Happy New Year's Eve!!!


December 31
by S.E. Kiser

Best day of all the year, since I
May see thee pass and know
That if thou dost not leave me high
Thou hast not found me low,
And since, as I behold thee die,
Thou leavest me the right to say
That I tomorrow still may vie
With them that keep the upward way.

Best day of all the year to me,
Since I may stand and gaze
Across the grayish past and see
So many crooked ways
That might have led to misery,
Or might have ended at Disgrace-
Best day since thou dost leave me free
To look the future in the face.

Best day of all days of the year,
That was so kind, so good,
Since thou dost leave me still the dear
Old faith in brotherhood-
Best day since I, still striving here,
May view the past with small regret,
And, undisturbed by doubts or fear,
Seeks paths that are untrod as yet.

The photo reminds me of when my girls were little. They were not averse to getting as dirty as possible in the pursuit of play.

Happy New Year to you and yours from me and mine.

Thank you everyone!!! It was so nice to meet all of you this year. It's nice to be around this part of the blogmosphere. Everyone watches out for everyone else. We all give and take a little bit of advice. We laugh with those who laugh and mourn with those who mourn. And when attacked we all stand ready at arms for eachother. It's a wonderful neighborhood!!! Thanks for letting us live here amongst great brothers and sisters and countrymen of all sorts.

Mr. and Mrs. Frank,

Happy New Year! Thank you for sharing such an insightful poem! It definitely inspires to not look back with regret and remember that, truly, God's mercies are renewed every morning!

God bless you and yours this year… 5768/2008! Ain’t ‘8’ great? ‘8’ is a great number to have attached at the end of this year. ‘8’ is God’s number for ‘new beginnings’… surely, this year will hold new beginnings for all of us, especially when we trust Him!
18 “ Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

Shalom,
Deborah

Jason, were there any friendly-fire casualties last night? You know your gun-hand gets a little shakey when you start pounding NyQuil!

The Frank Family said...

No casualties except for anyone in the area trying to sleep. Between 6 of us we shot a .22 revolver that belonged to Kim's grandfather, a .357 magnum six shooter, a 30-30 lever action rifle, a 12 gauge, and a 10 gauge. Lots of fun, my brother, you should have joined us!

A brand new year is here, another year filled with expectations, resolutions, fears and forecasts. A year that will disapoint many, surprise some and make a few really happy. My sincerest wish is that everyone will be happy, and share a moment of joy, peace and understanding.

That is my New Year's wish. I hope you all share it with me.

Michael said...

Is that one of your little ones in the picture, Jason?

Looks like she oughta put the neighborhood back where it belongs...

Happy New Year to you and yours!

The Frank Family said...

Yup, she's mine!
