
in contrast to
where I am now

although
there's
still a lot of road
for me to travel
I
am grateful
for exactly where i am

all of
the trials i've encountered
have prepared me...
taught me...
built me up...
from my soul
outward...
so
with my
new-found strength
and my
will to persevere
I will
stand up and
make a joyful noise
so that everyone around me
can hear it
loudly and clearly
when I praise God
for all He's done for me

Happy New Year

from yours truly,
